Williams River Retreat, Estate of the Day
Most of the homes I see in the Berkshires town of Great Barrington, Massachusetts are older elegant estates dating back from the area's long history as a summer retreat. This home however, is modern and freshly created. The home is on 120 acres stretching from a ridge to the Williams River. It is set on rock outcroppings and has views of the surrounding woods. A floating roof soars over a cool home of steel, wood and glass. Airiness is the buzzword with this one, it's got huge glass windows, open staircases and clerestory windows designed to let light flood the clean, bare space. The property includes many decks, a pergola, two-bedroom guesthouse and a twenty-five meter lap pool. It is listed at $8.5 million.
