Car: Necessary

The Berkshires has been referred to as the new Hamptons. The important difference is that you won't have to battle the traffic to or from the house. Though Jiminy Peak Mountain Resort, is mainly known for it's skiing, the Berkshires has all-season activities and is also a year-round cultural center. We are close to Williamstown with it's beautiful college setting and the Clarke Art Institute. Drive 5 minutes further to North Adams where Mass Moca (Museum of Contemporary Art) sits in a beautifully restored 19th century mill. Drive up to Manchester, Vt. for outlet shopping. Head in the opposite direction and visit Lenox, summer home of the Boston Symphony at Tanglewood, or Stockbridge with it's Norman Rockwell Museum. And of course, Jiminy Peak, which offers not only some of the best skiing available in the New England area but a variety of year-round activities to keep the entire family entertained. You'll find something for everyone in the wonderful Berkshires.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: I am a NYC public school teacher and my husband is an international correspondent for Brazilian media. We have been married for 35 years and have spent that time living in both Brazil and the United States and love to travel all over the globe. When we travel we prefer to stay in rental homes in lieu of the traditional hotel. We draw from the positive home stay experiences we've had, from Paris to a fishing village in Brazil, in order to offer our guests the same welcoming, at home feeling we so very much enjoyed.

Why the Owner Chose Hancock, MA, USA:
My husband and I bought this house in 2002. After 9/11 and a subsequent trip to Paris,(where we rented a stunning, modern apartment), we decided that we wanted to buy a weekend home, a special retreat, closer to home. Though we love the beach, remembering the anxiety from the constant traffic, driving to and from our past summer vacations in the Hamptons, counter-acted the tranquility we were looking for near the ocean. We decided instead to buy this home in the Berkshire mountains, where we have found the tranquility we were looking for. There is absolutely no traffic to contend with, not on our drives up and down the Taconic State Parkway, and not in any of our travels from one town in the Berkshires to the other. And of course there's the fact that the Berkshires is a cultural haven, filled with everything from world class dance at Jacob's Pillow to New York Times reviewed theater, from the quaint Norman Rockwell museum to MASS MOCA, the largest contemporary art museum in the world. We love the peace and quiet and all that the Berkshires has to offer, and are sure you will to.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
For ski lovers, the proximity of the house to the Jiminy Peak slopes, just 2 miles down the road, gets you to the mountain in no time. But the 2 mile distance is just enough to afford you and your family space, privacy and a wonderfully peaceful environment.
