Why This Lot is Awesome

This lot is awesome because it is a waterfront location on beautiful Hayden Pond, along the headwaters of the Farmington River. The lot also has a beautiful open meadow and colonial stone walls, with a shared driveway already in place. Bonus points for an available adjoining parcel that is also for sale if you are looking to spread out or build a friends and family camp.

This is How We Would Build on This Lot

In our opinion this project would require developing both parcels as one and they are both listed for sale as a package. This seems to be the perfect lakeside spot for a site plan that would include two structures. The main dwelling would be the main home with conventional utilities that sits back from the lake. The second smaller structure would be located as close as possible to the water. This structure could be used for social gatherings, a work space, studio or just a place to kick back and enjoy what lake side living has to offer.


The Town of Otis is located in the southeast portion of Berkshire County. It is bordered by the towns of Tyringham, Monterey, Becket, Sandisfield, Tolland and Blandford. It is a town nestled quaintly along several lakes and ponds, against gentle slopes of the Berkshire Range, and in the Farmington River Valley.
