With quality and detail from an earlier era, this grand estate is a home with a story. Farm house, country manor, B&B, it has been all of them, and now it waits for your ideas for its next chapter. From the wraparound porch to the entry foyer to the spacious public rooms, this home is gracious, open, and filled with light. Set on over 3 acres of lawn and meadow, with a classic New England barn, outbuildings, and views to the Berkshire Hills. Updated mechanicals, modern septic system. Steps to the Arlo Guthrie Center, minutes from the Mahaiwe Theatre and downtown Great Barrington, and convenient to Stockbridge, Tanglewood, and all that the Berkshires have to offer.
