Great Barrington house description

Farm house in town but has a secluded feeling, with lovely lawns and gardens, (knob hill) 'on the hill' in Great Barrington, which was just listed as no. 1 as the best little town in America by Smithsonian Magazine. Easy walk to center of town, walkable to Lake Mansfield for swimming, and short walk to saturday morning farmers market. The house has rustic artistic decorations, but with all the modern amenities: washer dryer, dishwasher, wi fi, cable and air conditioning. Four bedrooms, plus laundry room which can sleep one more, two porches (futon sofas on porches). New barbecure grill, lovely flower garden facing big porch. There is a second building (renovated small barn still a little rough) which can be used for an office, though has some of our storage) or an emergency guest room or playroom (during warm weather). SO good for family reunions though not overwhelming for two. Not a huge house but can sleep multitudes.


Family and pet friendly. Also close to two ski areas, Butternut and Catamount, one right in town.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1973

                  Why the Owner Chose Great Barrington:
                  after spending the summer working in Stockbridge ,we decided when we had the down payment we would buy something. seven years later we did it. This was one of two properties we looked at on a saturday afternoon. it was love at first sight.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  in town but secluded feeling and quiet. can walk to town and to the beach. since we got house town has super come up from a working town to a resort town, where there once were six hardware stores, there are now six sushi bars,great dining and shopping,even galleries and three movies sometimes four
