Why Doug Deville chose Berkshires

We bought this home and property to renovate as we do this as a hobby. We have renovated several properties, but then when they are are bored. Now we hope to share our work with you. Also, Sandisfield is a quiet community situated around much cultural, scenic, and active opportunities. We hope you'll take advantage of all to be seen and experienced.

Lovely house in the South Berkshires

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely house in the South Berkshires. We're used to the "traditional" Berkshire rental: a little run down, a little musty, with about 25 years of owners' knickknacks on display, and noisy neighbors close by. If that's what you like, don't rent this house! It’s recently renovated so the inside is new -- and very nicely finished. The kitchen is super well equipped and included tons of food. Little finishing touches made it seem like a casual boutique hotel. Relaxed but delightful. And that's just the inside. Outside is a huge lawn (lots of open space, no other houses in sight) with dramatic plantings, beautiful flowers, a vibrant vegetable garden, and tons of birds. More goldfinches than I've ever seen in one place, plus woodpeckers, hummingbirds, etc. A short walk (under 5 minutes) to West Lake, which has to be one of the quietest lakes around -- no motor boats, often no people. There's no real beach and the bottom is kind of rocky but the water is great. You can drive a short way to more conventional swimming places with lifeguards and roped off areas (York, Lake Garfield, Benedict Pond) but we didn't bother. It's a bit of a drive to Tanglewood, Outlet Mall, supermarkets, etc., so you'll want to consolidate those trips. Internet is excellent; cell phone is okay (find a good spot and don't wander around). There's also a land line. Bedrooms are a drop snug but fine. Livingroom/dining area is roomy and the screen porch (with another dining table) is really the best place to eat. Only one bathroom but there's also an outdoor shower (why shower indoors when you can be outside??). Big almost empty double garage for your cars (if you want) or just use it for bikes – or as a workout space if you have a rainy day. Doug was relaxed and accommodating and is just an email away if you have any questions.

Summer Heaven

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend this place. Really special -- the perfect combination of simplicity and comfort with the focus on the beautiful garden and wildlife. We arrived from a smoggy foreign capital to find a note asking us to take anything we wanted out of the vegetable and flower gardens and promptly did -- devouring the broccoli and checking for ripe strawberries every day. The children raced around on the lawn doing all of the things they can't do in the city; kicking off shoes to pick flowers, collect crab apples, chase frogs, birds and butterflies and hurl water at eachother. When they got tired of this we walked a few minutes up the road to West Lake and went canoeing or drove ten minutes to York Lake for swimming and blueberry picking or Lake Garfield for free swimming and more kids. This is an amazing place for running (lots of dirt roads) and cycling (lots of small roads without many cars). Monterey General Store or Southfield Store are cozy spots for coffee and gourmet food a ten or fifteen minute drive away. The beautiful Southfield Canaan road takes you to Stop and Shop for groceries(20 minutes) or you can drive 30 minutes to Price Chopper, Guidos, Big Y, Food Coop in Great Barrington. The house is snug and simple, not fancy but very clean, light and well designed with excellent water pressure and heating and is well stocked. There is a porch for eating. Nice neighbors. Perfect owners -- generous, helpful and accessible, unobtrusive.
