In 1826, the Thorne brothers headed north from New York City with their families for the prospect of relaxed living close to nature in the Hudson Valley. Just two other families have resided at "Thornefields" since then, surrounded in 37 acres of perennial gardens, vegetable beds, rolling meadows and distant Catskills views. The main residence boasts all the draws of a North Country farmhouse, updated with amenities like a media room with full bath and adjacent sunroom. A lower level adds a pool side guest room and lounge, opening outward to a sparkling pool. Two fully-wired office suites occupy the property's restored 19th century post-and-beam barn, facilitating remove work space or a launchpad for fledgling agri-ventures—the trend around Columbia County these days. Large lawns, footpaths and a large deck makes summertime living easy outside or in. Old Chatham hamlet and its landmark country store are just a drive away, with the Taconic Parkway and Amtrak (Hudson) facilitating travel to and from Manhattan.
