Why This Lot is Awesome

This pair of lots is awesome because one includes access to a recreational pond, and both offer access to all of the natural and cultural highlights of the Berkshires.

This is How We Would Build on This Lot

This project is like two projects in one. First we would want to develop the main lot which is accessible by typical road frontage. The primary dwelling site would be developed by first creating a driveway access. selective clearing would be required for this access as well as the build site. The build site would require clearing enough for the foundation and utilities including well, septic and underground electric. From here a trail would be needed to bring you to the recreational pond. At this shoreline would be the launching point to reach the other parcel of land located across the water. On the other parcel we would want to develop an ADU that could be used as your own private day or overnight retreat.


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 town of Stockbridge in our town guides.
