Secluded Berkshire Estate

Located in the town of Canaan, founded in 1772 as “Kings District”. The name was changed to “Canaan” in 1788. One of the oldest sections of Canaan is Frisbee Street, settled in 1770 by Gideon Frisbee, who emigrated from Canaan, Connecticut.  Frisbee Street fronts what was once the Albany-Boston stagecoach route.

Canaan is 40 minutes from downtown Albany and 15 minutes from Pittsfield Massachusetts. Canaan is bordered by Austerlitz to the south, New Lebanon to the north, Massachusetts to the east, and Chatham to the west.  Canaan NY has a population of less than 1,800 in an area of 36.7 square miles on New York’s border with Massachusetts in northern Columbia County, New York.

Canaan was founded by settlers from Canaan, Connecticut in 1759. Since it lies on the Massachusetts border and is close to Pittsfield, Lenox and Stockbridge, it attracts permanent residents who work in Massachusetts and are attracted by the better real estate values in New York State. Also many of its second home residents take advantage of the Berkshires and the proximity of the Tanglewood Music Festival with the Boston Pops.
