What’s the most compelling thing about this property?
The house was totally updated in 2016, including the roof, and with a brand new Buderus heat system in 2020! The house, with 20 feet of direct access to Lake Buel, is move-in ready which, in today’s market with contractors booked out for months and sometimes years, is like gold. It is light, bright, spotlessly clean, perfectly maintained and offered furnished! The dock is included with a sale but buyers will need to do their own permitting.
For whom is this house perfect?
This home is perfect for anyone who wants to enjoy lake life in the Berkshires
What’s the fun thing to do within five miles of this house?
Ski Butternut is less than five miles away, the Appalachian Trail is very close by, and you are just 10 minutes to the center of Great Barrington and all that it has to offer…but honestly you may never want to leave this gorgeous house and location.
If this house could talk, what secret would it tell about its history?
Built in 1940, this beautifully well made home would tell you it has been loved by many generations. One fun fact is that the old brick heating system – fired by wood or coal – is still visible in the basement. When you think about how hard it was for the owners to manually heat this home “back in the day,” you know how much they loved being there. Today, it is super easy with your HE propane boiler and on-demand water heater.
