A winding driveway through dappled sunlight and mature trees leads to the picturesque setting for this exceptional home. The house is surrounded by expansive landscaped gardens, with seasonally blooming perennials, rock garden plants, rare species, and extensive stonework.
Enter the gracious spacious two-story foyer. Step down into the sun filled living room with fireplace. The exceptional library is lined with bookshelves. Dining room has its own fireplace as does the adjacent dining porch. The large eat-in country kitchen has a wall of windows looking out to the gardens. The butler’s pantry and the large back mudroom provide terrific work spaces for household activities and entertaining. Complete with wine cellar in the basement. The flow of spaces is excellent and there are multiple accesses to the outdoors.
On the second floor is the master suite with a sunny southern exposure, his and her walk-in closets with custom cabinetry, and a grand European styled bath. Two other bedrooms, one with a fireplace, open onto an open balcony porch overlooking the gardens. The rooms are beautifully sized and have a dedicated bath.
Two more bedrooms with a sitting area are easily available just steps away in the charming guesthouse reached by a covered stone colonnade. This building also contains a large open office space that could be used as a family game space or studio. On the lower of the three levels is a garden studio/workshop.
Through the gardens and stone paths is the in-ground swimming pool for summer enjoyment. Take walks on the country back roads, stroll to Chesterwood. Terrific location near the Norman Rockwell Museum, the Berkshire Botanical Garden and Tanglewood. 7 miles to Great Barrington.
