The Skinny: From the street, the house at 82 Marsh View Road in Chatham looks just like any other in this quaint neighborhood, but it's hiding a secret. The gambrel-roofed shingle-style Cape Cod cottage at that address is, in fact, just a guest house for a much larger, more modern estate on a private island across the marsh, reached by a narrow wooden footbridge. The main house, completed in 2002, is a glassy modern number with classic New England touches, like beadboard and arched windows, and enjoys 360-degree views of the surrounding water and marshes. Offering a total of six bedrooms and six baths, this 8.25-acre property is listed for almost $3.8M. For more Cape Cod real estate and neighborhood news, head to the brand new Curbed Cape Cod.
