Home for Sale in Canaan, NY

The Jason Warner House

The Jason Warner House, a prized Canaan landmark, was originally built in 1792 with later additions and modern amenities. The Adams style colonial architecture is beautifully presented with a graceful curved staircase, arched entries, period moldings, and formal parlors displaying fireplaces with intricate mantle carvings. A later saltbox addition brought about a kitchen with breakfast room, den with fireplace, and a tavern room walled with old attic floorboards boasting an authentic bar with tap.The postcard 59 acre setting spans both sides of a quiet country road. There are two deep ponds perfect for stocking trout, a writers studio, and a magnificent 2-story post and beam barn. ¬†Jason’s granddaughters, Anna and Susan, were notable American authors, spending many a summer here. Those bucolic summers inspired creative works including Wide Wide World and Queechy. ¬†Thoughtfully protected by a Columbia Land Conservancy easement, this historic treasure is around the corner from Queechy Lake for kayaking, fishing, and swimming. The village of Chatham, Tanglewood, skiing and fine dining are all a relaxing 20 minute or less drive.
