Great Barrington Property Overlooking Hundreds of Acres of Conserved Land

This LEED certified home, offered by Martha Piper of William Pitt Sotheby's International, protects the environment while looking out over thousands of acres of protected land!

Views over thousands of acres of protected farm land. Cutting edge technology in a traditional style in this LEED rated home. Views of rolling hills with sheep and backed by mountains. Careful thought was given to every aspect of conservation of power and materials in this lovely bucolic setting. Gorgeous gardens and old growth trees enrich the property. The large windows and doors of the public rooms bring the views front and center. The living room, dining room and master bedroom all open onto a wide stone patio. The second floor has a second sitting room opening onto a veranda with a gas fireplace. Five bedrooms, four and a half baths including the garage apartment. Geothermal and solar power. Separate barn and picturesque garden shed. All moments from Great Barrington.

What’s the most compelling thing about this property?

Beautiful views over pristine protected pasture land but just minutes from downtown Great Barrington.

For whom is this house perfect?

Almost anyone, but it would particularly appeal to the ecologically conscious – LEED rated – built with conservation in mind at every single step. Geothermal – solar- reclaimed materials – construction methods.

What’s the most fun thing to do within five miles of this house?

Theater, music, hiking, shopping, and lazing in the Green River.

If this house could talk, what secret would it tell about its history?

While the house is recent – it’s built on the site of a 1700s homestead- all the history of American New England passed by its front door. Picture General Knox and the cannons rolling by.
