Why we have a crush on this property:

If you happen to be shopping for a home based only on places with prime leaf peeping, this dwelling should be top of your list. Western Mass is a region that, any time I visit, makes me feel like I’m stepping into “Bridge to Terabithia” or some other story about a small town with a magical forest. As for Lenox specifically, catch it on Travel and Leisure’s list of the 21 best places to see fall foliage across the U.S.

If only this home had big windows to appreciate the changing leaves from inside. Oh wait! It very much does. Its mid-century modern design prioritizes bringing the outdoors in, and keeps the interior beautifully simple. Pale wooden floors, an elegant mantle-free fireplace, and warm paneled walls give the living room an elevated cabin feel. Wide windows look directly into the surrounding trees, making it look like you’re living in a treehouse. From the bottom of the sloping hill it sits on, the low-profile home is a wooden rectangle with a red front door all but ensconced by the surrounding nature which is mere weeks from bursting into a kaleidoscope of autumn colors.

At 880-square-foot and on an acre of land, this house is the ideal size for hunkering down during cold nights and venturing out to enjoy all that the Berkshires have to offer.
