Property description

Step into the large, airy foyer of this expansive 4 bedroom/3 bath country home and, instantly, you realize it’s all about the light. Situated on 5 rolling acres on an open, entirely mown hillside, the 3200 square foot getaway is architecturally eclectic inside and out, somewhere between contemporary and traditional. An open floor plan features casual rooms bathed in bright, natural light that rarely fail to elicit the loveliest feeling. The house also has central air conditioning.

A well-appointed master suite occupies the entire second story, offering dramatic sunrise and sunset views and a wonderful private space to get away. Luxurious features are plentiful — and may very well have you thinking about an earlier bedtime! The room has a tiled wood-burning fireplace, brand new pillow top king size bed, TV, DVD Player, vaulted ceiling, skylights, soaring palladian window and a balcony overlooking the east meadow and distant forest of trees lining the property (a really perfect spot to relax with your morning coffee and take in all the beauty that surrounds you). For bath time luxury, the spacious master bath features a 2-person whirlpool tub, large walk-in shower, double vanity and separate toilet room. It actually has a built-in ironing board, too!

Bedrooms on the first floor offer multiple sleeping arrangements; the largest includes a queen size bed, TV and bathroom en suite. All are with contemporary furnishings and newly restored wood floors.

Family living and summer entertaining flow seamlessly. The quite sizable living room-cum-dining area is a gallery-like space with a marble wood-burning fireplace, plenty of large windows and French sliders leading out to a cantilevered deck that runs along the south end of the house.

A charming, bright fully equipped kitchen is open to the French slider-flanked family room where there is a stocked bookcase, large flat screen TV w/digital cable, DVD player and stereo system.

The kitchen has sliders as well, which lead to an 18’ X 35’ back deck. The deck can also be accessed through the entrance foyer. Lots of room to grill, to party, to breakfast, to lunch — and to dine under the stars. But a venture off the deck to picnic in the midst of the large rolling field high above the road or under the tree just beyond, is pure magic!

Richmond couldn’t be a more perfect location to choose as your vacation home base, and not only because of its noted bucolic beauty, hiking and biking opportunities, and convenient distance to all major roads. It occupies a south-central spot in the county, which makes it a breeze to visit any of the major Berkshire attractions (Tanglewood is a 5-7 minute drive) and many of its best kept secrets, too! All while being just enough away from the maddening crowd.

Keywords: Private, rural, spacious, light-filled, open hillside, large rolling fields and lawns, perfectly and centrally located, near all Berkshire attractions, 5 miles to Tanglewood
