My Fave Getaway Dream House
I've rented a few homes and visited lots of friends in the Berkshires and rarely have I come across a house as well-appointed and beautifully maintained as this one in Austerlitz. We've rented this sunlit country home a few times and each visit flew by. The hillside grounds, surrounded by forest, have an expansive feel with a pool perfect for laps, moonlight swims or gatherings. There's an insulated screened-in porch with windows all around, that's my favorite room. With a big glass table for dining on BBQ straight from the outdoor grill, it's a perfect place to catch the killer sunsets. The views from the decks along the house and around the pool are breathtaking--sky, mountains and farmland. As secluded as it feels, the house is wonderfully situated. It's a short drive to golf, tennis, and the incredible restaurants and shops of Great Barrington. Tanglewood is a mere 1/2 hour away. Let's just say the location makes it easy to satisfy cravings for high culture or low, or none at all. Golf and tennis are nearby and there's great biking just down the long driveway along the lightly travelled road. The owners are businesslike but easy and accommodating. With an impeccable, understated esthetic, they designed the spacious rooms for absolute comfort in a bucolic, protected spot. With ample room for kids and guests, it's a dream house I wish I'd found first.
