Hancock house description

Call now for great winter rates! Come and enjoy our beautiful mountain retreat - A home for every season. This charming home away from home is a wonderful place for family, friends and romance. Only 2 minutes from Jiminy Peak!! Book now

With over 2200 square feet, this new country home has plenty of space for everyone yet a very cozy feel. Each one of the 3 large bedrooms has walk-in closets and beautiful new funishings. The master suite has a king size bed and matching furniture with a brand-new 32' Samsung LCD HDTV. The attached master bathroom has a huge Jacuzzi tub for two. Step out onto the balcony from the living room for a magnificent open view of the mountains. Enjoy a movie on your 46' Sony HDTV while enjoying the heat from the wood-burning stove. The enclosed basement can be used as a playroom or den or as a closed-off 4th bedroom with a couch that opens up into a queen sized bed. Explore the 16 acres of trails on the property and hike your way to the golf course in the back. If you have kids, there are swings and slides on the property for their enjoyment. There's also an attached 2 car garage so that you can come directly into the warm house after a long day of skiing.

And don't forget that just 2 miles down the road is Jiminy Peak - offering skiing and snowboarding day and night. We are located about 25 minutes from Tanglewood. Or drive ten minutes down the road to the Clark Museum in Williamstown and enjoy some Monet and Renoir. Or fifteen minutes down the other direction to the city of Pittsfield for some wonderful restaurants and shops- as well as a beautiful lake for swimming. And don't forget that we are only 2 hours and 45 minutes from NYC.

                                  Owner info

                                  Year Purchased: 2009

                                  About the owner: An avid hiker and biker, I love the outdoors. I've also been involved in the real estate market for about 20 years in New York City. I'm a single mom and a businesswoman.

                                  Why the Owner Chose Hancock:
                                  I've always loved the Berkshires. Great hiking, biking, skiing....the people are so friendly in this area. When I saw this property, I fell in love with the large bedrooms and walk-in closets. I couldn't believe the size compared to all the other houses I had seen. And the views were amazing...! It's only a short distance from Jiminy Peak, where my daughter takes ski lessons from locals who grew up in the mountains and a short distance from all the culture and activities...Come enjoy my home!

                                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                                  The house is very large and comfortable- as indicated by prior renters. We are so close to everything in the Berkshires- Tanglewood, Shakespeare & Company, Jiminy Peak, Williamstown museums, Mount Greylock for hiking, Lakes for boating and fishing....A great place to come and relax and enjoy everything that the Berkshires has to offer.
