Modern Home Bright With Natural Light And Beautiful Carpentry.

We call this house 'South Sedgwick' because of its location on a piece of land formerly used by the Sedgwick family for picnicking--an ideal spot for relaxation with stunning views of Monument Mountain and Ice Glen.

The house was built by the hands of its owners. Finished in 2014 with ash hardwood floors, custom white pine trim and mahogany decks. The interior has an open-concept floor plan inviting abundant natural light. Custom built-in features include a handmade nook bench looking out over an expansive nature preserve, a vibracustic hydrotherapy spa tub, an upstairs coffee porch, and more.

We have a first floor master suite. If you require handicap access please contact us regarding your needs.

Beautiful, big back yard opens into 11 acres of wooded land, where the Konkapot brook runs nearby. For those with a sense of adventure, trek through the woods and use this brook as a push off spot for leisurely kayaking through nearby rivers with gorgeous natural vistas. For the less experienced adventurer, there is an easily accessible kayak push off .1 miles away. Toward the western border of the house lies scenic railway tracks, now concealed by forest. The historic train station is only .3 miles away.

This prime location is in the center of the cultural epicenter known as the Berkshires. Nearby attractions include: Tanglewood, Berkshire Theater Festival, Naumkegg Gardens, and Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival.

Please note that if this property is booked our 2nd beautiful property may be available. "The Gatehouse on Golden Hill." #932941.

About Teva Smith

Nick and I bought this house in 2007. I was eager to learn about building and Nick an old friend, who at the age of four had asked for a tool belt for Christmas was willing to help. We started to plan a renovation for tand realized there really was not much we could save. Nick and I then went through a process of permitting and deconstructing and then rebuilding the house by hand. Using the best materials and Nick's spectacular design, we constructed an amazing home that we think you will love. Our story is one of perseverance, hard work and creative ideas which resulted in a truly uplifting story and you will feel that way while staying here.

Why Teva Smith chose Stockbridge

We loved the location! The house has a side walk in front that goes into downtown Stockbride. The house sits on 11 acres of land. We are located at the epicenter of the premier cultural destination in America known as the Berkshires. We are a short drive to Lee, Lenox and Great Barrington.

What makes this House unique

We love the views from this property. We were excited when we found out the Sedgwick family used to picnic on the land because of the unique views. The many outdoor seating areas are truly special as is the bright and modern inside.

                                                                      Diane R.

                                                                      Clean, well-maintained property that met my expectations and then some. Peter was very hospitable during our much appreciated welcome tour. Kitchen is very well appointed. We were there during muggy weather which brought out bugs that prohibited us from enjoying the yard, but the gardens looked wonderful from the balcony.

                                                                      Beautiful Berkshires Get-Away

                                                                      Lori M.

                                                                      We just returned home from a long weekend in the Berkshires. The house was just perfect; the pictures are accurate and depicted exactly as it. The location is ideal as it's close to town, hiking, shopping, theaters, etc. We rented it with our family, including two eleven year old girls. The kid's room was perfect as it contained two pull-out beds, a TV, an easel, etc. The number of bedrooms and bathrooms was ideal for us. We had plenty of room and privacy. Everything was provided: toilet paper, paper towels, pots, and pans, etc. We loved the surround sound music system. Each bedroom has a white noise speaker as the sound of cars can be a bit loud. However, the speakers drowned it out and wasn't a problem at all. We loved the fire pit and made smores. There's plenty of land for lawn games. We enjoyed sitting at the table on the deck next to the kitchen. Teva is wonderful to work with; so responsive and eager to offer suggestions, etc. We were greeted with local treats which was a warm and welcoming way to begin the weekend. We would definitely stay here again without any hesitation.

                                                                      Teva's property is amazing and beyond what we could have imagined. It is spacious and beautiful, and has all of the amenities. The yard and surrounding land is gorgeous, and while it is close enough to walk in to Stockbridge for coffee or breakfast, it feels a world away. We used the house to host the bridal party for our wedding, and there was plenty of space for everyone. Teva and his dad were responsive and excellent hosts; I would absolutely rent this property again. I've rented at least 10 HomeAway properties in the last few years, and this is by far the best experience (at a great price) that I've had!

                                                                      Great property. Beautiful house and gardens. Quiet and very private!

                                                                      Great location; close to everything. House had everything we needed, including all necessary kitchen tools. Owners were responsive and welcoming with a care package! A great place to catch up with old friends. Would stay again in a heartbeat!

                                                                      Stunningly spacious, sunny and special

                                                                      We thoroughly enjoyed our time here. The location was quite convenient to Lenox, Great Barrington and Pittsfield. Peter greeted us and gave us a great intro to the house; we arrived to proseco, strawberries, fresh tomatoes from the garden and donuts. The house was great for my 94 year old Dad as one of the bedrooms was on the first floor with easy access. The grounds are beautiful and it was great to sit and read on the hammock. Great kitchen for cooking and a nice deck for BBQ and cocktails outside. We had a lovely time and would come again.

I loved walking around the yard with my morning coffee enjoying the beautiful gardens. The kitchen is well-stocked, the beds comfortable with quality linens and it has central A/C.Teva is a pleasure to work with and a gracious host.

                                                                      History of Stockbridge: Stockbridge was first settled by English missionaries in 1734. The town has a tradition as an art colony. The sculptor Daniel Chester French lived and worked at his home and studio called Chesterwood. Norman Rockwell painted many of his works in Stockbridge, home to the Norman Rockwell Museum. James Taylor lived and sang about Stockbridge in his song sweet baby James. On the border of the Province of Massachusetts Bay there lies a gentle valley indented by low, wooded mountains, each of a contour strikingly unlike its neighbor. The river of this 'Happy Valley' hesitates and lingers on the edge of that luminous, green bowl of forest and meadow, mean- while changes her accustomed dancing, vivacious step, and walks serenely in a curved path west and north across the lovely plain of Stockbridge, tracing a double, willow- fringed ox-bow, on which the birch canoe must travel five times as far as the horseman who rides from bridge to bridge. This Taconic-Hoosac bowl in which Stockbridge lies was a home of the Mohekanew or Muh-he-ka-nuk, the people of the continually flowing waters, who, in past unknown suns, ranged far northwest. Here 'mid the softer hills of the Green Mountain range the tube told the hours of the day by mountain shadows, the sundial of the savage. Wnau-ti-kook is the first to become wrapped in shade as the sun falls below her summit. Above Rattlesnake or Deowkook- Hill of the Wolves- stands the north star, their compass of the night, whilst Orion served as their clock. Captain Konkapot's name for Rattlesnake Mountain was Mau-ska-fee-haunk when he indicated the north boundary of the tribe's lands of 'Housatonack [1] -allias Westonhook' - deeded to the whites ' in consideration of Four Hundred and Sixty Pounds, Three barrels of Sider and thirty quarts of Rum. ' The north line of Westenhook patent probably ran within half a league of the enchanting wild-wood park on Mr. Daniel French's estate at Glendale. Personal Favorites: Downtown Stockbridge is a wonderful and charming town. Big old mansions that are awe inspiring line the streets. There are restaurants and boutiques. The town is picturesque. Near by towns, Lenox, Great Barrington, Lee and Pittsfield offer a variety of restaurants shops, spas, trails beautiful views etc...
