Looking for the perfect spot for a getaway with family or friends? This spacious home in the Berkshires offers beauty, privacy and comfort. A long, densely wooded driveway opens to a private four acre lake and a lawn that sweeps up to a modern country house with a wraparound porch. Light pours in through glass doors that surround the open-concept first floor. You will enjoy the conviviality of a large kitchen that flows into a dining area with a farmhouse table that can accommodate 8 guests, and a sprawling yet cozy living room with fireplace. The porch will draw you outside to enjoy the gorgeous views that stretch all the way to the Catskills.
On the west side of the house, the porch is screened, so you can feast on a barbecue at the outdoor tables and watch the stunning sunsets. If a night chill sets in, light a fire in the outdoor fireplace.
Ideal for family gatherings or groups of friends. There are two separate two-bedroom suites on the second floor. The rooms on the East side of the house each have two single beds, the rooms on the West side of the house each have queen beds. Each of the 4 bedrooms has its own private bathroom and shower. There is also an extra room on the ground floor furnished with a daybed and a bathroom with a roomy tub. This room can also be used as an office/TV room. Additionally, there is a large basement/playroom that sports a ping-pong table plus plenty of toys available for children. Outdoors, you can enjoy a game of soccer, croquet, volleyball, basketball on the back lawn, or have fun jumping on the trampoline. Perhaps you'll be drawn down the hill for some swimming, canoeing or fishing (catch and release only, please) in the lake. On snowy winter days, the hill makes a fantastic sledding slop.
You are centered in 100 acres of wooded-lands where a rare man-made sight is noticeable (a recent cell-phone tower's blinking light might be noticed some 70 miles away from the property since 2014 and Rensselaer in the winter). Sounds are either crickets, coyotes on a hunt, bumble bees, birds, falling trees, wind and rain, a lady-bug, private planes flying above, or the copper roof snapping to temperature changes at sun-fall.
* Please note that in winter you will need a vehicle with AWD or 4WD.
