Property description

This newly renovated studio apartment is right in the center of quaint Great Barrington. Walk the nearby Riverwalk or to shops, restaurants, movies and the Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center. Short drive to visit Norman Rockwell's Stockbridge and chic Lenox shops. Lots of antique stores in nearby Sheffield. Enjoy summer theater and picnics on the lawn at Tanglewood or Lake Mansfield beach.

Ten minutes from Tanglewood, Stockbridge shops, Norman Rockwell museum, great hiking trails and skiing. The Berkshires are a summer theater mecca so enjoy the multiple live theater options or picnic on the lawn at Tanglewood Music Center to listen to the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Will arrange picnic baskets and chairs if requested.

Hike nearby Monument Mountain or nearby state parks with Appalachian trail sections. Lake Mansfield is close for swimming as are various state parks. Or ask for directions to local swimming holes at rivers or waterfalls.

Winter fun includes day and night snowboarding/skiing and tubing at Butternut Basin or Catamount, or cross-country skiing in local parks.

This lovely modern apartment is on the first floor of a private home, with a separate entrance and large screened-in porch for morning coffee or relaxing in the evening. Full kitchen and separate bath with shower. New convertible sofa sleeps two - just right for a couple. Cable TV and WiFi internet included. No land line.
Only a short walk from the NYC bus stop.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: Former New Yorker who wanted the country lifestyle for children who are now grown and gone. Love to walk to 'in town' activities, yoga class, restaurants and movies.

Why the Owner Chose Great Barrington, MA, USA:
We chose the Berkshires because of their proximity to New York and Boston. The outdoor activities we enjoyed such as hiking and canoeing were readily available but also the sophisticated restaurants and summer theater the Berkshires are known for.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Comfortable home base for exploring the Berkshire Hills area. In-town home so you can walk to church or the Farmers Market on Sunday morning, go to indie movies, restaurants and cool coffee shop. Short drive to Butternut Basin or Catamount for skiiing, live theater, dance and traditional Tanglewood picnics in the summer. Stay for the annual Berkshire Film Festival in June or summer craft fairs. Tour historic mansions like Naumkeag, or the Mount, home of Elizabeth Wharton.
