Stockbridge house description

THE PERFECT house for a large family, or several families to share!! Designed by NYC architect, and built for several generations of his own family, this house is designed for both fun and relaxation. The concept was to build a luxury cabin in the woods, and the end product is a series of modern cabin-like structures that are loosely connected by glass and stone passageways that evoke the feeling of passing through the outside, without ever leaving the comforts of home.

Less than two miles from Tanglewood, this house has a fantastic location for whatever your interests are in the Berkshires, whether they be outdoors or in.

If you rent this home in summer,you will have rights to the private and lovely Beachwood Beach, and you will have free, unlimited use of the owners canoe, kayak, and the neccessary accessories like life jackets, oars etc.... in addition to the endless choice of activities all over the area. If you are renting the house in winter, and can drag yourself away from the fireplace, you will be close to Butternut, Bousquet, and Jiminy Peak alpine ski areas, as well as endless X-Country trails. Fall is perfect for leaf-peeping, hiking and exploring the amazing small towns dotting the entire county.

Hang out and enjoy the peace and quiet, or fill your day to the brim with all that is available in the four unique seasons of the Berkshires.

The first, main building houses the Great Room, Dining, Kitchen, Breakfast Nook, Mudroom, and Laundry Room. Anchored by a masonry stone fireplace this space is the heart of the home. The modern kitchen with stainless steel appliances is fully equipped for whatever cooking you have in mind. Off of the kitchen is a small deck with table and chairs, as well as a gas grill. Outside the Great Room double doors is a courtyard created by the placement of the cabins. It includes another small seating area and a beautifully landscaped surround. From every room in the house, you will see the lawn and gardens which meld into the woods beyond.

Another cabin houses the Master bedroom, with king sized bed, and his/hers separate bathrooms. 'Hers' has a jacuzzi tub, 'his' a stall shower. This is a private and romantic room with views towards the woods.

The third cabin houses two bedrooms each with a queen sized bed, and two full bathrooms, one with a tub and the other with a shower. At the end of this cabin, there is the much loved bunkroom that holds six people, each in a twin sized bed with it's own window and wall sconce for private reading! This is a crowd pleaser of a room for the little ones! Above these three spaces, on the second floor is the media room, which has an L-shaped sofa, flat screen TV, and games area.

Below these bedrooms is the lower level that contains two more bedrooms, with a shared bathroom. One bedroom has a king bed, the other has twins, that could also be made up as a king. The shared bath has a shower and two sinks.

The last cabin houses the garage, and above the garage is a screened porch which can only be described as 'tree-house' like. There is comfortable seating, for reading, napping and also a dining table up on high. It's a very separate area from the rest of the house, and perfect for those looking for a quiet getaway.

The property is 20 acres, and is mostly wooded. Just into the woods a short distance is a campfire area with natural seating.

                  Owner info

                  Why the Owner Chose Stockbridge:
                  Our family has been spending time in the Berkshires for many years, and in 2000, when this amazing property in the heart of Stockbridge came on the market, we just could not resist the temptation to build our own retreat. We live our 'real' life outside of Manhattan, and access from our area is just as easy as it is from the Boston area, and all of CT. There is something in the Berkshires for everyone, whether you like culture, the outdoors, summer, winter, fall or just sitting by a fire reading and playing games with your family.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We have it all! Biking, hiking, walking, nature preserves, skiing, theatre, music, shopping, antiquing, outlets, craft shows, galleries, spas, you name it!
