About the Property
4 Bedrooms + Den, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)
Originally utilized as the carriage house for the neighboring 1881 mansion, this home is upscale, luxurious and sharply designed. It is located on a hilltop adjacent to the center of historic Lenox.
The property offers spectacular opportunities for spending time with friends and family. A spacious, fully-equipped kitchen serves as the backdrop for entertaining and relaxing. Just outside, the large back porch offers open and unobstructed views of the Berkshires and is perfect for sipping cocktails. Down the hilltop, meandering stone and grass pathways lead to "The Secret Garden" -- a place of refuge, solace and contemplation.
The home serves as the owner's personal retreat and vacation home. It has been totally remodeled and professionally decorated -- mixing historical features with modern amenities and conveniences. The Secret Garden was carved out of the hillside over a period of several years and is a result of the owner's personal and ongoing labor of love.
Adjacent to the home are two of the famed 'Berkshire Cottages' (actually exquisite mansions), miles of development restricted woods extending from the back porch and lawn – creating an oasis of green space in the center of the town of Lenox. The historic Ventfort Hall is across the street, and shops, restaurants, galleries, coffee shops and Shakespeare and Company are all within just a 2 minute walk.
The home has 4 bedrooms, each with its own private bath. 1 king, 2 queens and 1 full bed. Three of the bedrooms have flat screen TVs with satellite and cable and high speed wireless internet throughout. A large, bright, modern fully equipped kitchen with stone countertops, an island and GE Monogram stainless steel appliances. The dining area has a magnificent custom dining room table of Madagascar ebony that can extend to seat up to 12. An outdoor propane grill is included. AC and heat with 6 separate zones. Approximately 3000 sq ft. The lawn is manicured with beautiful professional landscaping and flowers.
Pets Allowed: The home has a doggie door that opens to a very large fenced in yard. The owner will allow 1 or 2 well behaved and house-trained small or medium sized dogs. No puppies. No cats.

About the owner: We created this as our personal summer family residence and seasonal vacation home.

Why the Owner Chose Lenox, Lenox, MA, USA:
The Berkshires have so much to see and do, and Lenox is the heart, which is why so many of the 19th century industrialists built their summer 'cottages' here. With Tanglewood, Shakespeare and Co, Jacob's Pillow, museums, shops, galleries, Canyon Ranch, countryside for hiking, biking, skiing, water-sports, it's an amazing place to enjoy life. In the fall, the area comes alive with all the brilliant foliage colors, arts, crafts, and harvest festivals. Take a scenic drive in the country or hike, bike or golf. Fine dining at area establishments featuring the seasons delights.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Nearly everything is within walking distance, or a very short drive.
