About the Property
Chateau / Country House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6-8)
We fell in love with this small, charming upstate hamlet 20 years ago. For a year, four of us looked for land outside New York City, wandering through all the counties looking for the elusive magic of a country home. We found those qualities in a tiny town of Cornwallville, in the Durham valley. We bought a house that is even more than we'd hoped.
When the house next door became free, we bought that too. Our rental house was a parsonage once. It's strong and practical, and we filled it with books and dishes and quickly made it a home. It's a perfect place for a weekend, a week, a summer.

Year Purchased: 2000
About the owner: Three of us own this house together: writer, filmmaker, gardner. We bought the house 28 years ago, on one of the most beautiful days any of us can remember.
Why the Owner Chose Cornwallville, NY, USA:
We looked for a year at houses in New York State, in counties that were less than 3 hours from New York City. Our idea was that we wanted a place to escape, to retreat, to plant vegetables and flowers, to read and talk and walk and hike, and to invite as many people as we could to come and eat with us.
The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
Oddly enough, New York State (many regions, not only ours) is astonishingly and unexpectedly beautiful. We have a porch, a light yellow porch, overlooking a long green field. That porch has been the inspiration for poem after poem (after poem).

Our house looks like a Horton Foote film, where life was lived in an interesting
When the weather is even vaguely good, we sit outside
We cook all the time, and invite many guests
All four bedrooms are newly painted with wierdly named colors like Algerian dust
We own thirty acres (a minor miracle - we all live in tiny apartments) facing on
The inside is comfortable, funky, and light. There are many places to read
Our rooms are warm and evocative, more flea market than zen chalet
What's most wonderful are the hills and the sky right there in front of you
