Country Road, take me home to this luxurious 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath Contemporary Cape on 2.4 acres with panoramic views, perennial gardens, stone walls and total privacy, just two miles from the village. First floor master bedroom suite, sunroom, fireplace, fabulous chef’s kitchen and a view from every window. Quality everywhere, from the Tiger Maple staircase to the divided-light windows to raised panels in the dining room to custom moldings.
What’s the most compelling thing about this property?
Quality of materials. This house was built with the utmost attention. Tiger Maple railings on the stairs. True divided light windows. Raised panels in the dining room. Nine-foot solid wood door to the master. Handcrafted shelving and cabinetry surrounding the fireplace. The list goes on and on…
For whom is this house perfect?
Anyone with a love of nature. The gardens, the rolling mountain views, the stone walls and all of it on a quiet country road but just a few minutes drive to the hustle and bustle of downtown Great Barrington and all the shops, restaurants and cultures that abounds there.
What’s the most fun thing to do within five miles of this house?
First you should eat. Cook at home after shopping at Guido’s, the Sheffield Farmers’ market, Mill River Farm or the variety of farm stands. Or eat out at Gedney Farm, Old Inn on the Green, Cantina 229, the Southfield Store or Bash Bish Brew. Then exercise it off with a bike or a hike at Umpachene Falls, Campbell Falls, Dry Hill, 1000 Acre Lake, or Three Mile Pond.
If this house could talk, what secret would it tell about its history?
Everyone has been happy here. But who wouldn’t be, surrounded by the natural beauty of the land and the designed beauty of this home?
