Although it is within an easy 45 minutes of Interstate 91 and the college hub of Amherst, and an hour and 45 minutes west of Boston, arriving at the 63-acre StoneOak property transports you to a home that offers a remote setting and simple, sustainable living. The hand-crafted house, guest house and other buildings are entirely “off-the-grid”, powered by renewable solar and wood energy. It is a perfect mountain retreat for those looking for the privacy afforded by 8,000 acres of state forest that surround you — more than half of which is a designated Forest Reserve — and the quiet solitude and beautifully designed buildings and landscapes that inspires the creative mind and recharges the spirit.
The main house is post-and-beam construction with a stone exterior, and each building is hand-crafted for both aesthetic appeal and self-sufficiency. The outbuildings boast a simple and durable sustainable design — like a Solviva self-adjusting greenhouse — that along with many other features of Stoneoak are beautifully described in Living Spaces Magazine (see “Little House in Big Woods” at http://www.livingspacesmagazine.com/flipbooks/livingspacessummer11/index.html).
