Three bedroom house in small college town with access to cultural activities and the bucolic countryside of New England
Our home is a three bedroom house with an ample deck, spacious yard, and in-ground swimming pool, which we open in June. There is a garden, compost bin, and tool shed out back. Our house has three bedrooms, two upstairs across from each other and one downstairs. The Master bedroom and one of the guest rooms have Queen-sized beds. The other guest room has a full-size bed. Our family room has a futon couch and could serve as a fourth bedroom. There is a full bathroom upstairs with shower and tub and a full bathroom downstairs with shower and tub. Our kitchen includes lots of counter space in addition to the usual appliances. There is a an island with stools and a large cutting board. We have a separate dining room with a table that comfortably seats 6 off the kitchen that is quite ample and opens up to our deck via French doors. We have a large living room with a sectional sofa, rocking chairs, and a very efficient and low-polluting wood stove. We have a family room that looks out to the backyard that has an entertainment center with a large flat screen TV and exercise equipment (an elliptical and a stationary bicycle). Our garage holds 2 cars. Our electricity comes from solar energy.

We are on a quiet country road but are within 15 minutes of downtown Northampton where there is an abundant variety of restaurants, outdoor cafes, music venues, and galleries. Downtown is very vibrant with lots to do and various festivals during the summer months. Northampton is also the home of Smith College, a small and highly regarded liberal arts college for women. On the idyllic Smith Campus, there is a wonderful art museum, a trail around Paradise Pond, and beautiful botanical gardens and plant conservatory. The college often has free lectures and classical music concerts. Northampton is connected by bike paths to the surrounding towns. The rail trail (which is also for pedestrians) can be picked up about 1.5 miles from our house and is about a half hour bike ride into downtown.
We are both in our 60s. Rachael is a retired academic librarian and David, who is still working, teaches at a local University and has a private practice as a psychologist. We have three adult children, all married or in relationships, and three grandchildren - with two more on the way! They are living in Boston, California, and Louisville, KY.
We run an airbnb an have enjoyed meeting people from all over. We both love to travel and have been to Costa Rica, Mexico, Canada, many countries in western Europe, and several islands in the Caribbean. We have been all over the U.S., including New Orleans, California, and Alaska.
