JUST LISTED! FIRST TIME EVER ON THE MARKET. The ideal blend of a beautifully maintained 2,300+ sf open concept home less than 25 years old with a barn, pond, 17 acres surrounded on 3 sides by Berkshire Natural Resources Conservation Land, and lush mature landscaping with majestic trees and easy to maintain perennial gardens. Four bedrooms, 2 ½ baths, first floor master with ensuite bath and walk-in closet, and excellent light and flow.
What’s the most compelling thing about this property?
It combines the very best of old and new. The home was built in the 90’s after the colonial farmhouse burned down. So you have all one could hope for in a perfect country home with modern amenities such as a Great Room, first floor master, and oversized attached two-car garage, generator, central a/c and much more on a stunningly beautiful large parcel of land. 17 acres with sugar maples and oaks hundreds of years old, a lovely pond, and a colonial barn.
For whom is this house perfect?
Those who want an easy-to-maintain escape in the country. This is the rare property that bridges any divide between a full-time or part-time home. You have ample space, a beautiful home, central air for the summer, a fireplace for the winter, all at an amazingly affordable price… and for part time residents this is everything living in the city is not. This is the best of the Berkshires at an affordable price for everyone.
What’s the most fun thing to do within five miles of this house?
Bike the country roads, hike the huge swath of protected land and state forest, swim and kayak in nearby lakes, join the locals at the Arts Center, eat in Great Barrington or better yet at Cantina 229, Gedney Farm or the Old Inn in New Marlboro, or starting next spring at Monterey General…. Or simply garden (or even farm), relax, read, be with family and friends and soak in the serenity and beautiful vistas from every room in the home.
If this house could talk, what secret would it tell about its history?
While the house is relatively new, the property has a heritage that is abundantly evident, from the colonial barn and stone walls, to the majestic trees, and it is located on what just might be the most perfect country lane in the Berkshires.
