Description

A tour de force of the Federal and Adam architectural styles native to the region, the Van Valkenburgh House was built during the war of 1812 in the historic and quaint hamlet of Chatham Center.

The four-bedroom, three-bath home has four wood-burning fireplaces, original wide plank pine floors, 12 over 12 windows, a ten-foot-wide center hall, and a unique and intimate family gathering room on the second floor. Among the many carefully restored historical details in the home are the recurring elliptical forms in windows and woodwork (a signature touch of the Adam brothers), an impressive Palladian window above the front entrance, and flushed gabled wings on either side of the original white-pine main façade.

The generously proportioned property has beautiful moments outside, including a pebbled dining patio and idyllic yet easy-to-maintain landscaping. The restored and fully insulated 2,000 square-foot barn, with electric and a new septic system, is currently being used as a ceramic studio and gym and could easily be converted into a guest house or office.

Recent improvements include a new roof on the main home, Workstead lighting in many rooms, a new and extended driveway, a generator, and central air.

The Van Valkenburgh House is only minutes to Chatham, 25 minutes to Hudson and Albany, and just over two hours to New York City and Boston. Nearby favorites include Bimi’s Cheese Shop, the Chatham Bookstore, Crandell Theatre, Bartlett House, Morningbird, Art Omi, and Jack Shainman Gallery’s: The School.
