Becket house description

Your very own, completely private and secluded, post-and-beam-style, contemporary, ranch bungalow in Berkshire County is nestled on 4 wooded acres of ash, beech, birch, hemlock, and maple trees with fabulous forest views. You are located off a quiet road, beside two babbling brooks and near pristine Yokum Pond and Buckley Dunton Reservoir in October Mountain State Forest.

Kitchen, dining room, and living room all in an open layout.

* Three bedrooms with spacious closets.
* Two-and-one-half bathrooms, including master bath and second full bath with double sink.
* Sunken living room with fireplace, woodstove, and entertainment center.
* Gourmet kitchen.
* Sunny dining room.
* Large, redwood deck off the dining room with gas barbecue grill.
* Multi-zoned heating.
* Two-car garage.
* Table tennis/Ping pong table.
* Outdoor parking for up to five cars.
* Outdoor hammock.
* Wireless Internet

This bungalow is ideal as a getaway, as a warm home to rest and refuel in front of a fire after snowshoeing or skiing, as a home in which to relax after invigorating outdoor activities, as a retreat setting for contemplation or writing, or as a place to reflect after attending a stimulating Tanglewood concert or dance performance at Jacob’s Pillow or a visit in the surrounding area to other exciting cultural activities.

It's just four hours from Montreal and Burlington; two-and-one-half from New York City and Northern New Jersey; two from Boston, New Haven, and Greenwich; and one from Northampton, Amherst, and Springfield.
