Just 11 miles northwest of Lenox, this historic farmhouse is located in Canaan, NY, on a hill with a large lawn and views of barns, fields and mountains. The house has 7 bedrooms and an eat-in kitchen with large picture windows. The dining room table can seat 16. A front porch with comfortable furniture overlooks a football field size lawn, a barn and a tree with a swing. House is ideal for large family gatherings and exploring the cultural riches of the Berkshires in spring, summer & fall. In the winter it's ideal for families getting together to ski at Jiminy Peak (25 min. North) or Butternut Ski Basin (30 min. South).
My brothers and I now own the farmhouse that has been our family gathering place for generations before us. We would come to the farm every summer from our home in Connecticut. While no longer an operating dairy farm, the house, lawns, fields, and barns that were our great summer escape are still there for us. We love it and think you will too.
If you are looking for a house with lots of space to gather friends and family, lawns for them to be outdoors, and easy access to interesting places in the Berkshires, you can't find a better vacation spot.
The view from our kitchen table is mesmerizing.
The house is a short distance from Exits B2 and B3 on the New York State Thruway extension of the Mass Pike. It is located on County Route 5 about 500 feet north of the intersection with Route 295.
