Family-Friendly Chatham NY Farmhouse and Workshop, $395K

Situated in the Columbia County, this Chatham NY farmhouse offers lots of room for the family…

and this good news for us this week on Upstater. We’re searching the listings for homes in good school districts, and Chatham Central Schools ranks high according to Niche.com. This farmhouse is less than two miles from both the middle and high school. Not quite walking distance, but certainly close enough to make school mornings just a teensy bit easier when every minute counts.

And, since there are three bedrooms available in this 1,500+ square-foot home, a small family would feel comfortable here. The first floor is an open-scheme with a living room fireplace, built-ins, plank floors, and a updated kitchen/dining room. Other updates include interior/exterior paint, furnace with on-demand hot water, and baths.

The screened-in porch transitions to the outside and the garden patio. Additionally, the .8 acre property comes with a barn, which has its own electricity and could be a workshop or studio. Or, it could be a well-appointed guest cottage for some lucky, lucky visitors.

Located in northern Columbia County just west of the Taconic Parkway. Hudson city on the riverfront is less than 25 minutes away, and NYC is less than 2.5 hours away via the Taconic. Also within striking distance: Omi International Arts Center sculpture park (this is a free outdoor space, and we love it), Martin Van Buren Historic Site, Catamount ski mountain, and western Massachusetts.
