Owner info

Year Purchased: 1935

About the owner: The Red House is part of our 4 acre family compound on Lake Buel. Our family has owned this property since 1935. Generations of children have had their whole life defined by our Summers at the lake. This house is one of four on the property. The other three are occupied by the extended family members.

Why the Owner Chose Great Barrington:
The Red House has one floor with ground level access. So it is great for elderly or families with children. Conveniently located, one of the best views on Lake Buel. The screened in porch is wonderful. And the great room with the moosehead over the fireplace is just what you want in a cottage.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
You are right on the lake, beautiful screened in porch, one floor, no stairs in or out. Parking is on the same level as the house.
