Living is easy in this impressive Stockbridge contemporary located on a fantastic plot of land with western views, blazing sunsets and a heated pool — all minutes from Tanglewood. Three levels of thoughtful living spaces. A soaring two-level Great Room opens to an informal dining room and a gourmet kitchen. This makes the perfect space for gathering around the fireplace on cool fall days while taking in the view from the walls of glass. And on warm fall days, wander out to the extensive decking that overlooks the heated pool and think ahead to making new memories in the next Berkshire summer. The master bedroom, with “his and her” baths, is on the main level; guests have their own floor. A lower-level family room with fireplace, galley kitchen and bar makes a wonderfully convenient family space for exercising, gaming or pool activities. Two changing rooms and full bath have direct access to the patio and pool area. This gracious house in a serene park-like setting with professionally landscaped grounds, gardens and manicured lawns welcomes you with its circular drive, discreet side entrance to the oversized column-free three-car garage and generous outdoor parking area…the perfect Berkshire retreat!!

What’s the most compelling thing about this property?

This house was deliberately designed and sited to take advantage of the panoramic western view and sunsets from most of the rooms on all three levels. Quality construction and impeccable maintenance make this truly a special residence.

For whom is this house perfect?

Here’s what the owners of this house will enjoy: luxurious first-floor living, dramatic common areas with soaring ceilings and a two-story masonry fireplace where their family will gather, and direct access to spacious decking. Guest wings with plenty of bedrooms and baths on the upper level afford family and guests comfort and privacy. The lower level is completely finished with ten-foot ceilings, a family room with fireplace and full kitchenette, full bath, two changing rooms accessible to the heated pool and a spacious game/play/exercise area…all steps away from the pool and patio area on this level. This house is perfect for anyone who would love living in this beautiful and comfortable space.

What’s the fun thing to do within five miles of this house?

The people who built this house chose this site for their weekend get-away so they could capture all the best of the Berkshires…nature, privacy, quiet and swimming in their heated pool out their back door, but only a minute’s drive to Tanglewood, Shakespeare & Company, theatre and some of the finest restaurants, boutique shopping and galleries in the area. Stockbridge residency also comes with membership to the town’s beach on the Stockbridge Bowl for lake swimming and boating.

If this house could talk, what secret would it tell about its history?

This home is located on a dead end enclave in a much sought-after part of Stockbridge, adding to the feeling of privacy and retreat from the rest of the world. It has witnessed many happy years shared by the family that built this home, and has watched the owners’ children grow up, marry and bring grandchildren into the circle of activity that this house makes possible. This house has seen several generations enjoy family hikes on this most special country lane.
