Some of the features found in traditional style homes include hardwood floors, a formal dining room, kitchen island and master with walk-in closet. Chatham is home to Southern-style homes with wrap-around porches, full basements and patios.

Transitional style homes

Some homes have a mix of modern and traditional styles. For example, you may be able to find a home with an elegant coffered ceiling in a dining room with contemporary flooring and lighting.
