About the property

Modern Post & Beam House, Open Floor Plan, 3BR Suites W/ Balcony/Mountain View

Nestled in the Southern Berkshires on almost 14 private acres in the desirable Town of Alford, you will find your contemporary vacation home where you can relax and re-charge. This home is in a beautiful, private setting offering breathtaking southern and western views. The home is conveniently located to all major Berkshires attractions and only a short, scenic 10 minute drive to downtown Great Barrington, Guido’s Marketplace (GB’s version of Whole Foods) and the Farmers’ Market.

This newly built house features an open floor plan, with soaring 25-foot ceilings in the great room. The master bedroom features an en-suite bathroom (shower, soaking tub, two sinks), with its own private screened porch. On the second floor you will find two additional spacious bedrooms also with en-suite bathrooms and each with its own private balcony. Additionally for your relaxation, there is a lovely loft space on the second floor where you can read a book or enjoy spectacular views of the distant mountains. All bathrooms are outfitted with top of the line European fixtures.

For your gourmet cooking pleasure, there is a sleek European kitchen complete with top of the line stainless steel appliances. Enjoy your meals alfresco on the screened porch just steps off the kitchen.

The house can comfortably sleep 5 to 7 people (one queen bed, two full beds, one twin bed).

The furnishings are new and contemporary in style; with the exception of the antique iron beds in one guest bedroom.

A large blue-stone patio invites you to soak up the sun or enjoy cocktails as the sun sets over the mountain ridge.

Additional Amenities

There is ample parking, including a two-car garage.

This new house is well insulated, and together with its passive solar construction keeps the summer heat out. Nevertheless, if the occasional summer heat becomes oppressive there is an air conditioning system which can be individually controlled.

The house is also equipped with high speed internet (Verizon DSL) and a telephone land line. A flat screen satellite TV, DVD player and a stereo can be found in the great room for your entertainment.
