Modern Berkshire Living in Williamstown

Sarah Haskins of Streamline Communities offers a sleek new top-floor residence in a great location with views.

What once was old is renewed again at Cable Mills – a working factory for over 100 years located on the Green River and the former economic hub of Williamstown – is today a vibrant community and hub for modern living, with 61 unique homes deeply rooted in history and nature at the cultural epicenter of Western Massachusetts.

Each home features tall ceilings, massive windows, and exposed brick and beam construction with stunning views of the river and mountains.

What’s the most compelling thing about this property?

Home 411 at Cable Mills is located on the top floor with amazing views over town and the mountains beyond. The spacious main living area showcases exposed brick on the exterior wall and open concept kitchen allowing many living configurations. The bedroom boasts oversized bright sunny windows; open them up for an amazing breeze. Cable Mills residential community has an emphasis on unique design, quality construction, green living, beautiful landscaping, stylish interior finishes, and exceptional management. There is something for everyone.

For whom is this house perfect?

Cable Mills has undergone a dramatic transformation from its past as a factory making wire and cable dating back to the post-Civil War era. Keeping true to its original form, the homes at Cable Mills showcase the historic mill roots of the buildings with architecturally exposed brick, steel, and timber throughout. Most homes have 12- to 16-foot Douglas Fir ceilings, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances with gas-fired ranges, generous closets, and in-home laundry and timber throughout. In addition, many homes have sweeping views of the Green River, Berkshire Mountains, and Williamstown.

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

The historic Cable Mills community sits on 3 acres and offers a tranquil respite in the heart of Williamstown and the Berkshires along the Green River. Cable Mills residents have access to the shared Outdoor Living Room with a fire pit, grills, and seating, and the River walk pathway along the Green River.



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

Cable Mills homes are approximately half a mile to shopping, dining, Williams College and one of the top collegiate golf courses—Taconic Golf Club—and in close proximity to skiing, hiking, rafting, museums and all the Berkshires has to offer. It’s hard to pick one thing to do with The Clark, the Williams College Museum of Art, Williamstown Theatre Festival and MASS MoCA almost at your doorstep, not to mention the weekend farmers market for local produce and offerings.
