Historic 1790 Colonial with 3-Car Garage

Check out this much-loved colonial home, zoned and well located for either residential or business, offered by Marnie Garzone and Natalie Rose of TKG Real Estate.

First time offered in over 80 years! This well-loved and maintained 1790’s Colonial was home to a prominent family and is now ready for its next chapter. Perched above Pontoosuc Lake, just on the border of Pittsfield and Lanesborough, with a large private yard, and a 3-car garage. The charming and spacious home features 5 bedrooms, 2 full baths, and a separate income-generating apartment with one bedroom and bath. Zoned multi-use, this is also a great location for a business, with high visibility from Route 7. Minutes from downtown Pittsfield, 15 minutes to Jiminy Peak. Enjoy country living with the comforts of shopping and dining nearby. We are delighted to show you this lovely piece of Berkshire history!

What’s the most compelling thing about this property?

This home is rooted in Berkshire history.  Originally built in 1790, this charming Colonial sits proudly over Pontusooc Lake, first discovered by the local indigenous tribe, the Mohicans.  It was surrounded by farmland back then, while today it enjoys  both residential and commercial zoning.  The home has been in the same local family for 80 years!

For whom is this house perfect?

With 5 beds and 3 baths, this home can accommodate a large family, or it could house a business that can take advantage of the close proximity of Route 7, or both!  It has an acre of land, so plenty of room for gardens, a pool, or parking.   It also has a separate apartment for additional income or in-laws.

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

Pontoosuc lake is right across the street, with swimming, boating, and dining.  North Street, Pittsfield is just 5 minutes away. It is an easy drive to Williamstown as well as Lenox and Tanglewood.

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

We have heard many stories from the family (6 children) who grew up in this house.  It was filled with laughter and pranks, with lots of nooks and crannies for hide and seek.  It was, and is, well-loved to this day.
