The history of Cape Cod is a long and storied one, but that doesn’t mean that the vacation home you stay in has to have the same. Some of us just love that “new home smell” and our Pretty Picky Properties Stepping Stones Sanctuary 279-C  offers just that! Built in 2022 while retaining the historic look of Cape Cod, this 4 bedroom, 3 bath escape located in Chatham is 100 percent modern and sleek! Outside, traditional clapboard siding is still fresh and unweathered, the portico adds elegance while providing protection from the elements, and an attached two car garage gives the home the feel of a family home, and because Stepping Stones offers room for up to 8 people to live together in peace and harmony, very large families will enjoy their stay with us! This guide to one of our newest homes in Cape Cod will help you mark off the second most important item on your vacation planning list, the one titled “choose a place to stay!” 

The Unexpected 

Step inside this light filled space and discover that vacationing on historic Cape Cod can be filled with modern conveniences and stylish design as you follow the paths created by golden stained hardwood flooring into rooms that welcome and impress. As in the New England tradition, most rooms provide their own separate space, but there is still a feel of openness and connection, ensuring that no one will feel disconnected or lonely during their stay in Stepping Stones Sanctuary.  

Walls painted a soft gray provide the perfect backdrop to slipcovered sofas in white and nautical blue, while beach themed art and a state-of-the-art television add interest and color to the space. A fireplace adds romance and warmth, a built-in bar on the back wall is stocked with a wine chiller and built in bookshelves that surround the fireplace and the television mounted over the mantel offer shelves lined with art pieces and cabinets behind which hides more surprises.  

The dining room, situated just off the kitchen, invites guests to gather round its sleek wood table and play games, devour meals, or just relax with a cup of coffee before starting each day. Walk a few steps to the sleekly gorgeous and fully equipped kitchen where marble countertops, subway tiled backsplash, and chef quality appliances compete for attention with the view from the windows over the sink. A pot filler over the stove, an expansive breakfast bar fronted by comfortable bar stools, and a dishwasher hidden away behind white panels ensures that all your needs are met, but the view from the window ensures that the desires of your soul are met as well!  

Each of the 4 bedrooms provide comfort, style, and a little something extra that make them stand out, starting with the primary suite. A king bed with padded headboard is destined to provide happy dreams and deep sleep while the ensuite bath’s deep and jetted soaking tub will be the perfect lead in to that perfect sleep. A television offers a way to quiet the brain for those that desire a little extra nighttime entertainment. Queen beds anchor the spaces in the upstairs bedrooms, tucked away under quirky angles that mimic the look of old attic bedrooms while providing high ceilings that are much more practical, making it far less likely guests will bump their heads in the night! A second master bedroom on the second floor, a dorm style bedroom with 2 queen beds and a trundle, and views of the community from large windows that open to let the cool breezes in; these bedrooms are the perfect spots to retreat to after a long day of vacationing excitement.
