Adams Inspired Federal

Four original fireplaces, wide board pine floors and period moldings are a few of the many original details still intact. The scale is grand with a 10 foot wide central hall, formal parlors, palladian window, a 25 x 13 foot gathering room on the second floor, three season porch and a beautiful country kitchen with quartz counters and stainless steel appliances. Central air and security system. Park like setting with a barn/studio offering fabulous space for a home office, hobbies, arts, yoga etc. Five minutes to Main Street Chatham, 25 minutes to Hudson or Albany. This is a historic gem which is a candidate for inclusion on The National Register of Historic Places.
