Property description

This beautiful and immaculate historical home, with large open living spaces and beautiful exposed beams, has a perfect location It is a 3 min drive to the center of beautiful Great Barrington, only 10 min drive to the Ski Resort Butternut! Great swimming only a few blocks away at Lake Mansfield! It easily accomodates two families with areas for privacy and quiet as well as beautiful spaces for family and friends to build special memories together. The house sleeps 10 very comfortably.

This spectacular home was built by one of the Berkshires' most outstanding post and beam builders, D. Lanoue. The frame, first raised circa 1858 in Duanesburg, NY, was restored and reassembled in 1993. The 42 feet by 30 feet form is hand-hewn of mostly hemlock timber held together with wooden pegs.

In addition, the wide pine plank flooring is from the threshing room of the original barn. Deceptively simple in outward appearance, the interior is beautifully decorated with French Provincial antiques and Primitive accessories. Many modern conveniences include all new appliances, dyed plaster walls, an excellent central air conditioning throughout the house, WIFI, Ipod docking station, a DSL line and cable tv with 100 channels.
