The historic Sisson house, set on banks of the Konkapot River, was built in the late 1700's as Mill River's first schoolhouse. Years later, John Sisson built and donated a new school to the town and in exchange he was given the house, which he then moved across the street to where it now sits at the site of the original 1750 grist mill. The stone foundations of that mill are part of the property and surround the picturesque waterfall which used to power the waterwheel. This spacious home is a 5 bedroom, 3 bath with a center hall plan sitting on 1 acre of riverfront and has a swimming pond above the waterfall. It boasts 2 fireplaces, a primary suite, double car garage, and is perfect for entertaining with its wraparound screened in porch, salt water hot tub, and multiple entertaining and dining areas. The inviting kitchen, with vaulted ceilings and exposed beams, has soapstone counters, a Viking range and pantry with wine fridge. The property is a tranquil oasis less than 15 minutes from Great Barrington and 10 minutes to Butternut Ski Resort. Enjoy waking up to the peaceful sound of the river outside the primary bedroom and spend your days rafting down the lazy river until you end up in your backyard. Bathe in the waterfall then dry off in front of the outdoor fire pit or either of the two indoor fireplaces. This is a once in a lifetime kind of place! Key features - Available furnished!
