A WRITER’S RETREAT

EAST CHATHAM, NEW YORK

A celebrated writer’s rejuvenating Berkshire retreat stands at the highpoint of a spectacular west-facing slope. The house, designed by a prominent NYC architecture firm, absorbs sweeping views of the Hudson Valley. Paths carved through vibrant acres of managed meadow and mature, mixed woodland, lead to structured spaces built from slabs of Massachusetts Goshen stone. Durable swaths of deer resistant native plants absolutely erupt with color throughout the season. Simple, yet thoughtful detailing sets the tone for a relaxing and inspiring atmosphere, where a creative mind can be set free.
