This lovely 1887 Victorian home was recently remodeled to accommodate more modern tastes, but it has not lost the antique quality of the original. There are now 3.5 bathrooms, 2 of which have jet showers and walk-in closets. Most guests prefer to enter through the back door as its the entrance closest to large back parking area, and leads right to the heart of the home. The kitchen; is designed in more of a professional manner, as well as being open, airy and easy to use. From the kitchen, leads a large, creatively decorated dining room and half bath. The dining room continues to a smaller collaborating area which includes a nice music player and our "globe bar". All of this extending into the living room allows for a very open, enjoyable atmosphere. It exists in the center of a small village, and this well-insulated home does well at keeping the inside quiet (on this niche of a street). There is a children's playground about 50 yards from the house and there are very lush gardens, both flower and vegetable in the front and back of the house as well as land owners right next door. This house holds a very large lawn in the back including chickens and an organically grown garden. Also includes a large parking area with some storage space in one of the garages.
The owner and her assistant are both excellent chefs and are available for catering- though the town of Great Barrington has so many restaurants, that almost every taste could be satisfied! There are also several museums in the area, notably, the Norman Rockwell (7min) and Chesterwood (5min) to name a few, as well as jazz venues, the Arlo Guthrie Center, Egremont Barn, etc.
Within 15 minutes or less to Marian Fathers, Kripalu, Tanglewood, Red Lion Inn, Butternut, Berkshire Theatre, Shakespeare and Company, Catamount, Berkshire South Community Center, Simons Rock, Botanical Gardens, Lake Mansfield, Project Native, Great Barrington River Walk and more.
Property is under new management, very clean and organized with friendly service!
