Spectacular Berkshire Property a Short Distance to Tanglewood.  





Spectacular landscaping surrounds the gracious main home of this historic property in Lenox. With a sympathetic melding of the old and the new, the original house was built in the 1830's and added to throughout the years. Today it is a large and comfortable home for gathering and entertaining friends or just escaping the stress of today's world. The first floor of the newer wing is composed of a south facing sun-filled gallery that opens to a living room, music room, kitchen, and one of the solaria. The older wing includes a parlor, formal dining room and a guest bedroom with en suite bath. Upstairs, in the newer wing is a modern master suite that opens to a second solarium tiled completely with the joyous and colorful works of master ceramicist Peter Maberry. The master bath also displays his handiwork. From the principal bedroom suite, halls lead to four bedrooms including another suite with a fireplace, dressing rooms, and bath. Out the doors, brick paths meander through lovely gardens, to the artfully converted barn/guest house and the pool area - far enough from the main house for privacy but close enough for conviviality. Highlighted by a fabulous cone-shaped window the 3200 square foot 'barn' has large living spaces, a kitchen, bar, three bedrooms, two and half baths and sauna. The pool complex is a landscaped haven including a 20' by 40' pool with an 8' by 8' spa en-closure. Approximately 10 acres are fenced and include formal gardens designed by Armand Benedek of Kykuit fame as well as a seasonal waterfall and stream plus woodland walks and wild-flower beds. A 3800 MW solar installation is located on an adjacent field supplying most electricity plus additional financial incentives. An additional four acre building lot is included. 20 acres of conservation land across Under Mountain Road includes access to Par-sons Marsh and additional parking for guests. Offering proximity to Tanglewood and all the comforts of a Berkshire summer estate, the barn/guesthouse has for many years been used by the BSO to house visiting artists and their families."
