Quaint, rustic and charming country home in a peaceful natural setting, on one acre surrounded by trees and a stream and protected wetlands out back. Wonderful for nature lovers, just cross the fallen log in the backyard and follow trails that lead to an open fern gully field or sit outside and enjoy the various birds and wildlife.
Ideally located 5 min from route 66 (Westhampton Road) the house is five miles from Smith College and all of the shops, restaurants and cultural activities of Main Street, Northampton, and four miles from downtown Easthampton, The Williston Northampton School, Mt. Tom and the Eastworks building. Though close to services and amenities, our neighbors across the road, vegetable farmers, give the area a distinctly rural feel to it.
The property consists of a three bedroom, one bath main house as well as a loft-studio-in law suite addition (available for rent separately for those needing additional space). Lots of natural light streaming in and artisan details throughout. Simply furnished, the two upstairs bedrooms in the main house feature queen sized beds, the bedroom on the lower level features a full/double bed, the great/living room has a double/full size futon (typically left open as a daybed for lounging, but can easily be closed as a sofa) as well as a sofa bed that opens to double/full size bed accommodating up to a total nine guests.
The great/living room features four seating areas and lots of windows as well as two ceiling fans (there are also ceiling fans in each bedroom) which, with the open floor plan keeps the house amazingly comfortable during the summer months. The dining area seats six and the kitchen is large and fully equipped for preparing all meals at home. There is also a washer and dryer available in between the kitchen and bathroom, a great convenience. There is a screened in porch as well as a sun room, which are great ways to enjoy the scenery while remaining indoors. There is wireless internet available throughout the house and a large flat screen tv with roku internet tv (with dozens of channels and hundreds of free tv shows, documentaries and movies) in the living room.
The studio in-law addition is a large open loft space that has its own entrance (a central door that locks on both sides separates the units) and features a double/full size bed, above a small kichen/bath combo area. The studio can be rented as an addition to the main house at a daily rate of $198.
