As visitors drive along thousands of untouched pastoral acres and farmland, arrival at this bucolic and secluded farmstead is nothing short of memorable. The farmhouse is situated at the highest point of the road, with magnificent views of the rolling pastoral meadows below. When approaching the home, visitors are greeted by white fencing flanked by two beautiful mature oak trees, reminiscent of the property’s early days. Beyond that, antique barns with classic red roofing dot the nearby landscape.
The home has been lovingly restored with contemporary finishes seamlessly blending old and new. Upon entering the home, you are instantly welcomed into a finished sunroom, complete with gorgeous Brazilian slate tiling on the floors, plaster finishes on the walls, full walls of windows, and french doors that welcome you into the kitchen. The kitchen, fully remodeled, is complete with plaster finishes on the walls, bleached wood floors, a stunning marble kitchen island (and full marble integrated sink), stainless steel appliances (including a Viking stove), beautiful oak cabinetry, contemporary finishes, and an expansive view of the fields. Off the kitchen is a stunning butler’s pantry, with floor-to-ceiling oak cabinetry, a large farmhouse sink, and a beverage fridge. Additionally, a beautifully remodeled powder room is off the kitchen, complete with a custom vanity and travertine sink, fully plastered walls and shower, and chevron stone flooring.
The living room flooring has been updated to a combination of bleached wide plank flooring and custom wool cream carpeting. Especially cozy in the wintertime, the living room’s woodburning stove adds a layer of farmhouse cozy to the space. All rooms have incredible views/vistas/natural light, as there are tons of custom double-hung Andersen windows throughout every room, and in no shortage. Upstairs, the four bedrooms are incredibly spacious and with high ceilings and original pine flooring, which is unique to a New England farmhouse of this age. Additional living space includes a very large mudroom with wabi-sabi barn wood walls, a large office space or hangout space for young children, and an unfinished attic.
Outdoor living in the summertime is particularly special, with an L-shaped deck, directly off of the central kitchen. Grill and dine, with expansive views of the apple and pear orchards blooming directly off the deck, a reflective pond in the distance, and beautiful landscaping. The seclusion of the home, amidst bucolic views for acres, makes this home uniquely special year-round.
Situated on the town line of the Berkshires, the home is a short drive to some of the Berkshires’ most incredible year-round experiences. The home is within a 10+ minute drive of many reservoirs, lakes, and ponds; most notably, within a 7-minute drive to the incredible Otis Reservoir, a 1,085-acre reservoir, known for boating, swimming, fishing, and water skiing.
Within 30 minutes, you can experience some of Berkshire’s best skiing at Great Barrington’s Ski Butternut. Prairie Whale, a farm-to-table restaurant helmed by the founder of Brooklyn’s Marlow and Sons + Diner is a 30-minute drive to Great Barrington. Enjoy incredible shopping and dining options in Great Barrington, including One Mercantile, Westerlind, Marjoram and Roux, gourmet organic markets (Guido’s and the Berkshire Coop), and a wonderful seasonal farmer’s market.
