                  Owner info

                  About the owner: The home was built in 1973 by The Riley's. They custom designed it along with a noted architect. It was their dream for many years to move from Long Island to 'the country'. They bought 144 acres, built the dream house, and moved to the beautiful Berkshires with their six children. After all the kids moved on to their own lives the house was much too big for two people so it was split it half, hence we have a rental unit. Their is a magical feel to 'The Castle' on the hill. Maybe because of the river that runs underneath it or the serenity around it or the view from the large odd shaped windows...We call it the castle because when the younger children went to school that's what their friends called it.... 'oh you live in that white castle on the hill'. Now it is entrusted to the six children who recently renovated it for a rental income and keep half for their own vacation place. Everything about the land speaks of timelessness and a happy dream come true.

                  Why the Owner Chose Lanesborough:
                  The Berkshires in rural, but not too, sophisticated in a Berkshire way and fun! It doesn't matter what you like to do for your vaction you will find it in the Berkshires...all year long.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  The most unique benefit is the stream that runs under the family room, the architecture and the height and sound of the trees.
