About this listing
A beautiful country house tucked away in the woods providing a tranquil private setting, while still only a 15 minute drive from Lenox (Tanglewood) and central Great Barrington. Perfect for a couple or small family.
One luxury couple's suite with a king size bed facing french doors looking out onto the garden and forest. On suite bathroom includes a jacuzzi. There is a guest room down the hall with a queen size bed. If you are looking to accommodate a couple more people the couch in the upstairs TV room is an extremely comfortable pull out bed.
Upstairs there is a lovely kitchen (fully equipped), a spacious living room and a separate TV room with DVD player and a large selection of films. There is fast speed WIFI throughout the entire house. The house stays naturally cool during the summer and I can assure you no AC is necessary.
There are several house phones all of which are hooked up and can be used to make calls. AT&T gets good service at the house but Verizon can be spotty.
DIRECTIONS TO THE HOUSE:
From Great Barrington - take Rt. 41 towards West Stockbridge. You
will cross Division Street after a few miles, where there is a
blinking traffic light - stay straight which means continuing on Rt.
41 ( for future reference you can use Division Street to bypass GB -
your GPS will show you how).
Continuing on Rt. 41 will bring you to the Hamlet of Williamsville -
there is another blinking light - on the left there is the
Williamsville Inn. Your destination is up the hill and on the left.
It is essentially & nearly just before the top of the hill. Note on
the left you will pass a few houses that are visible from the road -
including a yellow house with a gambrel roof - turn your attention to
the right: you will see a whitish mailbox and a compound of funky red
buildings - the driveway for 270 is on the left - the property is
marked by a low stone wall - the is a small sign with 270 leaning
against the wall - the end of the driveway is marked by reflectors.
IF you overshoot the driveway, you can turn around in the next
driveway which is marked by a tall wooden fence. Please use caution
when turning in to the driveway as the oncoming traffic is coming over
a blind hill. Thankfully because of the set back of my house it is
From the West Stockbridge exit of the Pike: turn left onto Rt. 41 at
the end of the exit ramp. After about 5 miles as you come close to your destination you will note a large 'factory like' light coloured building on the
right, after that you will go over a small river. Pixley Hill Road
will be on your left, just before the river and Cobb Road on your right. The driveway is exactly 2 miles from Cobb Road on the right. As you approach you will see a house with a red door - slow down! then you will see a wooden fence - the property is the next one: slightly down the hill - there is a low
stone fence, reflectors mark the driveway.
Most GPS' work, but just in case.....safe travels!
All parts of the house are accessible - apart from the upstairs study which is currently being used as a storage space (however the washer and dryer are located in the closet in the study so feel free to enter and use these).
