Property description

Drive down a country road and enter into a private family sanctuary deep in the midst of the Berkshires. This lovely home is only minutes away from the world renowned cultural hub of the Berkshires. It is a 15 minute drive to Tanglewood, the summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. For theatre: there is a choice of Shakespeare & Company, the Berkshire Theatre Festival and Barrington Stage, all nearby. Try an evening of dance at Jacob's Pillow, where the best dance companies in the world perform. Museums also abound. The Clark and Williams College Art Museum in Williamstown or Edith Wharton's 'Mount' and the galleries and boutiques in Stockbridge, Lenox and Great Barrington are all nearby. And a day trip to Mass Moca is always exciting!

Our home in the Berkshires, just at the Massachusetts/New York line is a peaceful oasis to retreat to after an incredible cultural experience.

Hiking, biking, swimming at our nearby private beach club (on a lake) or just plain lazing on the deck is all one needs to recharge to head back to town. Don't forget historic Saratoga, only an hour's drive with museums and a world famous race track.

There are several incredible spas in the area. Canyon Ranch is available for day treatments, as is the Kripalu Yoga Center, where visiting masters come to teach from all over the world.

Or perhaps you prefer the Berkshires when covered with snow. Great ski slopes are within a 30 minute drive. And there are endless trails to snowshoe. Return to our home and warm yourself by the wood burning fireplace and listen to the silence of the countryside.

Used by our family since 1994, our home in the Berkshires is a comfortable, kick back and relax sort of place. There are plenty of books, lots of music, a fully equipped kitchen for preparing all the delicious produce one can buy at local farmers markets. Sample some of the regional cheeses, sip the local cider and feast on seasonal fruits and vegetables. Leave time for a visit to our many fine restaurants with creative young chefs.

We hope you will enjoy our home as much as we do.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1994

About: With five children our home in the Berkshires was a wonderful retreat where the family could be together without the interruptions of our life in the city. Today it is a gathering spot for not only our children but also their husbands or wives, grandchildren and friends. It has always been a happy home.

Why Canaan:
Living in Boston there are few better vacation destinations that the Berkshires. Our children grew up there exploring the surrounding countryside and we introduced them to all the cultural advantages of the area.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Solitude, country silence, proximity to a buzzy town life and the warmth of a family enjoying each other's company, those are the benefits that we love in our Berkshire home.
