Owner info

Year Purchased: 1960

About the owner: I am an electrical engineer, and my brother is a retired cardiologist. Over the past decades, we both spent many happy days in this house visiting our parents with our children.

Why the Owner Chose Great Barrington:
My parents bought this house in 1960 as a vacation house. My brother and I now use it for vacation rentals as well as our for our own enjoyment.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Tanglewood Music Festival is just 20 minutes north (about 11 miles). For skiing, it's just 2 miles to Butternut, 10 miles to Catamount, 32 miles to Jiminy Peak. For hiking, there are trails everywhere including the Appalachian trail which passes by only 4 miles east of Great Barrington. Swimming and fishing are available at the many nearby lakes. One of our favorite jaunts was the family climb up Monument Mountain at least once during each stay.
