Our home in Great Barrington is the perfect escape from city life without sacrificing any of its amenities.

Things We LOVE:

Wake up on your private 11 acre estate to the sound of birds, take a dip in the heated pool and drive five minutes to one of the most charming farmer's markets you have ever seen. Grill on the deck, let the dogs run loose and end the evening on the hill watching the sunset.

With a closet full of board games & puzzles and a fireplace waiting to be lit, our home provides the perfect stage for memorable weekends together. Dogs may have the best time of all. The 11 acre lawn (squirrels included) is a doggy paradise.

The house itself is situated up a long driveway providing absolute privacy and seclusion while being very close to town, Guido's (a must-see gourmet grocery) and the aforementioned saturday farmer's markets. The yard is large and flat - perfect for a sunday game of touch football or croquet.

We love our home in Great Barrington and can't wait to welcome visitors to share the peace & quiet it provides.

About GRACE LEE

NYC resident who loves the city but misses big open spaces, fresh air and peace and quiet.

GRACE LEE purchased this house in 2014

Why GRACE LEE chose Berkshires

We love our Berkshire escape. The big open lawn affords beautiful views and provides a playground for the kids and animals. The driveway is long and totally secluded. I often wake up early and take the dogs with a fresh cup of coffee just down the driveway and back.

What makes this house unique

Solitude and Privacy While Remaining a Five Minute Drive to One of My Favorite Grocery Stores of all Time and to Great Barrington City Center. the Best of Both Worlds.

Lovely home, quiet setting, close to town

  • 5 of 5

Lovely home with a big backyard where the dogs played and played. In the summer the pool would be amazing! The property was clean and well-maintained and owner communicated with us throughout our stay. The house is on a quiet road for nice walks but only five minute drive from Great Barrington. House is well appointed with nice bedding. We hiked at Monument Mountain, walked at Beartown State Forest and took a day trip to Mass MOCA. Lots of nice little restaurants and shops in Great Barrington. Not enough snow to ski, but Butternut is very close. A great basecamp for a Berkshires adventure!!

wonderful house for your vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved staying at this beautiful house!

The pictures don't do it justice. The house is much larger than it appears in the photos and has a great feel to it. The downstairs play area for the kids is fantastic (the gym area as well) and the pool is wonderful! Great location in a great little town. Enjoy!
