Property description

Surround yourself in nature and relax with an abundance of fresh air - two screened decks, one open deck, and a four season sun room equipped with a 50 Inch Smart TV and a gas wood stove in the winter. Ceiling fans in all rooms, ( air conditioning for the occasional heat wave), open kitchen, dining, and living room with piano under a cathedral ceiling. Fully equipped modern kitchen includes granite counters with island and breakfast bar, stainless steel appliances, and a screened in breakfast deck. Dining room table has two additional leaves for extra guests. Surrounding Maple trees keep the air fresh and make the need for curtains minimal. Oak and bamboo floors, organic spices, teas, condiments, organic cleaning supplies, recycling center, kitchen and shower filters, and an organic veggie garden all contribute to keeping everyone clean, green, and healthy!

Kid and pet friendly, amenities include outdoor basketball hoop, playhouse, swing and large sandbox, as well as backyard with lots of trees and fort opportunities. Back deck includes medium doggie door, and a gate to keep children and pets safe. Walk down the street to the playground, lighted tennis courts and playing fields, or explore 'Peter's Cave' and bring the dog. A short stroll brings you to beautiful downtown Lee with its newly renovated Main Street, art gallery and a mandatory stop at Lucky's Ice Cream Shoppe.

The main floor of the house is upstairs and includes 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. The master bedroom has a private bathroom with shower, a king size Tempurpedic mattress with organic linens and a screened in deck facing a quiet, wooded back yard. The second bedroom consists of a queen size bed with bookcases, TV, and plenty of games to keep everyone occupied all night! Across the hall is the second bathroom with shower and a jacuzzi bathtub. The third bedroom has the option of a single bed, a single bed and a crib, two single beds, or a king size bed, and a TV. The sun room has a comfortable queen sized sofa bed, a gas wood stove, a 50 inch Smart TV with DVD player, and a large deck off the back. Downstairs consists of a fully stocked laundry room, a garage, and a separate apartment where a happy retired geezer and his wife, (whoops, that's us!) occasionally reside when not traveling the world. We are committed to insuring that you experience an amazing trip to the Berkshires, while respecting your privacy at all times!

Don't forget there is plenty of action in the winter with 4 ski resorts in the area! Bousquet Mountain and Butternut Ski Resorts are less than twenty minutes away and sledding is a short walk away.
