My Notes

Edit
Follow your bliss down the long, winding driveway to this serene, private haven in the country. Stroll lazily across the wide expanse of newly mowed lawn, toward the bountiful terraced garden, where succulent tomatoes await harvesting for tonight's salad. Admire butterflies and wildflowers in your own hay meadow, or revel in the sight of a majestic blue heron in flight along the course of the Alford brook. Breathe deeply of the pure mountain air, feel the sun's warmth on your face, observe the unspoiled beauty of the surrounding, protected landscape. Take a sauna before your afternoon dip in the pool. Do yoga or art in the cabin. Bask on the stone terrace while the kids play in the tree house. Bicycle, walk or run for miles along the quiet country road. Choose to see a movie in town, invite house guests, or not. And feel quietly pleased that you are paying less than $4,000 in annual taxes. Yes. This is bliss. A mere two hours drive from Manhattan, rural yet sophisticated. This house, this property, could be one of the smartest moves you'll ever make. A magnificently simple and wonderfully private contemporary farmhouse on 18+ acres exemplifies country living at its best. Designed with casual elegance and easy living in mind, this stylish home features expansive light-welcoming windows that frame views in all directions, a gracious open plan, an unfussy cook's kitchen with polished concrete countertops and a Wolf range, a delightful master wing with a home office, and four upstairs bedrooms, including a second master suite. Located in bucolic Alford, Massachusetts, a mere 10-minute drive from Great Barrington, which Smithsonian Magazine recently dubbed the "best small town in America," within convenient reach of world-class music, dance and theatre performances, Canyon Ranch, Kripalu, and other resorts and spas, excellent restaurants, organic farms, the Taconic Parkway, and Albany airport. Welcome to the Berkshires.  More Less
