Monterey/Otis border – Private setting – Plenty of room for family, friends and entertaining

The perfect home for friends and family to gather, and to use as a convenient base for exploring the Berkshires is our Property of the Week.

Beautifully designed shingle style home. Well laid out for large gatherings. Open kitchen/dining. Living room with stacked stone fireplace. Family room with outdoor access. Enclosed screened porch. 1st floor master suite with balcony deck. AC. High ceilings. Fire pit in back yard. Privately set with woodland views. Great location.


What’s the most compelling thing about this property?

The location is super.  So much to do within just a few miles!  In 4 miles you are at the boat launch on Lake Garfield.  9 miles gets you to Otis Reservoir and Ski Butternut.  Shopping, dinner, movies and shows in Great Barrington are within 12 miles.  And it is just 10 miles south of Exit 2 on the Turnpike (outlet mall).

Who is this house perfect for?

This house is perfect for anyone who wants plenty of room for guests and yet a couple can feel very comfortable living in this beautiful home by themselves.  When family and friends arrive, there is room for everyone.  The open kitchen/dining area is great for group cooking and conversation while preparing meals.  The screened-in porch, accessed from both the kitchen and living room, has glass inserts to extend the porch use into the colder months. The stone-faced fireplace is perfect for cozy evenings.  The spacious bedrooms and family room in the walk-out lower level are ready to take on all your guests.

What is striking about this house?

Although it was built in 2005, it has that classic Berkshire cottage look with natural cedar shingles, dark green trim and stone faced foundation.  You certainly feel you are in the Berkshires.

If this house could talk, what secret would it tell about its history?

It might tell you the secrets all the cousins have told and giggled about from their bunk beds while the grown-ups wind down the day out by the fire pit.  It might even tell you what the grown-ups discussed out of range of the little ears!
