Can’t decide between old and new? This Old Chatham homestead with an antique barn offers an appealing mix of both.
There’s no better time than the New Year to celebrate instances when the past rubs elbows with the present. And, there’s no better to way to see the concept at its finest than in the bevy of beautiful homes we’re featuring this week on Upstater. Example Number 1: This bold remodel of a c.1920s Sears Roebuck kit home, complete with fearless exterior color scheme, situated on 50 acres of land in rural Columbia County, NY.
The 1,356-square-foot home has been renovated to include an open, breezy floorplan filled with enough built-in shelves to entice even the most ardent of book lovers/hoarders. Cozy up with one from your curated collection in front of the brick living room fireplace…
…or satisfy your culinary curiosity in the big country kitchen complete with an antique stove and butcher block counter tops.
There are wood floors throughout, including within the home’s two bedrooms (can one really have too many bookshelves?).
Also on the property is a separate studio, tucked back in the trees and ideal as a guest house or yoga/meditation/music/art studio…
…as well as a rambling c.1800s barn – silo included – ready to for you to transform it into something new.
The sprawling property comes with its own pond, which you see from the deck.
If you’re looking for a home that skillfully combines old-fashioned features with new concepts, stick with Upstater all this week for more of our favorite listings across the Hudson Valley and Catskills!
