Enjoy your summer, fall, winter and spring at this 4 bedroom/3.5 bath folk Victorian farmhouse with wrap-around porch in North Egremont. This house has just been renovated and invokes an English garden vintage charm updated for modern lifestyles.
The great country kitchen features an English cream-colored AGA 4-oven cooker, 4-foot Subzero fridge, apron-front Franke sink, KitchenAid dishwasher, soapstone countertops and cherry cabinets. From the kitchen sink are views out to the field beyond. There's an eat-in breakfast table, as well as a larger dining table in the bay window in the den. The living room has a Jotul gas stove for chilly nights, and the den has an over-stuffed couch and a large TV with DVD player (inside the 1800s butler pantry) and an upright grand piano. Through the secondary entrance is a mudroom with a powder room, large cast iron sink and new Samsung front-load washer and dryer.
The guest suite/office downstairs has a queen bed and a stand-alone claw foot tub with shower ring. It opens onto the glass porch with sitting area to view the private back yard.
The upstairs master suite features a king bed and vaulted ceiling, and French doors lead to the large master bath with double vanities and a clawfoot tub. The two other bedrooms have two twin beds each and a full bathroom in between them. There are steam heat radiators throughout the house, and, of course, Wi-Fi. The cell phone carrier is AT&T, which gets the best reception. A home phone is available, also.
Outside is the front and side porch with seating, and the backyard has a vegetable garden and fruit bushes. The neighborhood has a village-feel, so the house is set back about 40 feet from the road, with abundant space in the back for playing, swinging or roasting marshmallows by the fire pit.
You're 3 miles from Great Barrington's Main Street and around the corner to the magical Berkshire Waldorf School!
If you'd like even more of a country experience, feel free to come down the road a mile to meet our chickens and sheep!
We stayed here when our daughter graduated from a nearby school. One of our guests was in a wheelchair and except for the door into the house and the door into the first floor bedroom she was able to be wheeled throughout the first floor making it an enjoyable stay. The house is charming and old. It is a farmhouse as the title states and we weren't expecting fancy. The perks of the Subzero refrigerator and an Aga were kind of a surprise. I've never cooked on an Aga and the owners left a great little sheet instructing us how to use it. If we ever have an occasion to come back to the Berkshires I would definitely stay here.
Loved our weekend away. Hiked Bash Bish Falls and went to a lovely dinner. The house was so cozy and great for a girls weekend.
Everything went as billed
We loved using the Aga, what a fun experience! The house is beautiful and comfortable with plenty of space for everyone. Great tubs! We enjoyed the firepit and watching all the little planes from the nearby airfield. Location is close to downtown Great Barrington which is so lovely as well. Thanks for the wonderful stay!
