The bedrooms include a huge sky-lighted master bedroom suite upstairs with a king-sized bed and private bathroom; and, two bedrooms downstairs, one with a queen-sized bed, the other with a pair of twin beds. Plenty of dressers, closet space, linen closet and pantry. The driveway is level and has plenty of space for cars and turning around.

But the sun-room is where you will really fall in love with this house!

In the heart of 'The Cultural Berkshires', a mile from downtown Great Barrington, America's #1 Small Town according to the Smithsonian. Conveniently located for shopping and great dining, hiking including the nearby Appalachian Trail, bicycling, skiing at SkiButternut, Catamount and Jiminy Peak. The Berkshires offer year-round outdoor activities, world-class spas including Canyon Ranch in the Berkshires, a myriad yoga centers including Kripalu Yoga and Health Center, an amazing array of farm-to-table and fine dining restaurants, outstanding cultural events year round, all in a casual and laid-back social environment surrounded by the natural beauty of the famous Berkshire Hills. The house is close to Tanglewood, the summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the Berkshire Theater Festival in Stockbridge, Berkshire Bach Society concerts, Jacob's Pillow, and much more. Visit www.berkshires.org for all that the Berkshires have to offer.
