With quality and detail from an earlier era, this grand estate is a home with a story. Farm house, country manor, B&B, it has been all of them, and now it waits for your ideas for its next chapter. From the wraparound porch to the entry foyer to the spacious public rooms, this home is gracious, open, and filled with light. Set on over 3 acres of lawn and meadow, with a classic New England barn, outbuildings, and views to the Berkshire Hills. Updated mechanicals, modern septic system. Steps to the Arlo Guthrie Center, minutes from the Mahaiwe Theatre and downtown Great Barrington, and convenient to Stockbridge, Tanglewood, and all that the Berkshires have to offer.
What’s the most compelling thing about this property?
From your first steps into the foyer you feel that you are in a gracious home, one with quality and attention to detail from an earlier time. The bright, spacious public rooms were designed with comfort in mind, and the vintage barns provide unlimited possibilities.
For whom is this house perfect?
Large extended family? Entrepreneur with a B&B in mind? Buyers who entertain often? Country Inn? Any of the above.
What’s the most fun thing to do within five miles of this house?
This home is convenient to so much! Great Barrington’s theaters, restaurants, and shops, Monument Mountain hiking, Ski Butternut, the village of Housatonic, and all that Stockbridge and West Stockbridge have to offer.
If this house could talk, what secret would it tell about its history?
This grand old home has stories, from its time as the Coffing-Bostwick House Bed & Breakfast back through many earlier incarnations, but it is guarded with its secrets, and more interested in the stories still to be written by the generations to come.
