Alford chateau / country house description

Ski season is just around the corner. The Farmers Almanac is predicting another great season. What better way to spend it than in this spacious skier owned, family friendly skier friendly home.

Located just minutes from both Butternut and Catamount mountains. Close enough to come home for lunch. And just 45 minutes from Jimney Peak.

Enjoy a day on the slopes then come home to your warm and welcoming home. Have fun preparing a delicious a meal in the large chefs kitchen. Then retreat to the family room for movies or TV with a warm fire going in the gas fireplace. If you chose some quite time then snuggle up with your favorite book by the fire in the library.

If you are not a skier come and enjoy the beauty of the Berkshires in winter. Plenty of great shopping and restaurants to enjoy in Great Barrington and near by historic towns.
