Monterey chateau / country house description

This newly renovated, waterfront home and property uniquely combines an ideal Berkshire location with privacy, land and comfort.

Its size, layout and amenities can provide either the comfort for relaxation and can be an ideal setting for large families.

On the first floor, guests will find a beautiful living room, designed for relaxing, playing games, or watching movies. The centerpiece of the room is a fieldstone fireplace. The first floor also features a dining room that seats 10, a gourmet kitchen and a wrap around outdoor porch.

On the second floor, guests will find a master bedroom and bath, two separate guest rooms with additional bathrooms, and a bunk room designed for children that can sleeps six.

Outside, a large barn, originally built in the 19th century, over looks the property. Guests will have the unique opportunity to enjoy both a beautiful lake and 4 acres of property with specially designed gardens and paths that lead to private access to Lake Garfield.

The Lake side of the property includes a wonderful private deck with a masterful view, a private dock with canoes, a floating swimming dock and lots of water toys.

It should be noted that Lake Garfield is the most beautiful lake in the Berkshires because it is the only one managed for weed control. The water is lowered each winter to kill off the weeds, so the water is clear and weed free.

The property is located in the quaint village of Monterey, MA, which has a town beach, playground and wonderfully kind people.

The property is 15 minutes from the restaurants, galleries, shops, concerts and theaters of Great Barrington (rated one of “the coolest small towns in the U.S.A” by Budget Travel magazine).

The property is also 15 minutes from the towns of Lenox, Stockbridge, and Lee. In the summer, you can enjoy Tanglewood, Jacob’s Pillow, Shakespeare & Company, the Berkshire Theater Festival, Williamstown Theater Festival, the Norman Rockwell Museum, Edith Wharton’s home and numerous other cultural attractions.

The house is quick drive to top-notch hiking and outdoor spots such as the Appalachian Trail and Beartown State Forest.

In the Winter, the house is located only minutes from the ski areas of Butternut, Otis Ridge, and Catamount.
