What’s the most compelling thing about this property?
The land. The meadows, woods and views are gorgeous. There is the land where the home, horse barn, swimming pool and regulation baseball field are sited. There is the adjacent lot suitable for building another home. And there is the shared parcel of conservation land abutting Pittsfield State Forest that gives only three property owners access to miles and miles of trails suitable for horseback riding, hiking, and riding ATVs.
For whom is this house perfect?
The equestrian, the antique car collector and anyone who enjoys the great outdoors will find this to be the perfect spot. The spacious, 5,500+/- square feet of living space offers great flexibility for a wide variety of needs. Or, an investor would find this the perfect spot to create a luxury Airbnb experience in the heart of the Berkshires.
What’s the most fun thing to do within five miles of this house?
Boating, fishing and swimming at nearby Onota Lake; hiking, biking and snowmobiling the many trails in the beautiful Pittsfield State Forest; downhill skiing at Jiminy Peak and enjoying the culinary and cultural offerings in downtown Pittsfield.
If this house could talk, what secret would it tell about its history?
For a time, horses roamed these fields. In the early 2000s the modest home was transformed into the upscale rustic contemporary that now graces the landscape. Many thoughtful updates have been made by current and previous owners. The walls echo a calmness and serenity that comes from the great care that has been taken here.
