This large, stylish home, aka The Birdhouse, has just undergone a thoughtful and extensive top to bottom renovation. It boasts four bedrooms including a new master bedroom with a private balcony and en suite bath. Close to all the hot spots of The Berkshires, but luxurious enough to never leave, it’s situated on ten private wooded acres with a screened porch for outdoor grilling and dining, a wraparound deck for bird watching and a separate outdoor beer garden with a firepit and plenty of firewood.
Indoors you’ll find a true cook’s kitchen (Viking stove, Fisher & Paykel fridge, marble countertops), an open concept living/dining room with Wittus shaker wood stove and a separate media room for screen-time fun, plus four well-appointed bedrooms (with beds for 8 people) and three modern spa-like full baths. This is a perfect home for multi-generational family gatherings or groups of friends who want to share communal time together while also enjoying some privacy and breathing room. Dogs are welcome too!
A separate sleeping cabin in the woods is a highlight of this property. Accessible by a footbridge over a seasonal creek and a short walk from the main house along a marked, wooded path, the cabin sleeps up to two people, with a single futon bed and additional sleeping bags. There’s no plumbing, but a wood stove provides ample warmth for those looking for an outdoor glamping experience.
Ideal for nature lovers, birders, writers, artists, or anyone seeking a comfortable country escape with all modern amenities. Location is excellent for walking, hiking, bike-riding, kayaking/canoeing. Swimming is nearby at multiple lakes and the beautiful Umpachene Falls is short walk away. In addition to on-property hiking, the Robert Joffe Nature Sanctuary is steps from the house.
And yes, there is high-speed internet, Amazon FireTV & Hulu Luve TV, and central air-conditioning.
Located in close proximity to Gedney Farm and Camp WaWa Segawea, this is an ideal location for wedding guests. Spectacular restaurants like The Southfield Store, Cantina 229, The Old Inn on the Green, The Prairie Whale and more are all within a short drive, as is the charming town of Great Barrington with its specialty shops and picturesque Main Street. The Berkshires is a cultural mecca and the house is a short, scenic drive to Tanglewood, Jacob's Pillow, Rockwell Museum, MASS MoCA and much more.
