What’s the most compelling thing about this property?
The natural light in this spacious 9000 square foot house is stunning. And so is the way the rooms flow so comfortably together. The open-plan kitchen, family room with fireplace and dining area all work together to walk you right into the large formal dining room where many a holiday party has taken place. There are three staircases that lead you upstairs to 6 spacious bedrooms and baths and a Game Room with bathroom and deck.
For whom is this house perfect?
This house makes a perfect home for anyone, but it is also wonderfully suited for a professional or business person who wants to run a business from this home. If you are an interior designer, CPA, healing arts professional, lawyer, realtor or therapist, the Game Room on the second floor has its own entrance separate from the main part of house. And perhaps the aquatic areobics in the inground gunite pool would provide the opportunity for seasonal aquatic aerobics.
What’s the fun thing to do within five miles of this house?
The center of Great Barrington, with shopping, theater, restaurants and street life, is just a three-minute drive (or a lovely walk) from this gracious stately house. Or take a right out of the driveway and head to South Egremont for great hiking trails with outstanding views. This house is close to all the Berkshire attractions, including Butternut and Catamount for skiing and outdoor activities year-round.
If this house could talk, what secret would it tell about its history?
This house was built in 1930, and would tell you about all the loving owners who have taken such good care of it. And it certainly would tell you about the most recent owners, who gave large holiday parties and dinners to which everyone in town was invited. This house is proud to be a place for joyful celebrations with family and friends in any season or all year long.
