Property description

Enjoy the natural beauty and cultural offerings of the Berkshires from this elegant, relaxing country home -- hang out on the patio listening to the stream below in summer, build a fire inside after skiing in the winter, walk along our beautiful country road and admire the leaves in fall, the flowers in spring. Ideally situated for both privacy and easy access to Great Barrington, Lenox, and Stockbridge, this home features spacious rooms, gracious furnishings and year-round relaxation.

The house has 4 bedrooms and a library (with large-screen HD TV and fold-out couch), on two floors; a large kitchen with separate, light-filled dining area; views out the windows and French Doors to a stream, meadow, trees and mountains. It's ideally situated: minutes from town or attractions (skiing, Tanglewood) but isolated enough to be completely quiet. It's the perfect country getaway!

Keywords: Lovely country house on quiet lane, superb light, spacious meadow views, running brook, gracious furnishings, large kitchen, fireplace, terrace, lawns, large-screen TV, wireless internet, 5 minutes to Catamount, 12 minutes to Butternut ski resorts.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We are a family living in a college town in the northeast -- a doctor and media consultant, with two daughters.

Why the Owner Chose Egremont:
We've visited the Berkshires for more than 15 years, and have always loved its unique combination of natural beauty and cultural sophistication.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love to ski in winter -- cross-country and at either of the nearby resorts -- hike in fall, and read by the fire on chilly nights. In summer we play tennis, cook on the grill and listen to the brook while we catch up on reading.
