Continuing out the back door you will find a bluestone patio with outdoor dining, next to gardens with a bubbling fountain and a large hot tub spa. There is a third porch off the kitchen (the door most often used) to sit and sip coffee, read the paper and watch the birds. All of these outdoor spaces have wi-fi and are surrounded by lush gardens, a large lawn and privacy.

The first floor also includes the dining room with large sideboard and two pairs of french doors leading to the eat-in kitchen and the living room, and the cozy living room with its library wall and 122 year old family desk.
Each of the bedrooms has been recently painted, wood floors refinished, newly appointed furnishings and all new, high thread count linens. Each of the bathrooms is shared by two bedrooms, one with separate shower and claw-foot tub, the master with gorgeous marble subway tiled shower, frameless glass walls and custom double vanity with marble countertop.
Our home was recently outfitted with high velocity central air---such a luxury in a historic home and given the recent summers, a 'must' in our area.
No detail or expense has been spared in preparing our home for your enjoyment.
When we are in the Berkshires, we live upstairs in the carriage house at the back of the property. We are like stealth mice (very busy mice) you will only know we are there if you look for lights in the evening.
