Welcome to our home. When we first laid eyes on this rambling, utterly charming Farmhouse (originally built in 1820) we were smitten immediately. Set on 12 acres on a dirt road, and surrounded by 500 acres of Conservancy land, you are very much in the country and able to completely relax. But you’re not too far from anything: 10 minutes to Chatham, 30 minutes to Great Barrington, 25 minutes to Tanglewood and Kripalu, 45 minutes from Saratoga and Williamstown. If nature’s your thing, just walk outside: hiking trails abound right from our front door, as do winter snowshoeing and cross country skiing opportunities. The swimming pond and more hiking trails are just up the road. Our streams lend a beautiful peaceful sound to the air, our patio is a great outdoor dining and lounging area and our back hill is the perfect picnic spot.
Inside the house, you will be surrounded by comfort, history and art. The huge country kitchen is a natural gathering spot, and in winter the wood stove makes it super cozy. It is a serious cook's kitchen, so you will have every implement you could need as well as a well-stocked pantry. The dining room is full of art. The den is equally sprawling, with huge leather sofa that’s great for reading or watching TV, playing games (we have so many) or enjoying the fire in the fireplace. There is a gorgeous marble tiled full bath on the main floor.
The 3 bedrooms upstairs sleep 7, with a full bath between them. Beadboard ceilings and antique beds add to the farmhouse feel. The downstairs, with its entrance to the garden, we call the “bunkroom.” It sleeps 6 and has a beautiful slate bath, Foosball table and wood stove.
Enjoy a meal out on the back patio, or lounge in the comfy chaises on the lawn. We guarantee folks will be fighting over the hammock strung between 2 trees right up from the stream.+ More
