Canaan house description

Surrounded by gentle rolling hills and beautiful vistas, this exquisite example of modern architecture stands proud on fourteen lush acres. The home is warmly decorated with carefully selected antiques that offer the feeling of simple airy elegance. The house is filled with light and a peaceful atmosphere. Winter season renters can enjoy cozy radiant floor heat as well as the special amenities of a full dance studio, piano, wood-burning fireplace, and a Zen-inspired meditation tower. In the summer, this lovely Berkshire home is surrounded by plentiful flower gardens. The house is 20 minutes away from Tanglewood, and 30 minutes from Jiminy Peak for winter skiing. The house is in close proximity to New York City and Boston---- 21/2 hours by car to both cities.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1996

                  About the owner: I am a choreographer and artist in New York City. My late husband who designed the house was an architect.

                  Why the Owner Chose Canaan:
                  My husband and I loved the gentle, peaceful country and the culture of the Berkshires, especially Tanglewood and Jacob's Pillow. It is private and rural but not isolated at all. There is gorgeous land all around to walk through..... and one feels intimately connected to nature.
