Property description

This historic renovated farmhouse is one of the gems in Lenox. It is surrounded by 15 acres of lawns, gardens, and meadows, and is a short walk to Tanglewood, Kripalu and the Town of Lenox.

The main floor includes double living rooms, one with Steinway grand piano, a library with TV and DVD, powder room, and large dining room with bay windows. The kitchen is new with soapstone counters, a butcher block center island, and windows looking to the garden, meadows and woods.. Appliances are either Bosch or Viking and the refrigerator has thru-door ice and filtered water. The kitchen includes a large family eating area and french doors to the side garden which has a view of Lenox Mountain and an outdoor eating and grill area. Adjacent to the kitchen is the laundry room with washer and dryer.

On the second floor there are five light and airy bedrooms, all recently renovated (1 with queen bed and new private bath, 1 with queen bed and youth bed, and 1 with a full bed and balcony, 2 with single beds) and 2 new hall baths. On the third floor there is a bedroom with 2 twin sized beds. WiFi and central A/C throughout.

It is a short walk to Tanglewood from Broadknolls(the music can be sometimes heard on our porch). The house sits 800' back from the road, affording quiet and privacy.

The farmhouse is ideal for families with children, with lots of room to run and explore. We have a badminton/volley ball green, tetherball, a tree climbing rope, and croquet. The rental includes passes to the local lakefront beach with lifeguards and a changing room/toilet facility.

Also included in the rental are two Tanglewood Friends Passes which provide free Admission for many Tanglewood Music Center recital, chamber and Festival of Contemporary Music performances, discounts for the gift shop and advance registration and discount for talks and walks on the Tanglewood property.
