The Timothy Allen House, circa 1782, is privately set on over three acres of lawns and woods bordered by a lovely stream and beautiful stone walls. The original deed to the house hangs in the front hallway. The house is named after Timothy Allen, the original owner, who was a revolutionary war soldier. There is also a large restored barn on the property, circa 1700, one of the oldest barns in Western Massachusetts. A lovely patio area fronts the barn, perfect for barbecues.
Seventy acres of Nature Conservancy land surround the property, making this a special place for seekers of nature, tranquility, and privacy. A short walk down the road leads into Peru State Forest and Left Field Farm, where you can purchase fresh organic produce.
The first floor has a well equipped and updated kitchen, full bath, laundry room, spacious formal dining room, and large comfortable living room with cable TV and DVD/VCR player.
The second floor, accessible by two staircases, has three bedrooms. Two of the bedrooms have queen beds and one has two twins. There is also an office with a queen sized futon. There is a full bath with a newly installed tile and glass shower.
There is both a screened-in porch and an open porch for sitting, reading and relaxing, and enjoying the tranquil summer evenings.
Children and pets (dogs) welcome. Sorry no cats!
This is such a special property. It's the kind of place that makes you immediately step back and forget about life for awhile. You instantly realize you are somewhere special. If you like to hike, explore, read, write, take photographs...this is for you. Somedays it difficult to make it much further than the front porch but if you do, you will be rewarded with all the wonderful activities that surround the Berkshires any time of the year. Make sure to check out Glendale Falls for bathing under the waterfalls, Left Field Farm for wonderful farm fresh organic vegetables and Peru State Forest.
