This house has so many wonderful qualities, it’s hard to pick just one. Its classic yet contemporary style immediately creates a mood of calm and quiet.

Recreational facilities are nearby. Stockbridge, Lenox and Pittsfield are short drives away. All the Berkshire attractions are just minutes away.

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

And finally, it would tell you that it has hosted wonderful family gatherings over the years.
