Few places capture the beauty of fall quite like The Berkshires. The region in western parts of Massachusetts and northwest Connecticut is known for its pastoral beauty and country charms. And today, we focus on two of its offerings in our latest Splurge vs. Steal.
Both are in Massachusetts with prime Berkshires locales. But their price points? They are miles apart! Take a look and see for yourself why so many people dream of calling the Berkshires home.

Steal: Richmond Retreat On Five-Wooded-Acres For $750K
This is a steal of a deal in Richmond! Not only do you get five-heavily-wooded-acres and an abundance of fall foliage. You’ll enjoy a darling 1970s home with plenty of character. This includes a four-bedroom, three-full-and-one-half-bathroom abode wrapped in natural wood and stone.
The light and bright home sits near the popular towns of Lenox and West Stockbridge for arts, culture, and entertainment. But we are loving how cozy this place would be for evenings at home in the fall. From the stone fireplace in the living area to the vaulted ceilings, massive deck, and screened-in sunroom, every detail invites you to live comfortably inside and out.
We love the wooded views and charming country kitchen. There is also a fully finished lower level for the kids. Outside, it’s an enchanting atmosphere surrounded by fall color on the deck. Make it a vacation retreat to remember. Your Berkshires getaway awaits!
