This charming Walker Street Cape Cod style house is nestled in the middle of the Berkshires in beautiful Lenox. The property is located within walking distance to some of the areas most enjoyable sites. Just 0.3 miles to the center of the historic Lenox square, you will walk to shops, galleries, restaurants, a grocery store, ice cream and coffee shops, the bus station, and even the Shakespeare Theatre grounds. It's a 1.6 mile walk to Tanglewood and just 1.2 miles to Kripalu. By car please visit the Hilltop Orchard and Winery in Richmond (8.4 miles), and the historic Red Lion Inn and Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge (6.5 miles). Cranwell Resort and Spa (1.1 miles) is just one of several locations in the area to retreat for golf and spa services. Cross country and downhill skiing, as well as snowboarding are enjoyed during the winter months at several area ski resorts (from Bousquet in Pittsfield 5.2 to Magic Mountain in Vermont 81.2 miles). If canoeing, kayaking, swimming and waterskiing are what you enjoy you'll find yourself at the Stockbridge Bowl (Lake Mahkeenac). If you prefer to play in the sun you'll find the public Town Beach at the southeast corner of the Bowl. Please use the public boat launch to access the water with your water craft. If you're interested in horseback riding, Undermountain Farm holds week long summer riding day camps, ages 6-14. Undermountain Farm is just 1.5 miles from the gates of Tanglewood in Lenox. If you prefer to keep your feet on the ground hiking trails of various difficulty levels are plentiful in the Berkshires. There is something for everyone here in Lenox and the surrounding towns.
Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: I'm Lori Signer, currently residing New York. I'm the mother of three daughters, a terrier mix and a retired thoroughbred. My first trip to the Berkshires was in 2009 to attend a series of concerts and events at Tanglewood. I had a wonderful experience at Tanglewood and exploring the surrounding towns and sites. I found the people to be friendly and welcoming and I knew I would one day end up here.
Why the Owner Chose Lenox, Lenox, MA, USA:
I began looking for a vacation home in the spring of 2012 and purchased the Walker Street house in late summer. This location allows me the convenience of being able to walk to town and Tanglewood, beautiful drives to neighboring towns, and access to highways that can get me anywhere I need to be.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This house has a warm inviting feel to it that is essential to good living. It's cozier square footage allows for little daily maintenance, and the ease of movement in the living areas is very desirable. The space lives so easy and comfortably. The yard is perfect for gathering.
