Year Purchased: 2000
About the owner: We are a couple who have residents in the Berkshires and Florida. We have three married children and seven grandchildren and a host of friends who love to visit us here in Mass. We enjoy golf, bridge, music and theatre and find that our lives here are so full that it is hard to imagine not having a presence in the Berkshires. We have been here for 18 years. I volunteer at VIM which is a free clinic for people without health insurance and I also volunteer at Tanglewood. My passion is cooking and I am a CIA trained home cook. My other passion is writing and my book, 'Having Guests Means Never Seeing the View' by Gayle Harmelin, is a humorous memoir about what life is like when you entertain all the time. It also has an appendix detailing all the activities in the Berkshires. This book will be available for renters reading while in the house. I also write a humor column for a local newspaper. My husband is a licensed and insured driver and sells real estate only to selected clients. Our home is truly our castle and we are giving you a chance to enjoy this environment and see what we saw 18 years ago.
Why the Owner Chose Great Barrington, MA, USA:
We first looked at the Hamptons and then the Jersey Shore. Only the Berkshires offered us a wealth of entertainment and sports options so varied, that everyone in our family from small children to adults could easily find enjoyment here. Just driving over country lanes fills the eye with exquisite mountain views and meadows lined with stone walls behind which you may see hundreds of sheep or Scottish steers. You will see clear lakes an the Housatonic River as it cascades from the far north through Western Mass. into Conn. Our senses are filled with a serenity particular to the Berkshires. Imagine taking your picnic to Tanglewood as your children or guests relax on the lawn enjoying film night with the Boston Pops as narration takes place by Steven Spielberg. This is what is in store for anybody who chooses the Berkshires, rated #7 in the world as best tourist destination by National Geographic Magazine in 2009.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This is a house for entertaining. The number of sleeping spaces coupled with the number of private sitting areas allows for quality time together as well as often needed time apart. The house is perfect for two families or five adult couples.
