My Notes

Enjoy the comfortable combination of old and new in this stylish, sophisticated, light-filled antique farmhouse. Expanded and updated for 21st-century living, this marvelous home is a post-and-beam treasure built in about 1790. Sensitively renovated for today's country lifestyle, it retains its historic character with four fireplaces, hewn beams, wide-board floors, built-in bookcases, lovely woodwork, and other time-honored features. Along the home's easterly façade, walls of windows welcome the sunlight and frame lovely views. The first floor of living space offers ideal flow for entertaining along with cozy spots for intimate conversation. This level comprises a large, airy sunroom with French doors to the terrace, a living room with an early fireplace, a den/music room with fireplace, an elegant dining room, an expansive library with a wall of windows and a stone fireplace, a second den/home office that could become a first-floor master bedroom, and an efficient kitchen with a generous dining area. A graceful staircase, replete with venerable scrollwork decoration, turned balusters, and exposed hand-hewn beams, leads to the second-floor. Here, a master suite with stone fireplace affords wonderful easterly views, while two smaller bedrooms await family or guests, and a snug room is used as a home office. The property comprises 96.36 private acres of fields and woods with Green River frontage and lovely easterly views, a stone terrace, beautiful landscaping, perennial gardens, garden shed, and three-bay garage. Part of the acreage is in agricultural conservation, which reduces taxes; the current owners allow a neighbor to graze cattle in a distant field, adding to the rural ambiance. The gracious living space continues outdoors with terrace and gardens, expansive lawn, pasture, woods and mountain, a three-bay garage, and a garden shed. This magical property is located a few minutes from Williamstown center, shops, restaurants, the excellent Greylock public school system, the Williamstown Theatre Festival, Williams College, the Williams College Museum of Art, the Clark Art Institute, MASSMoCA, and skiing, golf, and hiking on nearby Mount Greylock. Other Berkshire amenities are easily reachable by car. Albany Airport, about an hour away, is convenient for domestic and international flights, while local airports in Bennington, Vermont, and Pittsfield, Massachusetts, serve small private planes; New York City and Boston are accessible via train service from Albany and bus service from Williamstown.  More Less
