Pittsfield house description

House is a very private, quiet, located on 4 acres of land. Back yard is peaceful and overlooks a couple of ponds. We are coming into the Fall & Winter season. The back
yard will be fun with the patio overlooking the ponds The ponds and trees in the backyard will be bursting with Color. You can have a campfire in the pit and watch the pond fountain t light up for a relaxing evening. It is pretty good fishing in the first pond..has pumpkinseed,bluegill and some trout. The side porch is warm as toast in the morning & great for early morning coffee.... overlooks the backyard ...maybe you will see some wildlife. The interior of the house is in excellent condition with the kitchen and bathroom completely renovated. All of the rooms have been freshly painted and/ or wallpapered; the hardwood floors were professionally sanded and varnished. We just built a new outdoor hot & cold water shower that is both private & relaxing. The property has a setting of peace and tranquility. Location is convienent to Lenox, Lee,Dalton, Williamstown, North Adams & Stockbridge and West Stockbridge. Although, it is located near local farms, it is only 5 minutes from downtown Pittsfield, Onota and Pontoosuc lake, Hancock Shaker Village, Pittsfield State Forest and the Berkshire Theatre & Colonial Theatre. Tanglewood is about 10 miles away and there are many other cultural attractions nearby, such as Shakespeare & Company, Norman Rockwell Museum, Golf Courses , Barrington Stage Company, Botanical Gardens, Mt. Greylock Reservation and the Clark Museum.. For the skier's Bousquet Ski Resort can be seen from the front yard and is about 5 minutes away. Jimney Peak Ski Resort is located in Hancock and is about 20 minutes away.
Also, Berkshire County is noted for its many Fine Restaurants and most are within a 10 minute drive..

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About the owner: My wife ( Nurse) and I ( Retired Civil Engineer) bought this property in October of 2012. We spent all winter completely renovating the house and property. We put in a new gas furnace ( Baseboard Hot Water) and completely renovated the electrical system including a brand new service and meter box. The whole inside and outside of the house has been renovated. Also, we live about 5 minutes away and if anything goes wrong , just give us a call and it will be rectified in a quick manner.

                  Why the Owner Chose Pittsfield:
                  We have lived in Pittsfield for our whole lives and when this property came up for sale , we decided to buy it because of its location , ponds, privacy, and peacefulness . Also, the weeks it is not rented , we want to use it ourselves and get some of that relaxing atmosphere that it radiants

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Privacy and scenic views for all seasons..this is a hidden treasure in a beautiful neighborhood in the Berkshires. The house is warm and inviting all year round.
