Brady's Retreat is set on forty-two idyllic acres in the charming Berkshire hills of Western Massachusetts. In the summer months, the Berkshires are a veritable cultural mecca where Tanglewood, Jacob's Pillow, and multiple theatre companies offer a plethora of performances for discerning audiences. Multiple museums reveal the Berkshires' rich cultural heritage. The nearby Cranwell resort offers golf, tennis, and spa activities. There are outlet shops close to the house and there are multiple antiquing opportunities. Restaurants abound in the immediate area surrounding the house, including Chez Nous, The Red Lion Inn, and the Blantyre.
Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: A scholar and director of an arts and humanities center, I reside in Connecticut with my family and my dog. The Berkshires are my sanctuary from the bustle of twenty-first century quotidian life.
Why the Owner Chose South Lee, Lee, MA, USA:
The Berkshires have always been sacred to me and my family, and we are grateful not only to enjoy this unique site, but also to share its natural beauty and cultural merits with visitors.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
From the moment that I see the sign Brady's retreat and turn into the drive, my quotidian concerns dissipate and I smile at the thought of evenings by the fire pit or afternoons curled up on the sun porch with an Edith Wharton novel.
