One of the northernmost hamlets in the Ulster County Town of Shandaken, abutting the southern edge of Greene County at Lanesville, Chichester—or Chichesterville, as it was originally known—offers unique real estate and great community. Founded in 1863 as a factory town by the Chichester family for the making of chairs and cradles, their legacy remains. Don’t think big-brick-mill-building-by-the-stream factory town; there’s hardly room for that. Chichester is in a narrow gorge, and the buildings put up were small, wooden and pretty. The factory and village were purchased by another furniture-making clan and thrived until the Depression; in 1939 it was all sold at auction. Many of the original structures exist today, including the 1909 post office building, still the post office today.
Chichester is sited on the Stony Clove Creek in Stony Clove Notch. The hamlet's main road is country perfect. Relatively narrow and windy, with the mountains close on either side, it's romantic! Small roads branch off and climb the hills. They're dotted by a combination of hidden farmhouses and charming cabins. If you're dreaming of a "Catskills Cabin," Chichester is a great place to start.

This is where people come for vacations. This is the great Catskills wilderness you’ve heard about, world-famous for hiking, camping, biking, boating, bird-watching, you name it. It’s just gorgeous! Even simply motoring on Route 214, with the stone-lined creek first on one side, then on another, is enough to blow away the cobwebs. Everywhere you look are lush forests, winding streams, majestic mountains. Living here is a nature-lover’s dream.
In town, in Phoenicia, there's community that's the perfect congenial mix of old and new. Hang out at Brio's; where everyone’s friendly - groups of motorcyclists have made it the Catskill's stop for decades. The post office, theatre, and library are the major community hubs here.
Chichester is just outside the busy little Shandaken hamlet of Phoenicia, so living in Chichester is the best of both worlds; you’ve got entertainment and resources in Phoenicia and pristine, untrammeled nature in Chichester. Surround yourself with forever-wild forests and mountains on a 300-acre Chichester estate with a trout stream running through it: several mountaintops are visible from three Chichester houses that were recently on the market —a ski chalet, manor house and a cottage. Or find a nice piece of Chichester land by a stream and build your own Chichester cabin the way you’ve always dreamed.
