Thoughtfully built in 2005, this extraordinary property sits on a lovely hillside acre in Lenox village. It consists of a spacious 4-bedroom, 3 1/2-bath main house, a well-appointed one-bedroom apartment, and an oversized two-car garage. The main house offers so much, from the dramatic entry hall to the double living room with stone-faced, wood-burning fireplace to the bright and open kitchen/dining/family room to the Master Suite with cathedral ceiling, gas fireplace, sitting room, two walk-in closets, and large bathroom with soaking tub and shower.
The list of features goes on and on: Second floor laundry room, enormous walk-out basement, quality natural gas mechanicals, oversized extra-high garage with 9’ x 10’ doors, and so much more. The full one-acre lot is a pleasant surprise. Large open yard with plenty of space for kids to play, big boulder to climb or garden on, concrete patio, beautiful stone wall, and 14′ x 20′ shed.
The bright, spacious, private apartment features open living space, spacious bedroom with balcony and its own laundry. It has strong rental history, or it could be used for in-law, guest, or au pair quarters, or perhaps a professional office.
What’s the most compelling thing about this property?
The fact that it enjoys a full one-acre lot right in the historic village of Lenox. Plus, the variety of bright and freshly-painted living spaces, its move-in ready condition, and the 884-sq. ft. apartment above the garage.
For whom is this house perfect?
This home is ideal for a family with children or those who want to experience life in a quintessential New England town in the heart of the iconic Berkshires. And for those who would like a variety of living spaces, and a large one-bedroom apartment – great for in-law space or income potential.
What’s the most fun thing to do within five miles of this house?
Walk to shopping, art galleries, restaurants, seasonal festivals and Shakespeare & Company in downtown Lenox. Just 1.9 miles from Tanglewood, summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Renowned spas and health centers (Canyon Ranch, Cranwell, Kripalu) are all within a few minutes. Skiing at Bosquet. The list goes on!
If this house could talk, what secret would it tell about its history?
The property spans history. It is positioned next door to The Birchwood Inn, the first residential property in Lenox deeded by the Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1765. Just beyond that is The Church on the Hill, built in 1805, one of a small number of surviving Federal period churches in the region.
