Lenox farmhouse description

Josiah Loomis, when he owned this property in the early 1800's, could never have imagined what it would look like 200 years later. His 3 room farmhouse has grown into a 2,200 square foot beauty, with all the amenities 21st Century people want. The stone patios look out on flower gardens, woods and landscaped fields, and the road, known in the 1820's as the Massachusetts Turnpike, is a dead-end street, with no more than 10 cars passing on an average day.

Note: The Josiah Loomis Homestead is available for long-term rental. Contact Carl at (413) 329-3052.
