Adorable, historic, 1824 home in the heart of Stockbridge. Minutes to Tanglewood, The Norman Rockwell Museum,Botanical Gardens,Kripalu yoga center and the Lake.Just around the corner is IS183 Art School, with classes and workshops for both adults and children.There are 3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms,cozy living room,brand new kitchen,dining room, and a sunny sitting room.There is also an extra room for a guest,on the first floor.Best of all, is the wrap around porch, overlooking the brook and quiet park across the street.The house has just been made over, with fresh paint, new bathrooms, new kitchen, and gleaming 190 year old wide board wood floors.It comes equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay, including linens, towels, and a well stocked kitchen.This is an ideal location for for one or two couples, or a family wanting to take advantage of all the cultural attractions the Berkshires has to offer. Besides being just 5 minutes from Tanglewood, and Berkshire Theater Festival, Jacobs Pillow is just a 15 minute drive, as is Shakespeare & Co. Also, Great Barrington, with the Triplex movie theater, Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center, and the best restaurants and shopping in the county, is also just 15 minutes away!
We came to the Berkshires in 1994 , temporarily, so my husband could work on a movie being made here. The job was done in 9 months, but we never left! Our 2nd child was born in Great Barrington, and we love our life here. I have a shop in Great Barrington, Seeds, that I opened in 1997. I sell home, and personal accessories, and feel like having our rental properties are a perfect extension of my business. I love meeting people from all over, and introducing them to everything Berkshire!
We chose this house, simply because we fell in love with it, and knew it was perfectly situated to enjoy all the best the Berkshires has to offer.It also was a 'project', and a labor of love, (sometimes hate!). Lots of sanding and scraping, painting and polishing, and finally, the best part, decorating!
