About the Property
4 Bedroom, 2.5 Bath Farmhouse On 2 Beautiful Acres In Northern Berkshires
The 2-acre plot is nicely landscaped, with paths cut through the small meadow to Kinderhook creek, a lovely path for families with children to explore. The gazebo is a great place to have coffee or read, while gazing out on the meadow and mountains beyond, in rain or in sun. Use the fire pit on summer nights to extend your enjoyment of the day.
If you like nature, pastoral settings, art, culture or adventure, the Berkshires are ideal. Situated between Ioka Valley Farm (with its barnyard, fall festival or maple season pancake breakfasts) and Jiminy Peak (great family skiing in winter or mountain adventure park in summer and fall), this house is in the beautiful Jericho Valley of the Northern Berkshires, with views of mountains and meadows all around. Within a picturesque and relaxing drive to Mount Greylock wilderness area, Williamstown (home of the renowned Clark Museum and Williams College and its Summer Theater Festival), and Hancock Shaker Village, it is also an easy drive to apple picking in Richmond, summer concerts in Tanglewood, historic Stockbridge and all of the Berkshire attractions. Even many of the great attractions in Southern Vermont, such as historic Bennington, scenic route 7A, Shaftsbury, are less than an hour away. Manchester with its great shopping, restaurants, Lincoln home Hildene and Mount Equinox summit drive, is about an hour north. In all of these day trips, the drives are lovely, with barely a traffic light in sight. In the summer, local farms stands abound, allowing you to enjoy fresh and often organic produce, berries, corn and maple syrup.
There are many lovely parks in Williamstown and the surrounding towns with easy and moderate trails (and several Berkshire hiking guides are in the house for your use). Several lakes are also nearby - Cherry Plain in New York, Onota in Pittsfield - but it is often not hot enough to swim. This house is ideal in summer, winter and fall.
Special consideration will be given to a winter season rental - our goal is to rent the home for the entire winter. Please inquire.

Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: We are a family of four, we live and work on Long Island, NY, our kids are teenagers and we do not get up as much as we'd like due to their schedules. I work as an administrator at Hofstra University.
Why the Owner Chose Hancock, MA, USA:
I love the historic house (but renovated) and the big yard with views to the mountains. And I love adventures, so I go ziplining, kayaking, hiking in the summer, drive to Vermont and explore stuff, antiquing, go to Tanglewood and sit on the lawn for an evening concert, the museums are great. I walk at the Clark Museum grounds or field farm or Greylock almost every day. And I love the beautiful drives everywhere and NO TRAFFIC LIGHTS.
The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
The house is really well-appointed and decorated, homey, roomy - lots of space. I especially love the gazebo in the summer and walking around the grounds. Each room has photos and maps from the area - posters from the Clark Art Institute, photos of the mountains and Vermont and the Shaker Village nearby, Rockwell reproductions. Lots of blankets and books and movies for you to use.
