Windfall Hill Berkshires
Experience a residence with a historic feel that blends seamlessly with modern amenities and contemporary style. Nestled on 4100 square feet of rustic living space, this stunning five-bedroom Berkshires property is centrally located to all of the central and southern Berkshires major natural and cultural attractions. With 10.6 acres of scenic views all around you, you’ll feel miles away from reality at this gorgeous New England home.
This stunning house features cheery and bright interiors, with rustic wooden finishes and plenty of gorgeous art pieces throughout. A multitude of beautiful, custom-designed windows and unique architectural details help to make this home one-of-a-kind. In some of the downstairs rooms, the ceiling beams have been exposed and the wood trim stripped, creating a distinct, warm ambiance. The living room has a huge, stone fireplace and plush, oversized furniture to relax in. Intellectuals will love spending leisurely evenings in the cozy library, complete with a radiating fireplace.
When dinner rolls around, there’s a spacious, eat-in kitchen that was completely renovated in 2016. Featuring a large brick fireplace, a six-burner, two-oven Wolf gas stove, and Sub-Zero refrigerator, this amazing space is a master chef’s dream. You’ll love the smooth wooden finishes and bright green hutch, stocked with lovely cookware and cutlery. The large dining room features original 24-inch floorboards and a small fireplace, creating a natural, yet elegant spot to dine.
Complementing the house’s historical design, you’ll find plenty of amazing, contemporary artwork throughout. Steady pieces from artists such as James Rosenquist, Sarah Anne Johnson, Trisha Brown, Markus Lupertz, Liset Castillo, Pat Speir, and so many others.
When it’s time to call it a night, you’ll love having your own, private retreat to reside in. Each of the five bedrooms features a classic style with warm, snug bedding that will keep you warm on cooler nights. Most bedrooms feature plush, queen-sized beds, and there’s also a cozy kid’s room with two twins. Above the stables, you’ll find an extra sleeping space with exposed beams, and a simple, yet new, bathroom. The family room downstairs offers a pull-out sofa as well.
Just outside of the kitchen, step out onto a stone-laden patio, with moss and covered by a pergola, the perfect spot to dine alfresco while enjoying gorgeous views of the gardens and surrounding fields. You’ll find pleasure in walking through the aged, stone walls and terraced gardens that surround the home. Away from the house, just past the garden, you’ll find a massive swimming pool, completely private and surrounded by mature juniper hedges.
Take a short hike on the mowed pathway through a field filled with bursting wildflowers, and you’ll find a few Adirondack chairs perched on top of the hill. From here, you’ll soak in spectacular vistas of the Berkshire Hills and three states. It’s the perfect spot to sip on your morning coffee or a pre-dinner cocktail while taking in the sunset.
The town of Monterey is a hidden gem, boasting plenty of natural beauty and entertainment! Two public lakes offer plenty of opportunity for water sports or head to Beatrown State Forest of the Appalachian Trail for some hiking. You’ll love the charming general store, plus a plethora of amazing farms in the area, offering cheese, honey, baked goods, and fresh vegetables. While you’ll feel far away from civilization, you’ll only be minutes away from Great Barrington and plenty of other Massachusetts towns, where you’ll find plenty of fine dining to enjoy.

Autumn in the Berkshires
What a charming historic home in the Berkshires! We had such a lovely time. Mark was a gracious host. He was extremely helpful, suggesting activities and restaurants in the area. Windfall is centrally located and the prefect place to stay while exploring the area and enjoying the fall foliage. We'll definitely be back!”
