Your hosts at Wolfe Spring Farm know of all the best swimming holes, waterfalls and cultural attractions in the area.
Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: The Wolfe family has been farming in south Berkshire County since 1808 and on Wolfe Spring Farm since 2006. We are committed to stewarding the land and protecting the environment. We have raised four fabulous kids - a farmer, an electrician and two college students. We live in a solar-powered house behind the barns - close enough if you need us but out of sight.
Why the Owner Chose Sheffield, MA, USA:
Apple Cottage was built in 1840 by a local stonecutter who quarried marble nearby. (the fireplace mantel used to be part of the foundation). It has been owned by many local families. It is now protected by an Agricultural protection restriction. It is beautiful with great walks and views everywhere. Close enough to all the Berkshires has to offer but quiet and private.
The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
This quiet well-appointed home sits at the entrance of a 54 acre farm on a country road. The original builder wisely situated it in the lee of a hill, so it is cool in summer (has air conditioning just in case) and sheltered from wind in the winter. It looks at the knoll to the north, the cliffs and a meadow to the east, orchard and pasture to the south and a sunset (from the deck or sunset deck) to the west. Rural and quiet, yet not far from anything and two hours from New York City.
