Simplicity, tranquility, style ... a Quaker’s Home. The Obediah Wilbur House was built in 1794 in the heart of Old Chatham. The original house and its additions are nestled among rolling lawns and hardy Locust trees, which locals believed to be lightning rods to protect their homes. The 66 acre property has three original cedar barns, three paddocks, a swimmable spring-fed pond with dock, an old apple orchard, a fresh well and many trails to explore.
The farmhouse is both historic and unique offering many unexpected moments .... a twisting staircase, a blue-stone garden room, a small passageway between upstairs bedrooms which will delight the young in all of us. Renovations by the current owners have respected the house’s Quaker roots. With three bedrooms, two baths, formal dining, two parlors, library and a delightful attached wood shed that would make a lovely studio.
The very charming town of Old Chatham is centrally located between Hudson, Albany, Lenox and Great Barrington, Massachusetts approximately 30 minutes from each. Skiing and Tanglewood are close by, not to mention the Shaker Museum and the Old Chatham Quaker Meeting House.
Is it time to bring out your inner Quaker? Then this may be the home for you.
