Year Purchased: 1998
About the owner: About us: Julia, originally from Providence, and Bernard, originally from Chicago met in St Louis and together went to Brooklyn where we bought a brownstone and raised our two children. We loved the Berkshires spending summers here till we moved permanently 17 years ago. She was an ESL teacher and painter and he a self-employed writer. We looked at over 70 houses but chose this for it’s artistic vibe, big spaces, high ceilings, beautiful natural setting and great central Berkshire location.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We have enjoyed living here year-round for the past 18 years. We rented the house for the first time in August 2015 and to two different renters and it was very successful. We hope the many photos will speak for themselves. We can provide more. If you have a friend/family member in the Berkshires, we’d be glad to show them the house on your behalf. While we live with many antiques this is a comfortable family house (not pristine or fussy) and we want any renters to feel comfortable making it their home for a relaxing, enjoyable stay. We will be happy to make suggestions for restaurants and other activities in the area. A gardener and mower will come once a week.
