Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

About the owner: We are retired professionals who discovered the Berkshires after our children had grown up in our previous home. The increased traffic and congested/"built-out" community there no longer suited us. So we moved to Becket! Love the small town ambiance/facilities AND access to all kinds of cultural events and offerings in the Berkshires. One of us totally enjoys outdoor activities in all the seasons and the other mostly enjoys playing tennis year round. We both enjoy the cultural offerings here. The fact that we never lack for company is certainly indicative of the popularity of Berkshire living!

Why the Owner Chose Becket, MA, USA:
Beautifully constructed and furnished house in quiet area. No traffic noise! Many windows! Rural ambiance yet close to theater, music venues, museums, sports venues all year round.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Fresh Country Air. Privacy. Spacious, yet Cozy. Bright and Sunny Year-round. In Summertime -- CENTRAL AC comfort available if needed. In Winter -- Enjoying romantic aura of the authentic wood-burning fireplace from the posh leather sofa.
