Berkshire County in western Massachusetts is no stranger to some pretty spectacular real estate. From historical homes to modern mountain retreats, The Berkshires has a property for every taste.

With proximity to New York City and Boston and a market that boasts far more square footage and significantly less expensive homes, The Berkshires always has hot properties available.

Nothing quite compares to the peace and serenity of a waterfront home in The Berkshires hills. Set amongst the mountains, if you're lucky (or wealthy) enough to score a property that sits on one of The Berkshires' spectacular bodies of water you know the beauty you wake up to every day.

Just recently listed, by William Pitt Sotheby's, this New Marlboro, Massachusetts property situated on Lake Buel is a rare opportunity to own a spectacular contemporary lakefront home with a private beach and dock.

This breathtaking home features four en-suite bedrooms and one-half bath. The main level houses one of the bedrooms and a full bath along with the home's unique gourmet kitchen, dining room, screen porch, and a large family room with a wood-burning fireplace. The second interior level features three en-suite bedrooms as well as a bonus room or gym space, lake views, and ample closet space.

Once outside, the expansive lake view deck features a stone fireplace and hot tub, perfect for outdoor entertaining. Owners also have use of a private association with tennis courts.

This breathtaking resort-style home offers unparalleled craftsmanship, and exceptional amenities, and is sure to impress the most discerning buyer.



LOOK: Here are the best lake towns to live in

Many of the included towns jump out at the casual observer as popular summer-rental spots--the Ozarks' Branson, Missouri, or Arizona's Lake Havasu--it might surprise you to dive deeper into some quality-of-life offerings beyond the beach and vacation homes. You'll likely pick up some knowledge from a wide range of Americana: one of the last remaining 1950s-style drive-ins in the Midwest; a Florida town that started as a Civil War veteran retirement area; an island boasting some of the country's top public schools and wealth-earners right in the middle of a lake between Seattle and Bellevue; and even a California town containing much more than Johnny Cash's prison blues.
