Car: Necessary

3 miles from Appalachian Trail. The RED LION INN is in nearby historic STOCKBRIDGE-

Many others are within a 30 minute drive. Lime Rock- sports car race track is within 20 miles. It, too, is scenic. Summer only. check schedule. Visit Jacobs Pillow for Ballet shows,

Shakespeare and Company. Visit Tanglewood! Have a picnic meal on the lawn or reserve seats in the shed. Watch the Boston Symphony Orchestra or other performance where you can purchase a bottle of wine- if you run out. It is a wonderful experience. James Taylor is a frequent performer here.

See Arlo Guthrie at the Guthrie Center in Great Barrington. It is in the church of Alice's Restaurant fame. Reserve in advance- it has very limited seating.

Visit the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge.

Don't miss tea (or) on the porch (or inside) the Red Lion Inn in Stockbridge-walk along Main Street

Another of our favorites is Chesterwood. Home and studio of Daniel Chester French- the sculptor of the Lincoln Memorial, The Minute Man-and many others. The house and views are wonderful!

Mass MOCA, an hour north, is also a worthy visit as is the Childrens Museum in Pittsfield.

Also visit Bash Bish Falls. The view and swimming are great for the whole family.




Manager info

Year Purchased: 2006

About: We had this home custom built as an elegant , comfortable weekend /retirement retreat. It has all the furnishings and amenities we love and wish to share this lovely home with you.

Why Sheffield, MA, USA:
It is both private and beautiful. It is an easy drive to all of the Berkshire attractions and of course a very easy drive from NYC or Boston. In the winter we are very close to Butternut, Catamont, and Jimminy Peak for great skiing. After a day of skiing what could be more relaxing than an hour spent in the steamroom off the Master Bedroom! During the Summer we have Tanglewood and the beautiful view off of our back deck. Enjoy the abundant wildlife, a birders paradise. Spend some time splashing in the river. In the winter enjoy time around the fire after a great meal.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Enjoy the quiet beautiful privacy of the library and relax in the Steam Room in the master bath. It is a great home to spend some relaxing time away from the rush of daily life. Breathe deep and relax. Close to museums, the great, special, grocery store, Guidos, as well as Stop and Shop. Tons of fabulous restaurants in Great Barrington; antique shops are everywhere or go to the Lee Outlet center. Close to skiing and all attractions.
