Overview

About the property

4 Bedroom 3.5 Bath, Minutes to town and shops

This modern farmhouse has all the charm of New England along with all of the modern amenities you would desire. Less than a mile into downtown Lenox, its just enough country while being convenient to all of the local attractions and shopping. Drive down the long pebble driveway to a quiet and serene setting. Ample parking for visitors and plenty of room to stow bikes/kayak/boat etc. Enter into a large open foyer with huge picture windows over looking the forest. If you like to cook you will love the inviting commercial kitchen with 6 burner gas stove along with dual oven. The dining table can seat 8 comfortably with room to grow, or sit at the granite island and watch the chef do his or her thing. Enjoy your morning coffee in the glass enclosed porch, open all the windows and enjoy the fresh air and landscaped scenery. It is equally as enchanting at night or during a thunderstorm, this is one of our favorite rooms during the summer months. The first floor also has a half bath off the foyer and a laundry room/ pantry off the kitchen with secondary refrigerator. Enjoy the outdoors under the cedar pergola on the stone patio with comfortable lounge furniture surrounded by perennial gardens or bask in the sun in one of the lounge chairs. Huge yard with plenty of space for running around and games with the kids.

Every room in the house has large windows over looking the wooded surroundings, bringing in plenty of light but also giving a sense of serenity and privacy. Included on the 1st floor is a TV room with flat screen and full movie channels with apple TV. Off the kitchen is a large living room with wood burning fireplace to stay cozy in the winter and access to outdoor patios for easy summer entertaining. A full functioning office with WIFI, printer and large writing desk for your laptop... the first floor is also equipped with surround sound speakers to enjoy your music (Sonos system installed).

The 2nd floor has 3 large bedrooms and 1 master suite and 3 full bathrooms. The master suite is separate from the other 3 bedrooms, with 500 sq feet of living space including a king bed, sitting area, dressing room, master bath with his and her sinks, soaking-tub, marble shower and private water closet. Two of the guest bedrooms share 1 large guest bath which has double vanity sinks and a large soaking tub and separate shower. Both rooms are spacious and have double beds and one has a TV. The 3rd Bedroom has a king size bed and its own bathroom with subway tile & rain shower, as well as a flat screen TV. The house has central A/C.

About jonathan molk

I live in this home year round and take loving care of it and it's surroundings.

jonathan molk purchased this chateau / country house in 2001

Why jonathan molk chose Lenox

If you like all the summer action but crave privacy at the same time, then this property is for you. Just 5 minutes from Tanglewood, 5 minutes to Bousquet Ski Mountain, and 1 mile to the center of Lenox for shopping, dining and local fresh marketplace. Drive down the long pebble driveway and you are in total peace, quiet & privacy...the best of both worlds!

What makes this chateau / country house unique

What made me fall in love with this home was the drive up to the entrance. It is a hidden oasis at the end of the road.

Lovely, Green Relaxing Country Luxury

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I relaxed, along with our calm Golden Retriever, at this beautifully- and fully-appointed country home in its green, flowering garden setting. We enjoyed sharing our time with two sets of visiting friends, lounging on the front porch and screened porch and cooking meals in the gourmet kitchen. The owner was helpful and responsive to a few minor items that came up during our two week stay, while respecting our privacy. All-in-all a wonderful spot for getting to cultural events, museums and local restaurants.

Beautiful home, first rental to exceed my expectations!

  • 5 of 5

This is true - this is the first house rental ever to exceed my expectations. The setting is lovely, the house was pristine and well provisioned. We had 4 couples and three children and the house easily accommodated all of us, feeling comfortable and roomy. All sheets and towels were really high quality, and the house decor is lovely. The sound system made for great music while we were cooking, lounging, eating. Jonathan was super responsive and a wonderful host. We would definitely stay here again. Well worth the money.

Couldn't ask for more

  • 5 of 5

A lovely house, well-appointed inside and out. Fantastic kitchen with spacious dining areas. Gorgeous gardens. Multiple areas to curl up with a good book or to sit with friends. State of the art electronics to fill the house with music. Immaculately kept, and the owner was extremely responsive. Minutes from downtown Lenox with easy access to roads leading throughout the Berkshires. Couldn't have asked for more-didn't want to go home!

Perfect Lenox retreat

  • 5 of 5

This house is simply beautiful. Off the beaten path but minutes from Lenox, Tanglewood and environs,this spacious home is ideal. The rooms are all tastefully furnished with private wooded views. Fantastic state of the art kitchen was perfect for home cooked meals. Everything was new, fresh and elegant. Would. Love to come back next year.

Great Summer Rental!

  • 5 of 5

This house is beautiful and in a prime location. My husband and I have been traveling to Lenox for years to go hiking and visit Tanglewood, Jacob's Pillow, etc- this summer we brought along our 2 year old and 4 month old little girls and our nanny- and this house was the PERFECT place for us to stay. It is beautiful, clean, well appointed and well located. The kitchen is spacious and well set up as is the entire house. We loved it and would definitely stay there again!

summer rental

  • 5 of 5

my wife toddler and I just finished our wonderful 5 week rental at this beautiful property. Not only was the home and grounds even more special than we could have imagined or in the pictures - the owner could not have been more helpful and friendly. he was hands on in every way and even did the grass cutting himself and was always reachable at anytime. The kitchen was fully stocked and had everything you could imagine and the master suite was large and very comfortable. the computer/office room was very helpful as I did some work from home. we spent much time outdoors on the patio and would watch the family of turkeys who would visit each day and we even shot some hoops in the driveway. First class all the way and we would strongly recommend this property.

Barry H and family.
