                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2009

                              About the owner: Tom & Susan are both workaholics. Tom’s an active scientist and Susan’s a homemaker, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and wonderful ballroom dancer – hence the Ballroom on the top floor. Tom bought the property in 2009 and removed the 1977 modular home that was there. He designed and built what you see today. It's a work in progress and continues to grow. It is a large but simple spacious lived in comfortable country home. The main and top floor have 10 foot ceilings and the Ballroom has a 16 foot high cathedral ceiling. There are wood stoves throughout and free firewood. All kitchens have gas stoves (Tom likes to cook). When the house is done we’ll start on the conversion of the post and beam barn.

                              Why the Owner Chose Hancock:
                              North Hancock is a pristine rural area nestled in the Beautiful Berkshires yet very close to everything – just minutes from Jiminy Peak, Tanglewood, Theaters, Museums, The Mass Pike, The Taconic State Parkway, Colleges, Pittsfield, Albany, etc. It’s 2 ½ hours from Boston and 3 hours from NYC. It is also less than 1 ½ hours from Mt Snow and many other ski resorts.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              Brand New, owner/builder occupied, with panoramic views. Walking distance to Jiminy Peak.
