A quaint hamlet in the northern part of the Town of Chatham, between Old Chatham and East Chatham, surrounded by idyllic equestrian country with rushing Kinderhook Creek bisecting it.
The town is comprised of several villages and hamlets including Old Chatham. The most rural and equestrian of all hamlets, it includes The Shaker Museum and Library which exhibits and tells the story of the area’s first inhabitants.
The Village of Chatham is the central community bustling with an eccentric collection of specialty shops, art galleries, cafes and fine restaurants. Malden Bridge and its surrounding countryside captivates with its natural beauty, gently rolling hills and big sky.
Only 4 miles from Malden Bridge are exclusive clubs, like Old Chatham Tennis Club, and Old Chatham Hunt Club. Further details of either available at www.PCPrealty.com/old-chatham/
