Down a tree-lined drive in the deep woods of East Chatham, New York, this shaker-style farmhouse looks every inch the traditional side-hall colonial. In reality, this 1,680-square-foot home was built in 1991. Situated on a private five-acre site surrounded by forest, the house, asking $695,000, has the clean lines, gabled roof, and classic fenestration of a historic country home.

The three-bedroom dwelling has as much charm inside as outside. A light-filled south-facing living room is framed by walls in a tranquil gray.

The first floor also includes a spacious dining room, a newly-added powder room, and plenty of storage.

The renovated kitchen adds modern design to classic simplicity with a bright geometric-tiled floor and hand-painted cabinets in Farrow & Ball’s Charleston Gray. New appliances include an under-island wine fridge.

Upstairs, the gracious primary bedroom is joined by a master bath with a soaking tub and walk-in shower. There are two more bedrooms on this floor, with a full bath for use between them.

Also present: An attached garage and central air. It’s a 2.5-hour drive to New York City, a quick 30 minutes to the nearest Amtrak station–and minutes to skiing in the Berkshires.
