Property description

Enjoy your vacation in a beautiful historic house located in the heart of the Berkshires. Located two and a quarter hours north of New York City, this circa-1770s center chimney colonial will charm and delight your family and guests. 88 acres of land with views of Mt. Washington and Mount Everett promises privacy, peace and quiet. Search 'Berkshire Winter Rental' on Vimeo to see a winter video of the house.

With 3100 sq. ft of wood floors and elegant decor, this spacious house was renovated with two additions: sunroom with master bedroom above, and the gourmet kitchen. The original portion of the house includes a den with fireplace and 42" plasma tv with satellite surround sound home theater system. Built-in bookshelves have loads of great reading and an eclectic DVD library that should have something for everyone. The Parlor is a wood-paneled room with wood-burning stove and door opening up to a small deck with adirondack chairs for lounging. This is a great room for entertaining. Connecting to the parlor is the traditional dining room which has a table that can seat 10 and a fireplace.

In the Master Suite, wake up to beautiful mountain views particularly spectacular during fall foliage season, and go to bed relaxed after taking a soak in the private master bath jacuzzi. Vaulted ceilings, cherry hardwood floors, and walk-around deck make this room a relaxing retreat. All bedrooms feature Ipod docking stations, down comforters and fans. All bathrooms feature hair dryers, robes and plush towels.

Bedrooms: In addition to the spacious master, there are three guestrooms with great architectural details like original wood beams and hardwood floors. The upstairs landing with skylights and gas stove features a day bed perfect for reading in the afternoon.
Kitchen: The gourmet kitchen features top-notch equipment like a Viking eight-burner stove and Subzero refrigerator and is fully-stocked with cookware, utensils, barware, dishware and other essential cooking tools. Hook up your IPod to the kitchen stereo system and whistle while you cook! A secondary kitchen with a second dishwasher makes entertaining for larger groups (and cleaning up!) easy.

Flower gardens are in abundance and you will be enticed to the hammock to unwind and soak in the incredible mountain views. After playing a round of tennis on the clay court, enjoy a glass of iced-tea on the outdoor porch furniture at the tennis house bar. Or, plan your summer bbq with friends and family gathered around the teak patio furniture with umbrella.

Other amenities include: two fireplaces, wood-burning stove, gas stove, air conditioning in the tv room, master suite, sunroom, and kitchen. WI-FI, cable HDTV, DVD, VCR, stereo, CDs, Jacuzzi tub, microwave, dishwasher, linens, washer/dryer, and three-story, two-car garage and ping-pong game room on the 2nd story.

Smoking is **strictly not permitted.**

Keywords: skiing, snow, fall foliage, tanglewood, berkshires, mountains, hiking

Our Welcome Book features a list of local information related to: antiques shopping, dining, Berkshire Theatre Festival, Tanglewood, and art exhibits in the area.

SWIMMING: In the summer months, a refreshing dip is a must for cooling off. Here are some ideas:

Green River Water Hole: amazing spot! (2.5 miles north from S. Egremont on Route 23)

Lake Mansfield: a 40 acre body of water less than a mile from downtown Great Barrington. The lake has historically been a site for recreation, social gatherings, and solitude. Generations of swimmers have enjoyed its cool waters. A small beach with lifeguard and roped off swimming area is great for families with children.
