About the Property
Upstairs apartment of duplex, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)
Built around 1860, the Riverhouse has been updated and outfitted for modern-day convenience but retains its charm and unique appeal. From original painted-board floors and claw-foot bathtub with shower to modern amenities this property offers spectacular views of foliage and wildlife from the deck, picture window and bathroom of this upstairs artist’s aerie, filled with original art by local artists.
The only house located directly on the banks of Rising Pond of the Housatonic River, it offers spectacular views of fall foliage and wildlife and makes for an authentic Berkshires experience. Easy access from the bank of the property for small boating and sculling. Located in the heart of the Berkshires; the Appalachian Trail, Tanglewood, Shakespeare and Co., the Rockwell Museum, Chesterwood, summer stock theater, music, and dance are all just minutes away. Easy access to Butternut Ski 5 miles and Catamount 12 miles. Fully equipped kitchen with all cooking utensils and serving dishes make eating on the deck and entertaining a delight. Walking distance (1/4 mile) to the fabulous Berkshire Mountain Bakery with delicious french pastries and bread for your morning coffee and take away pizzas for easy meals. Taft Organic Farms is 1.25 miles down the road for local products and produce.
The open floor plan and lovely views make this efficient upstairs apartment seem much larger than it’s 700 square feet. ALL NEW BEDS IN 2015! The two private bedrooms include twin beds that can be made into a king in the first and a queen-size bed in the second. The large bathroom features an antique full-size claw foot bathtub (with shower) that gives out to a incredible view as you soak! Full laundry facilities available. Parking for two cars.
