Equestrian Estate with 8 - Stall Barn, Outdoor Dressage Arena & Access to Trails
Chatham, Columbia County, New York
One of the finest horse properties in all of Columbia County, Valley View Farm is sited on 80 completely private, pastoral acres, with rolling fields, exquisite gardens and picturesque ponds. A gracious, quarter-mile approach through an all?e of trees leads to a whisper quiet sanctuary with sweeping vistas of lush green pastures, and even affording distant views across the Hudson Valley to the Catskills beyond. While the spacious and updated 6,000 square foot home is grand in scale, the well-conceived layout with high ceilings throughout, ample natural light and stunning farm views from most windows lends itself to comfortable everyday living. Highlights of the updated, luxe interior include a professionally-equipped custom kitchen, a stylish dining room with fireplace and equestrian-themed murals, a cozy, paneled family room and a primary en-suite bedroom with spectacular pond views and a chic, updated bath with soaking tub. The home is also ideal for entertaining with a dramatic 40x20 great room with a grand fireplace, a two story coffered ceiling, and outdoor terraces that wrap around all of the home?s principal rooms. Valley View Farm is a special property for equestrians featuring a lovely and well-maintained 8-stall barn with tack room, feed room with laundry, wash stall with heat lamp, and a studio apartment above with full bath. In addition, the property offers a large 5-bay Morton utility barn for storing your horse trailer, tractor, mower, gator, and other equipment, as well as an outdoor dressage ring, six large, grassy paddocks (each with its own run-in shed), and, most importantly, direct access to an extensive network of riding trails through adjacent woods, farm fields and dirt roads that provide near infinite ride-out. Half hour to Hudson, Great Barrington or Albany, and 2 1/2 hours from either NYC or Boston.
