A perfect cottage within Salisbury proper. Originally built in 1842 and lovingly restored and updated while maintaining all the wonderful charm and character of this antique home; wide plank pine floors, a renovated kitchen with soapstone counters and hand milled shelves by a local craftsman. Vaulted ceilings in the living room with skylights pouring in natural light; a freestanding gas stove in the living room for cold New England winters, all on a corner lot. This property boasts a newly fenced, spacious yard, with giant glacial rocks, mountain views and even a peek at Salisbury’s famous ski jump which was founded in 1925 and sits directly across the street. Head up to the “Top of the Rocks Cocktail Lounge;” a protected area surrounded on all sides by glacial rocks, perfect for summer evenings with a roaring firepit and friends. There is a 2 car garage with its own separate driveway that could potentially be converted into an apartment, guest house or an artist’s studio. There is a large master bedroom downstairs with a renovated full bathroom down the hall; bright and light with white subway tile and simple black penny tile on the floor. There are two bedrooms and another full bath upstairs. You will also love the separate entrance to a spacious mudroom with washer and dryer. This home is close to to the Appalachian trail and across the street from the entrance to the bike/walk rail trail which takes you into the village of Lakeville or.. walk or ride your bike to town and enjoy coffee or lunch at the White Hart Inn or Sweet Williams Coffee Shop. Surrounded by amazing restaurants, culture, skiing, hiking, 25 minutes to Great Barrington and just minutes to Millerton, NY. This is a very special year round or second home just full of history and charm. It is truly an honest New England cottage.
