The SpaceThe charm of a quaint, small town combined with culture & sophistication to give you plenty to do... all surrounded by the peace and natural beauty of the mountains.
The house has 2,400 sq. ft. of living space on 3 levels. New birch wood floors have been installed throughout the 1st and 2nd floors. Walk through the foyer to the first floor; which features 2 bedrooms - each with queen sized beds - a full bathroom with shower, and an open plan kitchen and living room. An inviting propane stove in the living room is perfect for relaxing on cold winter days. Especially when coming home from skiing or snow tubing at one of the many ski resorts nearby. The 50" wide screen TV is equipped with Netflix, Amazon Prime TV & movies, HBO Now and AppleTV, which provides quiet entertainment for those restful days at home. The well appointed, eat-in kitchen has a wooden table that seats 6 comfortably, with an extra leaf to accommodate 2 more. Sliding glass doors lead you from the kitchen to the BBQ and patio table on the open air deck, surrounded by trees. A great place to unwind after a day of hiking, seeing a show, or antique shopping. Don't feel like cooking? The Berkshires is home to some of the best restaurants around. Each town has it's own wonderful collection of dining experiences, we are happy to recommend our favorites.
On the second floor, you will find a perfect place to read or play a board game in the open area loft. The loft looks over the living room below as well as the trees that are outside the windows. Up here, the cozy bedroom has 2 twin sized beds and there is another full bathroom - this one with a bathtub.
The finished downstairs level is a large, carpeted family room with a seating area, a gaming area and a children's play space. The room opens to the backyard through a sliding glass door. The media center is equipped with a 50" wide screen TV, an X-Box 360, and a Wii. The play area for young children is equipped with a small assortment of toys & books.
