About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

Situated on a country road, overlooking the Green River, this is a new home re-built in 1990 on 90 acres of land. 100 steps away is your own private riverfront beach! Swim, skip rocks, sunbath and watch the birds in this beautiful spot that is all yours! Surrounded by fields and woods, the landscape is breathtaking. Take a hike in the woods, or walk across the street and lounge by the river; this is an ideal setting for a vacation or personal retreat.

This is a very comfortable home with a fully stocked kitchen, fireplace, library filled with classics and light reading. Our family has celebrated holidays and vacations in this home for 45 years, and we are excited to share this jewel with you.

The house is in Colrain which is 12 miles away from Greenfield, 7 miles away from Shelburn Falls and 15 miles away from Brattleboro VT. The house is only 20 miles away from the Berkshire East Ski Resort and 45 miles from Mt. Snow. 2 hours from Boston; 3 1/2 hours from New York.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1965

About the owner: Max is a retired school professor and his wife, Joan, an artist and writer, own the property. We sought a second home in the country for summers and holidays as well as to experience a different lifestyle from our urban life in Brooklyn. Upon retirement, this became our permanent home. The original house (which was built in 1825) burned down and was totally rebuilt in the similar style, in 1990. We now live in California for most of the year so we can be close to our grandchildren.

Why the Owner Chose Colrain, MA, USA:
We wanted lots of nature and we got it. Mountains, the river, open skies and our garden are the highlights. Great memories were created for our family here: swimming in the river, reading by the fire, hiking on our property, and great meals with fresh food from the local farmer's market.
