Enjoy your vacation in a beautiful historic house located in the heart of the Berkshires. Located two and a quarter hours north of New York City, this circa-1770s center chimney colonial will charm and delight your family and guests.
With 3100 sq. ft of wood floors and elegant decor, this spacious house was renovated with two additions: sunroom with master bedroom above, and the gourmet kitchen. The original portion of the house includes a den with fireplace and 42" plasma tv with satellite surround sound home theater system. Built-in bookshelves have loads of great reading and an eclectic DVD library that should have something for everyone. The Parlor is a wood-paneled room with wood-burning stove and door opening up to a small deck with adirondack chairs for lounging. This is a great room for entertaining with stereo, turntable and vinyl record collection. Connecting to the parlor is the traditional dining room which has a table that can seat 10 and a fireplace.
A sunroom opens up to a back patio with teak outdoor furniture, an umbrella and vast flower gardens that bloom in every season.
In the Master Suite, wake up to beautiful mountain views particularly spectacular during fall foliage season, and go to bed relaxed after taking a soak in the private master bath jacuzzi. Bath and shower products and candles along with luxurious bath robes complete the experience. Vaulted ceilings, cherry hardwood floors, and walk-around deck make this room a relaxing retreat. All bedrooms feature down comforters, high thread count sheets and fans. All bathrooms feature hair dryers, robes, plush towels, body soaps, Shampoo, Conditioner and Shower Gel.
Bedrooms: In addition to the spacious master, there are three guestrooms with great architectural details like original wood beams and hardwood floors. The upstairs landing with skylights and gas stove features a day bed perfect for reading in the afternoon.

Flower gardens are in abundance and you will be enticed to the hammock to unwind and soak in the incredible mountain views. After playing a round of tennis on the clay court, enjoy a glass of iced-tea on the outdoor porch furniture at the tennis house bar.
