Central AC and Propane Heat, Central Vac and 11-13 ft. ceilings.  Hardwood inlaid floors in the LR/DR, carpet in the Family room and bedrooms.  Large screened porch and a two-story, two-sided fireplace.  There are a redone master bath and 2 walk-in closets in the master bedroom.  A three-car garage is attached to the house.  And a two-car garage in a separate Carriage Barn with space above it that could be used as a studio, office or workout room.  This home could be a weekend retreat or a wonderful full-time abode.  A beautiful home in a beautiful, convenient spot.

What’s the most compelling thing about this property?

The most compelling aspect of this property is the ease of living on a single level on a private 4-acre spot in Alford.  The yearly taxes of under $3000 make this a desirable property, too.  Also, there is a separate barn/studio that can be used for an office, yoga studio, or playroom.

For whom is this house perfect?

This house is perfect for a full-time family or second homeowners.  It has a huge great room as well as a family room, and the outside living is easy and breezy.

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

Within a few minutes of this house is The Guthrie Center for great music, Taft Farms for great farm-fresh produce and Mt. Washington for great views and hiking, as well as Fairview Hospital and the town of Great Barrington.  This location also makes it easy to get to Tanglewood and Stockbridge. And it’s a quick shot to the major Berkshires roads Route 22, Route 23 and the Taconic.

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

This home was built with love by a local builder who used it as his own home and then sold it to the present owners who have shared great memories here with their kids and grandchildren for over 20 years.
