Beautiful & Privately Situated Home Abutting State Forest.ROAD'S END - a place to gather, a place to relax, a place to be. At the end of a country road, on over 13 acres of serene woodlands, you'll find the meaning of ''home''. Built by its original (and only) owners as a place for family and friends to come together, to eat, to reflect, to explore, and to celebrate. Inspired by mature perennial gardens, a natural pond, and surrounding forest, the home's design is focused on the integration of the indoor and outdoor living experiences. A stunning and spacious living room with a large stone fireplace, loft, and a wall of windows serves as the primary indoor gathering place, while a second cozy living area with fireplace just off the kitchen fosters more intimate conversation. Both rooms open to a central stone patio, with views of the pond and easy access to the screened porch.
The property's trail-filled acres are perfect for walking and cross-country skiing, and abut Sandisfield State Forest, with opportunities to swim, fish, and paddle at Abbey Lake and West Lake. Abbey Lake is a true local secret... a stunningly beautiful 40 acre lake that can only be reached by foot. One of two trailheads is literally across the dirt road from this home. Most of the time you will be alone at this hidden treasure. Also nearby, York Lake offers a pretty beach that is great for swimmers of all ages, and Lake Garfield in Monterey offers a public beach as well.
Wonderfully private, yet still in the heart of the Berkshires and its many attractions, including skiing at Butternut, hiking the Appalachian Trail, music at Tanglewood, theater at Shakespeare & Company, and dance at Jacob's Pillow.
