It has taken me a little while to get on the twitter band wagon and I am not really sure how to tweet but (8 comments)

Chatham Fields is a picturesque street in the heart of small town USA. Regarding the neighborhood, if homes are all about location, location, location, then you will be about 3 minutes from the K-3 school, 2 minutes from the 4-5 school, 10 minutes from the 6-8 school, and 5 minutes from the high school. The new grocery store is less than 5 minutes away and as is East Hampton’s Route 66 (0 comments)
