An ‘Architectural Digest’ Home for Less than a Million in Chatham, NY

center-hall colonial

Don’t spend seven figures when you could score this elegant center-hall Colonial house…

Originally built in 1827, this four-bedroom, 3,600-square-foot country house lists for $895K, but it boasts million-dollar bragging rights: It was once featured in Architecture Digest. And, we can see why. The sun-drenched interior might shed some light on the subject.

This meticulous restoration of a classic Colonial comes with modern comforts, as well, like radiant heat under marble floors in the center hall (center-hall Colonials are so-named for their distinctive main-floor hallway that with entries to living room/parlor/dining room/kitchen). Further, the kitchen is a chef’s dream with six-burner range and center island with marble counter tops, and the baths come with updated fixtures.

Living room and dining room both include fireplaces. Rounding out the first floor is the mud/laundry room, office, and family room in the converted sun porch (original windows included).

Upstairs is the master suite, guest suite, and two additional bedrooms plus another full bath. Our favorite second floor feature? The window seating area. The pink bedroom, however, runs a close second.

Soak up the gorgeous 1.6-acre property from the blue stone patio…

…because how will you be able to resist its charms?

Located in northern Columbia County, east-of-Hudson, in the hamlet of North Chatham. It’s convenient to I-90, the Taconic State Parkway, the Capital Region, Massachusetts, and the Hudson Valley.
