I pass by this lovely home when I travel south and when I rode by it last week I was amazed to see a for sale sign out front. It's located near the infamous Sweet Briar College and I wonder if it's owner is somehow associated with school which is in so much flux. There's not much in Amherst outside of the college. But the home is lovely to look at. See the listing here.
