Modern life in a gracious country house!

Live a comfortable, gracious life in this gorgeous house perfectly located in the heart of Lenox, offered by Selina Lamb of BIRCH Properties.

MODERN LIFE IN A GRACIOUS COUNTRY HOUSE. Renowned for its 19th century Cottages, the Berkshires (known as the inland Newport) boasts numerous wonderful homes of the era. It’s a rare thing indeed when one has been beautifully restored for modern life and enjoyment; rarer yet that it exists on its original 40+ acres with fantastic views in the very heart of Lenox, Mass. The offering, representing the original configuration, includes 101 and 107 Yokun Ave. as well as mid-century modern, 95 Yokun Ave. Completed in 1929, the design of the main house reflects the English Craftsmen homes of the early 1900’s which focused on human-scaled grandeur. Also for sale as Commercial Property.

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

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

In 1928, the property was purchased by Mr. Halstead Camp Lindsley.  He purchased the property as a grand romantic gesture for his second wife. He tore down the original wood-framed house and replaced it with the home that stands on the property today. Many of the original wood-framed Gilded Age mansions were prone to devastating fires, so Mr. Lindsley’s renovation was as much a safety measure as one of modernization.  Mr. Lindsley and his brother had founded hundreds of mines over the years, including the Falconbridge Nickel Mine which is still one of the largest producers of nickel today.  Mr. Lindsley had some of that nickel brought to the property, where one can still find the beautiful nickel bath fixtures throughout the house.
