The house is pretty secluded from neighbors, but the Freight train track is across from the house. The windows (triple pane with krypton) cut down noise from the train, but you can still hear it. The traffic from the train is not high ( about 2 to 3 a day) but you know when they are going by.
There is ample parking space on the property (at least 4 on the driveway with a clear path).The Amtrak train station in Greenfield is about 15 minutes from the house. Enterprise car rental and taxi services are also located in Greenfield. Peterpan offers bus services from Greenfield to various locations.

Deerfield and Amherst are 25 and 35 minutes away. There are several restaurants only 5 minutes from the house including The French King Entertainment Center( bowling alley/arcade).
