More Info
By Friday, Sep 1 More In Real Estate

Seasonal cottage on nearly 5 acres nicely sited back from the road. Large side yard. Seasonal stream. Two bedrooms. One bath. Just down the road from the Monterey General Store and a sandy beach on Lake Garfield. Less than 15 minutes to Main Street, Great Barrington.

What’s the most compelling thing about this property?

This cozy house is tucked away in a beautiful private spot with no visible neighbors. The quiet and the beauty of the land make it feel like an enchanted cottage.

For whom is this house perfect?

With two bedrooms, this house would be perfect for a single person, a couple or even a small family. The simplicity of the house makes it extremely easy to care for, so it’s perfect for anyone who wants to get away from it all, without having to spend the weekend taking care of the house.

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

Who needs a pool when you can swim from the sandy beach at Lake Garfield just down the road? Also close by is the charming Monterey General Store where you can meet friends and neighbors or just relax over coffee with the morning paper. And if you want more action – restaurants, shopping, movies, ice cream, pizza, performing arts — the center of Great Barrington is just 10 minutes away.

If you were the buyer of this house, what would you do to make it your own?

We can envision this house painted all white inside with new reclaimed wood floors, either pine or oak.   Red outside and white inside could be magical. Other colors would also work.
