Down A Backroad
Chatham, New York
You've always wondered what you would find if you took a drive down that backroad. Big old maples line the road, fields and pastures rise up to the horizon. And there, up on a knoll, sits that magical 1700s Colonial that you knew would be there. Take a look at the moldings on the windows, around the doors and the cornices. Walls of carefully placed stone sit for generations. A pond to reflect by. A field or two to run across, chasing the sunset. A pool, for fun, with a pool house and a bluestone patio for an impromptu dinner outdoors. There's a garage to park the cars in, right next to the old maple sugar shack. Now for the inside. The mudroom hallway has a full bath and plenty of closet space. A sun filled great room at the end of the hall leads to the patio or the kitchen. A laundry room and another bath. And then the kitchen. Space to create memorable meals. Exposed beams, vaulted ceiling, a sitting area and a dining room with a fireplace. You can feel the memories forming. A living room with a fireplace and a den, did you notice the patina on the floors? the windows? Upstairs (there are two stairways which is always fun) you can start with the master. Large and full of country. Down the hall three more bedrooms and another full bath. Just like you had always imagined.
I'd love to see this...
