Description

There are not many homes that we would jump in a car and drive 2.5 hours across the state to work as buyer agents for, but one day Bill received a call from someone who said. “I am interested in a house in Williamstown and wondering if you could help.”

Bill responded, “The Breuer house?”

“Yes, you know it?”

Turns out she had seen our Modernmass.com Facebook page posting of the article Dwell Magazine had published on their site and was interested in buying it. “Do you work out there?” she asked.

“For that house, I would be glad to.” I welcomed the chance to even have a private tour. You can see the video below. It was a pleasure even to just get away and drive out to the ridiculously charming Williamstown. The house is about a half mile from the school and nearby shops. The Clark is not far past that. Of course, North Adams and MoCA are just a few minutes’ drive. This house sits about a quarter mile down a private drive on old farmland with views of the Berkshire foothills. All that privacy and nature while still tethered to not only civilization, but some of the word’s finest art, the Williamstown Theater Festival, and fine dining.

The approach is breathtaking. The butterfly roof and low-slung profile of Robinson House quickly comes into view even before you pass the 900 s.f. guest house on your left. Once inside, the views from the walls of windows is difficult to capture in words, so we will let the photos do the talking.

We posted in the blog section, with a video (also below) and links to Breuer and others, here.

Gladys Montgomery is the gracious listing agent for William Pitt Sotheby’s. The first four photos by Randy O’Rourke. The amateur ones were shot on my phone. To see all of Randy’s shots and Gladys’ description, click here to her listing post.
