About the Property

5 Bedrooms, 3.5 Bathrooms

Amenities: 3500 sq. ft. 5+ bedrooms, 3 and ½ baths – sleeps 13 total, with no more than 10 adults. Central AC, wifi, basic cable TV, local/LD phone usage, heated in-ground pool, hot-tub, sunken trampoline, oversized gas grill, piano, basketball hoop, skateboarding 1/2 pipe, bikes, outdoor ping pong, and Ms. Pacman! Please inquire about pets. NO SMOKING.

Sixx is a one-stop destination property for families or friends looking for a fun, easy, relaxed vacation in an upbeat, eclectic-yet-elegant setting. The main floor has a kitchen gleaming with shiny stainless steal appliances. There is a six-burner gas Viking range, enormous fridge, and two large dining tables that will easily accommodate your group. One table is located in the kitchen area and easily seats 8. The other long table is in the dining room, also seating 8 guests, easily. There is a small powder room on this floor plus a sun room, used year-round. This sun-room serves a dual purpose as a home office and also as an additional sleeping space, with a full-sized day bed, for an overnight guest or an early riser - this room has lots of natural light so would not be the best for a late sleeper! There is also a large, sunken, living room with flat screen TV, fun piano, propane stove, and plenty of comfortable seating PLUS a vintage Ms Pacman video game – no coins needed! There is a wonderfully organized space for gear in the back entry foyer, accessing the back porch with outdoor seating, pool, hot tub, etc.
Upstairs you have 5 bedrooms and 3 full baths. The luxurious master bedroom has a king sized bed, a single daybed, and a lovely tiled bathroom with a combination tub/rain shower-head. The second “green” bedroom has a queen-sized bed and shares a full bathroom – tub/shower – with the “lavender” bedroom with two twin beds. The last two guest bedrooms: the “blue” and “red” rooms each have two twins but the red room can also be made up as a king bed and both share another full bath also with tub/shower. Please see the chart below for easy bedroom planning! The third floor attic is every child’s dream with tv sitting area, crafts table, games, toys and two full-sized platform beds tucked into the eaves – which makes for a fun sleepover party!
Outside there is the large wooden deck with enormous gas grill, outdoor fridge, serving area, with table and chairs. At the far end of the deck is the in-ground hot tub, available year-round. The heated in-ground pool is gorgeous and has two wooden deck/platforms on either side for sunning, viewing, and shallow diving – children must always be supervised! There is also a sunken trampoline, a basketball hoop, bikes, outdoor ping-pong table. It’s very fun here!
Fully gated for privacy, the house is located on route 23 but sits back away from the road. The yard is large and has plenty of room for all kinds of outdoor activities. The entire home has white painted wood floors that makes it feel like a beach house, with an easy indoor-outdoor feeling and plenty of storage/gear provided for all the fun things one can do in and out of this home!

Berkshire Rental Properties

Year Purchased: 2005

About: Hello, I am Claudia Laslie, owner and founder of Berkshire Rental Properties, managing vacation rentals throughout the Southern Berkshires. I went through a big life change in 2003 and started renting out my own home to make some extra money. I realized I could help others do the same and starting my company in 2005. My role is to act as the liaison between the renter and the homeowner and there is no fee to the renter for my service! I look forward to working with you to help you find the perfect rental property that works well for your needs. I am also a licensed MA real estate broker with Barnbrook Realty, in Great Barrington, so I am happy to assist you with all of your real estate needs!

Why South Egremont, Egremont, MA, USA:
I represent this property because of the many fun amenities (heated in ground pool and hot tub, sunken trampoline, basketball hoop, ping-pong, Ms Pacman, plus 3rd floor playroom and more!!), plus fabulous central location.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
See above plus close to all southern Berkshire events. Sleeps 15. Wonderful property!!
