What’s the most compelling thing about this property?
Two things are compelling about this house: Its easy-walk-to-town location and its meticulous, authentic Victorian restoration.
Who is this house perfect for?
It is ideal either for a lively young family, or for owners who love to entertain graciously and to provide their guests with the diversity of Berkshire recreation and culture, all nearby and easily accessible.
What’s the most fun thing to do within five miles of this house?
Walk to the beach for a splash on hot summer days; walk to the Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center for the best in music and entertainment; walk to the Triplex Cinema for movies; walk to a variety of yummy restaurants; and, for kids and grandkids, the thrill of playing explorer on the woodsy hill behind the house and barn.
If this house could talk, what secret would it tell about its history?
The home and barn, in the same family until 1990 when the current owners bought it, was originally built around 1900 as a livery stable. Folks coming to Great Barrington from far and near disembarked at the nearby railroad station and took the short walk uphill to 34 Castle Hill Ave, where they’d rent a horse and buggy for local touring.
