Perched on a rise in the beautiful lower Berkshires of Litchfield County, this house is your ideal escape from city life! A modern house with a New England farmhouse feel, surrounded by lawn and flower beds, with green views from every window of this sun-filled cottage. Situated in the tri-corner region of NY, CT, and MA, it sits on a breezy rise overlooking hay fields, and is surrounded by gardens featuring a stand of pines and butternuts. The west-facing deck, living room, and master bedroom, overlook the sunset beyond the hay fields, with Indian Mountain defining the horizon. The trip from New York City is either by car (1.5 hours), or by rail. Wassaic station is 20 minutes away and it is the last stop on the Metro-North Harlem line.
In the fall, the autumn foliage and sparkling blue skies of the season are in full display at this location. This listing is ideally located for visitors to the Hotchkiss School. For the intrepid, the Appalachian trail is very close for a pleasant day hike. Apple picking and berry picking or any local day activity is punctuated by cosy evenings at the fireplace or flatscreen TV in the living room.
Winter at the house takes "cozy" to another level. Enjoy resting indoors by the fireplace, while watching the snow fall all around. If you are a skier, within a 20-minute drive you will find skiing at Mohawk, and if you head north, Butternut, and Catamount are also a great weekend choices in nearby southwest Massachusetts.
Besides Hotchkiss School (5 minutes), Kent (20 minutes) and Indian Mountain school (10 minutes) are also nearby. This home could not be more convenient for parents up for a weekend to combine rest and visiting with a son or daughter.
The house features a newly renovated kitchen with modern stainless appliances, granite counters, and a 30 bottle wine cooler. Anderson windows are everywhere, wood floors and marble tiled baths. Cable service, broadband internet and WiFi keeps you connected, ... if this is what you must do.
We hope to hear from you!
