    Village Houses are Hot: Why You Want to be Close to Town

    Village houses in the tri-corners area are commanding higher prices, with sales records being set for walkable centers like Millerton, Salisbury, Great Barrington and Millbrook.

    The demand is fueled by weekenders and older couples who value being able to walk to the coffee shop, post office, bank, library or the movies over the privacy of more rural country properties. These buyers also are interested in becoming an active part of the community, and in having friendly neighbors who help watch over their homes and maybe water plants while they’re away. No security systems are required. There are other pluses, like municipal water and sewer systems, streetlights and sidewalks.

    Village homes situated on small lots are often less expensive to buy, with lower tax assessments than rural properties. Village houses can be easier to maintain, with less snow plowing and grass mowing, but there's still room for a vegetable garden and even a swimming pool. Older village homes with charm also are valued by many buyers even if renovation may be required.

      Summer Fun: Sharon Playhouse 2019

      One of our favorite things about summer is that our local theater schedule picks back up. 

      The Sharon Playhouse draws crowds from near and far to see their impressive performances. It's time to mark your calendar for 2019, see what's coming up, below: 

      Crazy For You | June 21 - July 7: Crazy For You is a zany rich - boy - meets hometown-girl romantic comedy.  It tells the story of young New York banker Bobby Child, who is sent to Deadrock, Nevada, to foreclose on a rundown theatre. In Deadrock, Bobby falls for spunky Polly Baker, the theater owner’s daughter. But Polly takes an instant dislike to the city slicker, so Bobby vows – through cunning, razzmatazz, and a hilarious case of mistaken identity – to win Polly’s heart and save the theatre. 

      Beauty & The Beast | July 19 - August 4: Beauty and the Beast is the classic story that tells of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped under the spell of an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end and he will be transformed into his former self. But time is running out. If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed to remain enchanted for all eternity.

      Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat | August 9  -25: Audiences around the world adore this first musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice (Evita, Jesus Christ Superstar).  And 2019 celebrates it’s 50th Anniversary! With dazzling sets and costumes and rock concert lighting, this high energy sung through tour of the famous bible story is full of catchy songs, from a parody of French ballads “Those Canaan Days”, to country-western (“One More Angel in Heaven” and even calypso “Benjamin Calypso”, along with the unforgettable classics “Any Dream Will Do” and “Close Every Door” and wildly entertaining dance numbers “Go, Go, Go, Joseph.”

      Nunsense | August 30 - September 4: Nunsense is a hilarious talent show staged by five survivors at the Little Sisters of Hoboken nunnery, the rest of the sisterhood having succumbed to botulism after eating vichyssoise prepared by Sister Julia, Child of God. The remaining "Little Hobos" parade their talents at a variety show staged to raise funds so that the last four of the dearly departed can be buried.

      And don't miss a very special Divas event, July 13 - 14!  Click here for tickets and more info on all the shows
