This rambling farmhouse has a balanced mix of meticulous restoration with an eccentric flair. Undermountain Farm is a home carefully designed with warmth and spirit. It also has a unique collection of fascinating antiques and collectibles. Enjoy cooking in the state-of-the-art kitchen with your only dilemma being where to eat. You might choose the solarium, surrounded by exotic plants and the sun streaming through the glass; or the patio where you might hear the roar of the waterfall which tumbles down the mountain behind the house after a rainfall, or you could try the formal dining room which still has the original Dutch oven from the 18th century. The veranda is a good choice where you can watch the highland cattle in the meadows. Or you may choose the informal dining area and eat in the luminous kitchen delicately accented with orchids. The hand-crafted cabinetry in the kitchen was all made from one maple tree. This farmhouse has many rooms to enjoy. If you like a large space, then the former stables might suit you. This room, with its high vaulted ceilings and original beams boasts a magnificent stone fireplace, and huge windows that offer a pastoral view of the surrounding meadows. If you prefer a cosy room, then the den is ideal. The antique wood paneling, the big comfy leather chairs and the soothing, ambient feeling will make you want to curl up with a good book in front of the wood stove and forget about the outside world. You might choose the formal living room or the informal living area adjoining the kitchen for a friendly gathering place. This home has six fireplaces and two wood stoves to keep you warm, and there’s also a fire cauldron and grill on the patio.
If you’re staying with friends, you might have to draw straws for the huge master bedroom, where the rising sun illuminates the artfully plastered walls creating a deep orange, radiant light in the morning. The added bonus in the master bathroom with the shower and its floor of river stones and the jacuzzi where you can gaze over the meadows. Those who drew the shorter straws will be happy in the other three bedrooms which have lovely outlooks over the Berkshire Hills and offer a quiet respite for a restful sleep; including the soothing sounds of a seasonal babbling brook.
