Property Details
This architecturally striking contemporary residence and accessory dwelling offers a spellbinding vantage of fields, forests and distant hills set on 3.5 acres in North Amherst. The main house has all the attributes of a traditional house: a dining room, kitchen, screened 3-season room, living room, library, bedrooms and baths, each offering a unique experience that transcends traditional house designs. The main house features 4 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths. A second structure comprises two discrete spaces under one timber-framed roof. The first is a lofty studio/work shop with garage doors. A two-level apartment/guest house forms the other half. Extensive professionally landscaped grounds present serene and inspiring vistas. A level play yard and in-ground pool are tucked in the back and side of the house.
About Amherst, MA

Amherst is nestled amongst lush hillsides and mountains creating stunning views. It is characterized by its vibrant and copious agricultural landscape, providing the community with delicious produce at Saturday farmer’s markets on the common and also at a number of roadside stands. However, the main industry of Amherst has shifted from a farming community to one of education; it is home to the main campus of University of Massachusetts as well as the private colleges Amherst College and Hampshire College.

Downtown Amherst is a mix of culture, past and present, making it one of New England’s most unique and exciting destinations. Whether you’re looking for shopping, dining, or enjoying a park, Amherst has what you’re looking for.
