What’s the most compelling thing about this property?
This unique residence blends country casual and city elegance seamlessly. Take a right at the front door and you enter a rustic Adirondack lodge wing with a welcoming great room that beckons gatherings around the stone fireplace or a meal in front of a second fieldstone fireplace in the dining area that overlooks the lake. Take a left and you enter the luxurious addition with formal rooms perfect for entertaining intimate or large social gatherings.
For whom is this house perfect?
This house is more than a home, it’s an experience, with all that the Berkshires have to offer right outside your door. Total privacy and quiet for the nature lover, with panoramic views of water and rolling hills. Enjoy it in solitude or share it with family and friends with space for all.
What’s the most fun thing to do within five miles of this house?
If owning your own 115 acres isn’t fun enough for you where you have your own lake for swimming, fishing or kayaking or playing a game of tennis on your own tennis court, Catamount Ski area and Bash Bish Falls are just a short drive up the road and Race Brook Falls and Sages Ravine are around the corner for a wonderful day of hiking.
If this house could talk, what secret would it tell about its history?
When the owners constructed the addition to the original house they imported many of the materials, including decorative woodwork and intricate marble fireplace surrounds, from Germany. It is also rumored that some of the best fishing in the area can be had right here in the Applegate lake.
