Location: Old Chatham, N.Y.
The Skinny: Set on 16 acres of idyllic rolling farmland, this gentleman's farm consists of a colonial farmhouse, c. 1790, a giant red monitor barn, and, in a nod to modern entertaining, a recently built "party barn." The exquisitely maintained main house shows off original features—wide-plank flooring, hand-rolled windows, and several fireplaces—but also incorporates a stylish modern kitchen (with a chef's dream La Cornue range, no less), central air conditioning, and radiant heating. The grounds, dotted with old growth trees and two private ponds, provide space "suitable for horses," while the cavernous barn has enough room for at least a dozen steeds. The property is impressive, but Manhattan expats might be expecting a swimming pool to be included in the $1.495M asking price.
