Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: I am a Great Barrington native and I produce concerts for a non-profit classical music organization in the Berkshires. I am an avid skier in winter and a water person in the summer.

Why the Owner Chose Great Barrington, MA, USA:
This house is well located in the Berkshires. It is a quick 1.5 miles to downtown Great Barrington and minutes to all the cultural and natural attractions of the Berkshires. I live five minutes away and am readily available for help and assistance as you make yourself comfortable.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The sunroom, with its 7' high windows, looks across the patio and back yard to the mountain behind the house. Who knows what you might see but the turkey parade usually begins in late afternoon! Seriously!
