Shun Toll Farm…Rarely does a property come on the market in the Berkshires like this special residence on one of the most beautiful country lanes in the area. Architecturally renovated. Casual, but elegant. 5 Bed/5 Bath/4,757 sq ft.
What’s the most compelling thing about this property?
The buyers of this property will be only the third owners of Shun Toll Farm as it was in the same family from the 1860’s until we purchased it in the 1990’s. In fact, the entire road retains much of the integrity of open space and woodlands from over a hundred years ago.
For whom is this house perfect?
This house is perfect for families…a beautiful property full of room for children and dogs. It is perfect for horse people with its lovely barns and pasture and it was formerly a small horse farm where Morgan horses were raised. It is also perfect for weekenders who want comfortable but elegant spaces, both indoor and out, for entertaining.
What’s the most fun thing to do within five miles of this house?
While Catamount, French Park, Prospect Lake, several wonderful restaurants and even downtown Great Barrington are within 5 miles, the most fun is simply to walk with friends and family on the property or up our quiet dead end street and then sit for a meal on the screened porch while enjoying the changing light and moon rise and the sounds of birds and Spring peepers.
If this house could talk, what secret would it tell about its history?
Everyone who has lived or visited here has been touched by the sense of “peace” and “home” this property conveys.
