An ultra-dark charcoal-grey exterior intensifies the allure of this Chatham Contemporary house, but wait until you see the interior.

As far as home design trends are concerned, nothing screams “bespoke Upstate NY house” than a dark or black exterior paint job. That’s not exactly a bad thing. In fact, we love the dramatic dark exteriors that keep cropping up more often in our real estate listing searches, especially when juxtaposed against a snowy country backdrop. You could just go get a bunch of Sherwin Williams Tricorn Black and get to work. Or, you can hang out with us this week as we feature our favorite Dark Exteriors from the Hudson Valley and Catskills listings!

We’re kicking things off in rural Columbia County, about 16 miles northeast of Hudson, NY, in the town of Chatham. This woodsy setting is a genuine getaway, which is exactly what this Scandinavian-inspired home – and the six acres upon which it sits – offers a lucky new owner. The 2,000-square-foot interior consists of bright, open spaces with minimal adornments, allowing details like maple floors, large windows, and sleek built-ins to be the true stars of the show.
