Why This Lot is Awesome

This lot is awesome because it has a gravel driveway and cleared home site. Plus this 2+ acre parcel is within walking distance to the lake and beach!

This is How We Would Build on This Lot

After a thorough site evaluation and site analysis we would approach this property in stages. The first stage would be to create access onto the property by clearing for driving access. The selective site clearing would address clearing trees, removing stumps and grading the ground as needed. We also strive to be gentle on the land and place structures where they belong instead of straight clearing land. As part of this rough-in stage the same process would continue for the build site, accessory structures and any additional dwellings like an ADU. Once this stage is completed we can begin securing the necessary utilities including well, septic, electric and cable. Coordination of these service providers should be started sooner rather than later.


Along the western border, Berkshire County, M.A. has a population count of 129,026 and spans across 946 miles of the state. This county is home to larger cities like Pittsfield, which is the county seat, North Adams, and Great Barrington. This area also encompasses plenty of parks and reservations like October Mountain State Forest and Mt. Washington State Forest.

The upland town of Becket is just as well known for the famous "Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival" as it is for trout fishing the West Branch of the Westfield River. This area was once a prosperous lumber industry and is now is noted for its many summer camps and second homes.  Read more about the area and the nearby towns of Great Barrington, Stockbridge, North Adams/Wiliamstown, and Lee in our Town Guides.
