Old Chatham, New York
There once was a mill across the river, (the house still has over 300 feet of frontage) Mosher's Mill, which provided sawn lumber, flour and such to the near-by communities. Looking down at the river it's not hard to see why the Mosher family settled here. Aesthetics were as important a couple of hundred years ago as they are today. Look at the detail in the moldings along the roofline, the intricate patterns on the porch, the cut of the stone in the foundation. Beauty found in the details. Come around to the barn, a three story classic, surrounded by dry laid stone walls and gardens. Inside, a modern take on the barn guest house. Opened up to enjoy the beams, an amazing kitchen, a lofted bedroom. The artist in you heads to the studio and the painting, novel, movie that you've always said you were going to create leaps out. To the house. Light fills the mudroom and spills into the sunroom off the back of the house. A cozy little reading room sits off the kitchen, coffee steaming as you skim the news. The AGA stove let's you know that you'll have to do a little better on the omelets this year. Shaker built-in cupboards line the dining room. The fireplace in the den needs lighting. Upstairs the back bedroom has angles that are cool enough to put a smile on a jaded teen. The master and another bedroom both have floor boards that are at least two feet wide. The claw footed tub doesn't have to twist your arm for a soak.
