Why This Lot is Awesome

This lot is awesome because it has stunning views of the Housatonic River and is located just minutes to downtown Great Barrington or Housatonic. The parcel has easy access to water, sewer, cable and internet. It offers ease of access as it is partially cleared, features a curb cut with a rough driveway, and has a small shed that can be repurposed or removed.

This is How We Would Build on This Lot

The first step in this project is to remove the small shed. The next step would be to work with the already cleared area to establish a build site. The further up and into the property the better the view of the river. This is the ideal location for a medium to small build given the overall lot size. Conventional and municipal utilities are available at the road which will save groundwork time and overall development costs. It wouldn't take much to get this property ready for construction.


Housatonic is located along the northern edge of the town of Great Barrington and is bordered to the north by the towns of Stockbridge and West Stockbridge. The Housatonic River runs through the center of the community. . The spectacular Berkshire countryside provides numerous trails and back roads for hiking, cycling, bird watching, cross country skiing and snowshoeing.
