          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 1965

          About the owner: I am a potter who loves to get my hands in clay. Hands in dirt is not a bad thing either, as I love to garden ,as well. I have a large vegetable garden and perennial gardens all around the property. If you are here in season, you may be able to partake of my garden vegetables and/or flowers to decorate the farmhouse. I also love to hike the trails right out the door- Up the mountains, and down to the river. These are a few of my favorite things! I hope that you can come and enjoy them too.

          Why the Owner Chose West Stockbridge:
          This Farmhouse has been in the family for nearly 50 years. We have developed the land and buildings and have enjoyed its solemnity and tranquility.

          The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
          The farmhouse is just 2 miles from downtown West Stockbridge where shopping necessities, galleries, restaurants, playgrounds, tennis, and swimming are all available. It is within 10 minutes from Tanglewood, theatres, movies, museums and other cultural activities, as well as ski resorts. And yet a lovely place to just sit and contemplate on the screened in porch overlooking the fields, gardens, stream and wooded mountains.
