About the Property

Spacious, welcoming, friendly home on 16 private acres.

No matter what season, there is so much to do in the Berkshires. This stellar 4,000 sq. foot home with scenic views throughout, located in Alford, MA and minutes away from Great Barrington (restaurants, triplex movie theater, Mahaiwe Theatre) is the perfect blend of town & country.

Have fun preparing a delicious a meal in the large chef's kitchen, then retreat to the family room for movies or TV with a warm fire burning in the gas fireplace. If you chose some quiet time, then snuggle up with your favorite book by the fire in the library. During the summer months, swim in the large, pristine inground pool accessorized by Frontgate chaise lounges and market umbrellas.

Besides skiing, there's plenty more to do nearby. Enjoy X-country skiing, snowshoe-ing and hiking in Bartholomew's Cobble (Sheffield,MA), great shopping and restaurants in Great Barrington and nearby historic towns.
