Originally constructed in 1910, this cheerful and thoughtfully laid-out Cape-style home in northern Columbia County offers a quintessential country aesthetic and plenty of space to host a crowd.
The first floor of the house feels truly expansive with an oversized dining room – with a fireplace – large enough to host 8 (or more) comfortably. The bright first-floor primary suite boasts skylights and its own private porch, and a second bedroom on this floor has a tiled three-quarter bathroom.
The highlight of the first floor is its great room: a stunning living area added onto the house about 10 years ago with high, vaulted ceilings, hanging pendant lighting, a library wall, and a propane fireplace. As a bonus, there is a sleeping loft with a built-in daybed above the library wall, all accessed via a whimsical railed ladder.
The ample kitchen has beautiful soapstone countertops, a dining nook ideal for informal meals, and sliding glass doors that open onto the grilling area. To round it off, the first floor also has a dedicated home office with glass french doors opening onto the dining room.
On the second level of the house is a spacious bedroom perched overlooking the treetops at the rear of the property. This bedroom also has a full bathroom ensuite, with a washer/dryer tucked away in this space as well. The final sleeping area is on the second floor of the home – and it would also work very well as an additional office, yoga room, or library.
The backyard of this home is a true retreat. A sizable deck with a sunken hot tub is the perfect spot to decompress, and the landscaped backyard creates a beautiful backdrop for gatherings outside. The rolling green lawn and mature evergreen trees around the property envelop the house in privacy… this country house truly is the getaway you’ve been craving. Additionally, as a Canaan resident you’re eligible to join the Adams Point Beach Association on Queechy Lake for swimming and boating just 1.5 miles up the road.
Located just 10 minutes away from the Village of Chatham, enjoying a meal out or stocking up on local fare is easy to do. Some highlights in Chatham include: Bimi’s Cheese Shop, Brown’s Emporium and Our Daily Bread bakery. Conveniently close to the Berkshires, it is easy to enjoy Tanglewood for music in the summertime and Jiminy Peak and Catamount for skiing in the winter. Hudson is 35 minutes away, and the house is located 2 hours and 20 minutes from NYC.
