The farm is located in Columbia County, just outside of Old Chatham which is well known as horse country and is home to the Old Chatham Hunt Club.
Queechy Lake is nearby. This lake is well know for excellent trout fishing. We also have numerous trout streams such as Kinderhook Creek which are stocked annually by New York State's Department of Environmental Conservation.

A restored Ca. 1935 farm house which has much natural wood interior. Wainscoat ceilings and walls, cherry wood walls, red birch and oak hardwood floors. Also, hickory kitchen cabinets. The house is two stories, two bedrooms, one bath with full basement which has a walk out to the back yard. House has a domestic oil hot water heating system, artesian well and septic system. The kitchen, cellar floor and roof have been replaced during the last several years. All mechanicals have been updated and are in good working order.

The land/acreage is pristine, beautiful, unspoiled, very private and proudly presents a 200' seasonal waterfall known as Butternut Falls. There are several miles of age old moss covered stone walls, many overgrown meadows that are home to wonderful black raspberry and blackberry plants which are perfect for making home made jams, jellies and wines.
Beautiful hardwood trees such as red oak, white oak, hickory and cherry and softwoods such as tamarack and pines are abundant on the acreage. There is enough timber and native stone on this property to build your dream home.
There are many walking/riding trails which would be perfect for a potential horse/llama farm.
There is abundant wildlife present, deer, turkeys, quail, phesant, fox, raccoons, coyote and an occasional bear and moose. Great opportunities for hunting, photography, wildlife observation.
This property is subdividable. There could be many homesites with spectacular views, or, if you wanted to keep it all to yourself, you could build your dream home back by the waterfall and use the quaint little old farmhouse for inlaws, cartakers or as a guest house.
