House Lust: A Sweet Cabin in the Cumberland Woods is on the Market

A winding country drive leads to this cozy abode set on more than four wooded acres.

What, you might wonder, is an authentic log cabin — seriously; this home is made from tree trunks — with not-insignificant acreage doing in peak suburbia?

It’s offering the best of both worlds, that’s what. Because, it turns out, you don’t need to forsake humanity for privacy. You can straddle the line between social interaction and “Introvert: social distancing before the CDC told us to.” You can have your cozy Berkshires house without the car trip. You can live on a street dotted with old farmhouses and nature trails yet be less than a mile from shopping, schools and the highway. You can, as they say, have your cake and eat it too.

The house was custom-built in 1988 and has a host of time-tested features. A couple of porches, a stone fireplace and a great room with exposed beams evoke the country. (Jewel-tone carpeting, on the other hand, evokes the ’80s.)

“It sincerely is a unique property,” says listing agent Kathy Farrell with RE/MAX Town and Country, “land for animals — a barn for horses even.”

And, saying what we’ve all been thinking, Farrell adds: “It’s like a grown-up Lincoln log house!”

Here’s your House Lust:
