Why This Lot is Awesome

This lot is awesome because it is within a well established subdivision with access to both underground utilities and public sewer, as well as offering close by access to Butternut Ski area and the many attractions of the Great Barrington area.

This is How We Would Build on This Lot

We would want to build as part of this project a main dwelling and if possible two additional structures that could used as an ADU, studio space or private retreat. The main dwelling would require clearing for a driveway and build site. We would selectively cut and gently grade the property to accommodate a driveway and build location. From here a small train could be established for access to your private place in the woods. These locations could be off grid for a more rustic experience and to save on overall development costs.


The Mahican Indians called the area Mahaiwe, meaning "the place downstream." The village was first settled in 1726 and was officially incorporated as Great Barrington in 1761. Great Barrington's Main Street was the first in the United States to have electric lights. Today, the main street bustles with restaurants ranging from hippie to nouvelle, art galleries, clothing boutiques, and cafes.
