In the mid 19th century, Orson Branch, a carriage maker, built this post-and-beam house for his new bride, Mary Ann. From here, he made the carriages and wagons for his neighbors. If you look at the hand-hewn beams in the bedrooms you can still see his ax marks. His original plank floors still run through the rooms. This home is part of the charming South Egremont Village Historic District and is a short walk to the Egremont Barn (live music), Old Mill Restaurant, Mom's Cafe, the library, post office, and one of the oldest continuously operating one-room schoolhouses (K-1, public). It sits on a large tree-lined lot facing a tree farm so there is a sense of being connected to the village and yet having privacy, and it's wired for high-speed internet. Just 8 mins to Great Barrington.
