Property description

This turn of turn-of-the-century renovated colonial defines country elegance, providing guests with a secluded respite from city living less than a mile from Lenox town center. Situated off a private drive, guests enjoy 3 acres of manicured lawns, endless gardens, a small orchard and a secluded pool area. Take a refreshing dip day or night, the lighted pool, heated by solar cover welcomes swimmers at any hour. Don’t forget to try out the ‘big swing’ in the front yard for the child in each of us!

This house boasts five bedrooms and 4 ½ bathrooms, including a master suite with skylights, private entryway and deck on the first-floor. For casual meals, delight in the spacious eat-in farmhouse style kitchen, with post and beam ceilings, fireplace, and large windows which provide soothing natural light and garden views in all weather. For formal entertaining use the separate dining room with adjoining porch. Avid readers can peruse the shelves of the library and study, both rooms offer cozy spaces and plenty of books for vacation reading. The musically inclined will appreciate the music nook and Steinway Piano. The large formal living room provides plenty of seating and special space for grown-up time. Upstairs find four bedrooms (1 king, 2 queens, and a full), 3 bathrooms, a laundry room and a great room. The spacious great room provides plenty of open space and comfy seating, cathedral ceilings, a fireplace and large exterior windows overlooking the manicured lawns. Enjoy a movie, your favorite TV show or just put your feet up and relax.

While not at home and relaxing take advantage of easy access to many of the Berkshires’ most famed attractions. Canyon Ranch, Shakespeare & Co. and Edith Wharton The Mount are an easy walk, less than half a mile from the property. Tanglewood is a short 3.5 mile drive.
