This 1910 livery stable and carriage house has been converted into an outstanding residence and wryly called the ''The Green Garage'' by the Curtiss family. It retains considerable original detail and is full of ambiance, with the wood-paneled walls, beamed ceilings, and antique I-beam untouched. The updated second floor includes 3 bedrooms and a large studio, also known as ''the ballroom''. The first floor is a part guest apartment, original carriage house, and raw space. The land includes acres of open meadow with undulating natural features, an old apple orchard, a secret stair, and views of Black Rock– a part of Nature Conservancy land adjacent to Mt Everett and the Appalachian Trail. The roof, boiler, septic system, well, and water heater are all new. This Berkshire property is historic, gorgeous, and genuinely transporting.
