What’s the most compelling thing about this property?
The sense of quality and comfort you feel when you walk through the front door draws you into the spacious living room and to the oversized windows that bring the outdoors in. In spring, summer, and fall, the wonderful screened porch will become your main living area, where you will hear an occasional big horned owl and watch the native wildlife explore the woods.
For whom is this house perfect?
This is an ideal floor plan for those desiring one-level living but who also want their friends and family to have comfortable accommodations with their own sense of privacy in the lower recreation area.
What’s the most fun thing to do within five miles of this house?
Premier location with so many things within 5 miles: The Mahaiwe Theater, Butternut skiing, huge number of top-notch Great Barrington restaurants, local Farmers Market plus Taft Farms, Berkshire Mountain Bakery, Yoga GB, Berkshire South Community Center, Bard College at Simon’s Rock, Rudolph Steiner School, Guido’s, the Guthrie Center, Wyantenuck Country Club and the BEST THING is that it is a 2.2-mile walk to The Triplex!
If this house could talk, what secret would it tell about its history?
There are no secrets in this house, only joyous times and enjoyment through the years by family and friends. There is no limit to how many guests you could host here for a holiday party. Thanksgiving celebrated in this house is the best. The current owners renovated with an eye towards entertaining and family gatherings.
