Property description

Spend part of August in our beautiful, meticulously updated 1820's colonial farmhouse. With 3 bedrooms (2 upstairs, 1 downstairs), 4.5 baths, a gorgeous eat-in chef's kitchen adjacent to a lovely screened-in porch, you may never want to leave the house. If you decide to go out, you can enjoy our 15 acres, heated swimming pool, mountain views, and the green river (good for fly fishing) that runs through the property. There is also a finished basement that sleeps 4 with a large flat-screen tv and ping pong table. Totally renovated, the house combines vintage charm with modern conveniences such as central air.

The house is located in the heart of the Berkshires, a short (under 10 minutes) ride to Great Barrington, named the best small town in America by Smithsonian Magazine for its charm, the beauty of its setting, interesting restaurants and stores, and commitment to the eat-local movement. The house is 20 minutes from Tanglewood, close to several well-respected summer stock programs, Shakespeare and Company and Jacob's Pillow dance festival.

Bike or hike from the front door, play tennis at the local park, canoe or kayak at nearby Prospect Lake or just lounge by the pool.

No groups, please, and no inquiries for less than one week.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: My husband and I live on the Upper West Side in New York City. We love the city, but think of our Berkshires home as a little paradise. It's beautiful, the cultural life in the area is exciting, there is an endless variety of outside activities, the restaurants are excellent, and the stores (both antique shops and stores selling contemporary merchandise) carry interesting and unique items.

Why the Owner Chose Egremont:
We think our home is ideal as it combines the beauty of a 200-year-old colonial farmhouse with all the conveniences of a modern home. It is beautifully situated at the top of a hill, with views of mountains and a large meadow that leads to the Green River. The river is beautiful and peaceful. We like to sit on the banks and on hot days dunk ourselves in it.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
We fell in love with the house because it is a great place to get away from it all while still being close to the amenities of Great Barrington and the rest of the Berkshires. We've spent many wonderful hours sitting by our heated swimming pool, which is completely private and has fabulous views of the surrounding mountains.
