Beautiful, spacious, always comfortable-with central air, a roomy hot tub under the stars and lots of outdoor space and gardens in this lovely in-town home.

This is also the perfect 'ski house' less than 10 minutes to Walk to the movies, the theatre, the best restaurants in the area...Allium or Prairie Whale or Bizen for a superb dinner out or Baba Louie's for your favorite pizza. Listen to great music and enjoy your favorite libation at Castle Street restaurant or Gypsy Joynt...

This 4 bedroom/2.5 bath home is located on the hill, just 3 blocks from downtown great barrington. There is an abundance of space starting with a large, comfortable seating area on the side of the front porch (wi-fi and an outlet for your electronic needs) with oversized cushions, large coffee/cocktail table, beautiful area rug, palms and breezy outdoor curtains...continuing all the way through the house to a screened in porch with more comfortable furnishings; the perfect hang out space for reading, napping, dining or chatting. Continuing out the back door you will find a bluestone patio with outdoor dining, next to gardens with a bubbling fountain and a large hot tub spa. There is a third porch off the kitchen (the door most often used) to sit and sip coffee, read the paper and watch the birds. All of these outdoor spaces have wi-fi and are surrounded by lush gardens, a large lawn and privacy.

The kitchen renovation just completed boasts white cabinets with cherry island, granite countertops throughout, large Kohler sink and extra island prep sink, a Garland professional range, Subzero refrigerator, beautiful mexican tile floors, lots of storage and fully equipped with quality cook ware for the chef in the family.

There is a very large eat-in kitchen with dining table, large bay windows, and cushioned seating.

The media/family room features a large flat screen, dvd and cd players, bose sound system and plenty of seating.

The first floor also includes the dining room with large sideboard and two pairs of french doors leading to the eat-in kitchen and the living room, and the cozy living room with its library wall and 122 year old family desk.

Each of the bedrooms has been recently painted, wood floors refinished, newly appointed furnishings and all new, high thread count linens. Each of the bathrooms is shared by two bedrooms, one with separate shower and claw-foot tub, the master with gorgeous marble subway tiled shower, frameless glass walls and custom double vanity with marble countertop.

Our home was recently outfitted with high velocity central air---such a luxury in a historic home and given the recent summers, a 'must' in our area.

No detail or expense has been spared in preparing our home for your enjoyment.

About Annie

We moved to The Berkshires from Manhattan on our oldest son's 1st birthday. That was in 1990 and Carson is now 25. Since then, we've had two more boys, Sam and Skylar, and raised them all in this wonderful home.

I have been in the vacation rental business since 1995 with properties on Nantucket and in northern Michigan and so it was only a matter of time before Craig and I became empty nesters and rented out our primary residence.

Annie purchased this house in 1990

Why Annie chose Great Barrington

In addition to managing our properties, I have been managing rentals for a real estate office here. I know what is out there and I know what people want.

My passion is home design (and cooking, entertaining and traveling) and my husband is a Landscape Architect. Over the past year we cleaned, insulated, re-painted, refinished, updated, renovated, added central air and re-furnished to the tune of $150,000.

I have truly tried to think of everything you could want in a vacation home. If there is anything I have forgotten, just let me know and I will get it...I have to draw the line at personal chefs and nannies, though you are more than welcome to bring your own.

What makes this house unique

Location, location, location!

This home is located in a quiet (most desired) neighborhood, one house away from a town park, and a short three blocks to our downtown. It is also very close to both local ski areas.

Our home has lots of space inside and out, a huge kitchen which can handle lots of cooks, multiple, wonderful porches for coffee in the morning and cocktails in the evening, and the most comfortable beds and linens you will ever sleep in.

Wonderful!

We spent a girls weekend in Great Barrington. This property was the perfect spot! We were able to walk to town for shopping and dining. The house was warm, clean and welcoming. We will definitely go back!

Perfect Berkshire Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We loved this place. We were recently in the Berkshires for a fall wedding and, as we know the area pretty well, knew that the hotel options aren't great. This house was the perfect solution and so much better than any hotel might have been (really, we've tried them). Aside from being incredibly well located (a short walk to the restaurants and shops in Great Barrington and a short drive to the supermarket) the property is secluded and beautiful with a lovely garden -- and makes for the ideal retreat. Inside, the house is huge so you're not on top of one another and the rooms are really comfortable. They're all tastefully designed with warm personal touches like interesting books and every amenity like fireplaces and lovely towels in each bedroom, so you really felt right at home without feeling like you were living in someone else's home. The kitchen is crazy big and well equipped with a very large dining table (in addition to the one in the dining room), so it made for a great place to gather and relax. We didn't have time to use the hot tub, but really enjoyed spending time on the front porch in the evenings -- it was still beautiful weather and very quiet at night. But perhaps best of all, the owners are incredibly friendly and accommodating -- Annie had great suggestions for neighborhood restaurants and in really cared about helping us maximize our stay. She even let us extend our stay -- come up early and stay later in the day so we could maximize our experience because they didn't have anyone else booked on the day we were leaving. So in summary this was a terrific choice. We're already talking about coming up with our family for a longer stay this winter. The location and the amenities and comfort can't be beat. Perfect.

Lovely walk into Great Barrington

  • 5 of 5
Is it fair as a Mother to give a review? Well here goes anyhow: this home is filled to the brim with LOVE. You can feel it when you walk in; it will welcome you. The home is large yet cozy. Even in a group of eight, one could always find a quiet corner for retreat. The neighborhood is quiet; the garden is lovely and beautifully maintained by the two owners who are garden lovers. You will keep coming back.
