What’s the most compelling thing about this property?
The most compelling thing about 35 Walker Street is that it is right in the heart of the Village…perfect for a primary or second home as you can walk to everything. AND it’s been renovated with a state of the art kitchen/great room and all new mechanicals, including central A/C.
For whom is this house perfect?
The perfect home for a large family, or an extended family that wants a place to gather for holidays or vacations…plenty of room to spread out, enjoy the Berkshires and still feel like you’re “home”. Or, if you’re an entrepreneur you’ll find this home perfect as a B&B (as it’s in the commercial district), a restaurant (the original bar of the restaurant is still there, converted into a wonderful entertaining space) or a combination of both!
What’s the fun thing to do within five miles of this house?
There are so many wonderful things to do, not only within a 5 mile radius, but also within walking distance of this home! Walk to the wonderful local restaurants, our fabulous Lenox Library, grocery stores, Kennedy Park, the Community Center, schools, Shakespeare & Co. ….or take a little longer walk down West Street to Tanglewood or BUTI, or hop in the car and visit the Pleasant Valley Sanctuary or Canoe Meadows for nature lovers, The Berkshire Museum, The Berkshire Theatre Festival, Barrington Stage, The Williamstown Theatre Festival, The Rockwell Museum or Chesterwood. This home is in the heart of the Berkshires…..so fun is at your door step!
If this house could talk, what secret would it tell about its history?
If the walls could talk…..I’m sure we’d hear lots of interesting stories….It’s been a “welcome home” to guests and travelers for over a hundred years and home to the current family for 14. It’s had quite the history as a guest “cottage” for one of the Estates, a private residence, an Inn, Restaurant, and a B&B…it’s a focal point of the community and just waiting for a new owner to continue its legacy!
