Looking for a swanky slice of architectural history nestled in the woods of Massachusetts? Then feast your peepers on Stockbridge's latest 'Home of the Week,' a mid-century modern jewel that throws tradition to the wind with its sleek design and eco-friendly edge. Listed at just a hair under a million bucks, this 2,119-square-foot domicile doesn't just sit on land — it reigns over 1.77 acres of pristine forest as per Boston.com
Unlike the storied Federal-style and Georgian Revival homes that echo the area's past, this pad, built in 2015, offers an uninterrupted commune with nature courtesy of those floor-to-ceiling windows. According to a Boston.com feature, this crib was the Dallas couple’s dream turned reality, designed by local architect Stephen Gerard Dietemann. They wanted a "contemporary, playful look and feel, with low-maintenance materials to limit the amount of work needed," wrote Dietemann.
From the spacious living room with its muntin-less picture window to the primary suite's en-suite bath hidden neatly behind a pocket door, as per the detailed shots captured by Vincent Caruso Photography, it's clear no corner of comfort was cut. The Wheeler & Taylor Real Estate listing confirms that this is a peacefully situated haven between Great Barrington and Stockbridge, featuring a wood-burning fireplace, granite countertops, and that ever-desirable screened-in porch.
Kickback in the family room, where the wood-burning fireplace takes center stage, flanked by nearly floor-to-ceiling windows that invite the Berkshires inside. Plus, for those who desire the ease of living life on a single level, this Stockbridge stunner doesn't disappoint. The home features amenities that make it easier to get around, including a shower that doesn't require a big step up from the floor according to a Boston.com interview.
This house whispers sweet nothings of low-fossil-fuel living with its Energy Star Tier 2 rating. Rose Baumann of Wheeler & Taylor Real Estate beckons luxury-seekers and eco-warriors alike to consider making this Stockbridge spectacle their own personal sanctuary.
