Take the back road short cut to the Tanglewood parking lot past the winding river through the hills and valleys. Berkshires have long been known as a cultural destination. Now, longtime arts and culture heavyweights like Tanglewood in Lenox and MASS MoCA in North Adams are being joined by an explosion of smaller galleries, and the shops and services that come along with them. Meanwhile, the food scene plays to the area’s strengths — farm-fresh produce, artisanal cheeses and pasture-raised meats. Farmers’ markets from tiny to huge take over parking lots and fields on weekend mornings.
Year Purchased: 1985
About the owner: Bob and Karen Clydesdale bought Morewood from the city in the 1980s while living in the Berkshires. Karen spent three years converting the building from the dirt up with new wide plank floors to the new roof to drag it into the 21st century while preserving the historical exterior and enhancing the grounds and interior ambiance.
Why the Owner Chose Pittsfield, MA, USA:
Morewood School is located in the center of Berkshire County with a long historical connection to the old Pittsfield families such as the Morewoods, Holmes and Melvilles. The new interior and preserved exterior provides an uncommon comfort level and access to the year round attractions of Western Mass.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Minutes to Tanglewood, Jacob's Pillow, Shaker Village, Norman Rockwell Museum, Shakespeare and Berkshire Theatre Festivals, Berkshire Opera House, Pittsfield Country Club, Cranwell Golf Course and Spa, Baseball Museum, Wahconah Baseball Park, Lenox and Great Barrington antique shopping, fine dining throughout the County, boating and fishing on many lakes. Located at the base of Bousquet Mountain ski resort and a short drive to Jiminy Peak and other down hill and cross country ski areas. Located two hours from Boston and NYC and only eight miles north of the last exit on the Mass Turnpike, Morewood is the perfect Berkshire vacation spot.
