This lovely, secluded A-frame is located on a one acre wooded lot in the private community of Otis Wood Lands, Otis, MA, in the Southern Berkshires, less than 3 hours from New York City/ Northern NJ and Boston. The house is set back from the road and the neighboring houses are spread apart, to create a quiet, natural setting. The house has three levels. The main level has an open living room/ dining area with cathedral ceiling and ceiling fan, a Vermont wood-burning stove, and a double set of sliding glass doors that lead out to a wood deck. Flat screen TV and DVD (no TV reception). The fully equipped kitchen is open to the dining/ living area. There is a master bedroom with queen bed and full bathroom. Off the bedroom is a large, new spectacular screened-in porch surrounded by woods, with skylights, ceiling fans, and comfortable seating and eating areas. The lower level contains a bedroom with double bed and a full bathroom, a rec room with a new futon double bed, ping-pong table, darts, and large screen TV and DVD player (no TV reception). The third level bedroom contains a queen bed, double bed and high riser bed.
We love spending leisure time in the Berkshires. We live and work in the New York Metro Area; the Berkshires provide the perfect change of pace and scenery for us less than a three hour drive from home. For many years we rented cabins and stayed in bed & breakfasts. We spent time as a family and as a couple enjoying the variety of outdoor and cultural activities the Berkshires has to offer. We decided to buy a second home here.
Donald Spector purchased this house in 2002
We truly fell in love with the house and property on our initial visit. The rustic look, the fully equipped home. and all the community amenities make this the vacation home we had always hoped for.
The house is a four season property. We swim, kayak, play tennis, hike, snowshoe, ski, bike, and take nature walks; attend dance, theater, film, and concerts; go to museums that are famous throughout the country - Norman Rockwell, MassMOCA, the Clark, and Williams College Museum of Art; visit historic homes; and enjoy dining at restaurants of every ethnicity, style, and ambiance imaginable.
Numerous nearby state parks, forests, and lakes offer swimming, fishing, boating, hiking, picnicking, and beautiful views. Fall foliage is phenomenal. An idyllic ski getaway, numerous downhill and cross-country ski areas for both novices and experienced skiers are located only minutes away. In Otis Wood Lands there is a serene lake with a safe, sandy swimming beach, as well as an outdoor heated pool. Hike on a trail that begins a short walk from the house through Otis State Forest to beautiful, secluded Upper Spectacle Pond. Enjoy ping-pong and darts in the rec room of the house, or relax in the solitude, reading a book on the deck or the screened-in porch surrounded by the tall trees and the subtle sounds of nature. Minutes away enjoy antiquing, the outlets, concerts at Tanglewood, dance at Jacobs Pillow, plays at the Berkshire Theatre Festival, Shakespeare & Company, and other regional theaters, movies, numerous art museums, including the Norman Rockwell Museum, and many other sites.
