Settle into a family-friendly, contented situation with this three-bedroom Great Barrington farmhouse on a half-acre of land.
We get it: You’re sick of the rat-race, and you’re scoping out western Mass for a place big enough for kids and pets. Well, call off the search; we did the legwork for you and found this turn-of-the-century charmer 1,440 square feet in size, just a few miles from both Great Barrington and Stockbridge, MA.
Bay windows are the focal point of the first floor, with a set in both the light-filled dining room and the main living room…
…filling the interior with lots of natural light bouncing off those original, refinished wood floors. We’re feeling more grounded by the second just looking at these pictures…
In addition to the upstairs portion – where you’ll find all three bedrooms – the walk-up attic can be finished and converted into a fourth bedroom, studio, office, or guest room.
A large front yard and old-growth shade trees provide the wrap-around front porch plenty of privacy from Front Street, as well as views of Flag Rock across the Housatonic River.
Putter around back of the half-acre parcel and utilize the potting shed for gardening projects. Love a good cook-out? Set up on the stone patio. BYO firepit.
From here, Great Barrington is four miles to the south, and Stockbridge is five miles north. There’s lots to do outside in this part of Berkshire County, like walking and hiking trails, skiing/tubing, and vineyards.
NOTE: Don’t get too attached to the living room wood stove. It’s being disconnected upon sale, so says the listing.
