Across a sweeping one-level layout, this Berkshire County home offers a modern refuge on a whopping 18.46 acres of wooded land.

Built in 2019, 42 West Alford Road in West Stockbridge is on the market for $2,998,000. The contemporary structure includes three bedrooms, three full bathrooms, and one half bathroom. The home’s clean-cut allure is spread out across 2,825 square feet, with expansive windows showing off the mountain views.

The minimalist style is right in line with Resolution: 4 Architecture, the New York City-based firm that designed the home and has been featured in Architectural Digest. The firm’s sustainably-minded practices utilized prefabrication techniques in the design of this home. 

According to RES4, a curving country road paves the way to a carport at the front of the home. The nature views are abundant from the start — a mudroom with custom white oak cabinets looks out to the mountains. There are more views to drink in from the open kitchen and living area, which features a row of floor-to-ceiling windows and a fireplace. A dining nook lies nearby, as well as a spacious screened-in porch that’s heated.

The primary suite is set up to be bathed in natural light, with floor-to-ceiling windows that show off the mountains, clerestory windows populating the other bedroom walls, and a skylight in the bathroom. The two additional bedrooms are outfitted with custom Murphy beds.

The custom features continue in the library, which offers built-in shelving, and a media room that provides a retractable screen as well as surround sound. An interior courtyard comes equipped with an outdoor grill.

The home is listed by Sheila Thunfors and co-listed by Nikki Carchedi, both of Stone House Properties.
