For whom is this property perfect?
The property is perfect for a developer looking for a scarce resource: a waterfront hospitality or residential opportunity in the Berkshires. The possibilities are numerous, just to name a few: spa/wellness resort, boutique hotel, condos and townhomes, luxury homes.
What’s the most fun thing to do within five miles of this house?
The most fun happens right on the property, with beach, trails, and woods. Also, Camp Mohawk is located off Route 8, a major north/south artery linking the southern Berkshires to Williamstown. Just up the street, one can hop on the Ashuwillticook Rail Trail, a bike and multi-use 14.2-mile trail built on an old railroad bed linking Pittsfield to the northern towns of Cheshire, Lanesborough, and Adams.
If this property could talk, what secret would it tell about its history?
The Colonial home and cow barns on the property were built in 1789 by John Pettibone, a leader of Lanesborough during the American Revolution. It was an operating farm and stayed in the family for 100 years. One can imagine that both hard work and outdoor fun prevailed for generations of Pettibone children. The history is well-documented, and the five remaining buildings are on the National Historic Register.
