Monterey Contemporary with sweeping views of Lake Garfield

Come for the view; stay for the beauty and quality of the house, offered by Cortney Dupont of Cohen+White Associates.

This house….this VIEW! Let’s start there; a tri-state view in one long glorious glance, with rolling, verdant Berkshire valleys surrounding sparkling Lake Garfield in the foreground with the Litchfield Hills of Connecticut framing one side and the distant, dreaming ridgeline of the Catskill Mountains….it’s a view everyone remembers. It’s a house built for welcome; grand windows embrace the pristine light, spilling it inward along shining Washington State Pine floors and filling every corner with the day’s progression from fabulous sunrise through even-more-fabulous sunset. With its open, generous, modern lines, it’s a house built to understand beauty; the breathtaking picture windows of the grand hall, which beckon the eye toward the unbroken majesty of lake, forest, and peaceful mountains beyond, give way easily to the cozy pleasures of a warm and welcoming kitchen, a restful den, a spacious screened porch for the long summer days, and two handcrafted Monterey Masonry fireplaces to warm your return home on crisp winter nights.

What’s the most compelling thing about this property?

The VIEW!!  The sweeping panoramic view over beautiful Lake Garfield to the mountain ranges beyond from most every window captures the best of any Berkshire vista you can imagine in all seasons ending with spectacular sunsets!

For whom is this house perfect?

This house is perfect for both the person who loves quiet and being surrounded by nature and the person who loves sharing this treasure.  The house and studio beckon entertaining with spacious open common areas on multi levels, all with direct access to a screened porch and fabulous outdoor decking overlooking the view!

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

Surrounded by hundreds of acres of hiking trails, you only need to walk out the front door or take a quick drive down the country lane to Lake Garfield beach to take a swim or launch your kayak or boat. If you’re looking for a nice blend of art and history, take a quick drive to the Bidwell House Museum where you will feel like you’ve stepped back in time and where, surrounded by 192 acres of fields and forest, you can learn about life in the 1700s. Then, you could end your day with a hike through Beartown State Forest with over 10,000 acres to explore.

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

This house would tell you about the many special gatherings it hosted over the years, where the guest list included artists, professional athletes, musicians and dancers.
