Monterey house description

This is a beautiful modern home with three sliding glass doors on the main floor so you feel as if you are outdoors. There is an open kitchen, dining and living area with cathedral ceilings, a master bedroom (Queen bed) suite/2 room bath and washer/dryer all on the first floor.

There is a gas stove on a brick hearth, tile floors and carpeting. Up the spiral staircase, there is a large bedroom (Queen bed) with four skylights, so you can see the stars and moon; and another bedroom with a cathedral ceiling and twin beds. There is also a full bath on the second floor. The house is beautifully decorated with American and English antiques.

This is a perfect summer house, located nine miles east of Great Barrington. The house is a mile from the most pristine lake in the Berkshires, Lake Garfield, which has a sand beach and lifeguard in July and August. This home is 15 minutes to Lenox (Tanglewood, Berkshire Theatre Festival, Jacob's Pillow) and many other cultural and children's activities. There is peace, quiet and beauty in this four acre property. There is satellite for TV and high speed internet connections.

              Monterey is a bucolic hamlet of 1000 residents. It is heavily wooded, has two lakes and many trails. Close to many of the most popular cultural activities of the Berkshires, but quiet and very serenely beautiful. In addition to a goat farm, the town has a library, church, a General Store,

              and parks, as well as a restored home from the 1700s, Bidwell House. Lenox, home of Tanglewood, and Stockbridge are 15 minutes away. Butternut for skiing is six miles away. Monterey is home to many community activities, including Lake Fest and the annual Steak Roast. It is also the home of Gould Farm, a therapeutic community that is over 100 years old, with a wonderful Roadside Store (breakfast/lunch) and a bakery.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1987

              About the owner: We are devoted Berkshire Hills lovers, and have been coming to this area for over 30 years. The landscape, the cultural activities and the tranquility are a great pull for us to relax and enjoy socializing.

              Why the Owner Chose Monterey:
              Monterey is a special hamlet, very rural and pristine. Two lakes are clean and beckoning in the summer. Butternut, a beautifully groomed ski mountain, is only six miles away for family fun in the winter. Fall is amazing with the foliage. The house, on four acres, is a beautiful contemporary home that brings the outdoors in and makes relaxing easy!

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The wooded lot, the skylights, the antique furnishings, the ease of living make this house perfect for a vacation. High speed internet enables you to stay in touch if need be. The spiral staircase, the propane stove all add charm. And the quiet cannot be beat!
