Tranquility with privacy, 900 feet of water frontage on beautiful Lake Windermere, amazing tennis court, walking trails and sprawling lawn surround this dramatic contemporary. Gracious open common spaces, very large screened porch with a view of the lake, three fireplaces, and unique passive solar design.
What’s the most compelling thing about this property?
The most compelling thing about this house…other than 900 feet of water frontage….is its unique passive solar design with a massive wall of windows that soak in the natural light and offer views of the lake from most rooms.
For whom is this house perfect?
This house works beautifully for anyone who values privacy, likes nature, would enjoy over 900 feet of frontage on one of the most beautiful non-motorboat 100-acre lakes in the Berkshires, and would enjoy a professionally designed and maintained private tennis court. The house has almost 4,000 sq ft of living space with 5 bedrooms and 3.5 baths, big open common spaces that are wonderful for entertaining, three fireplaces and a massive screened porch overlooking the lake — all with a floor plan that flows beautifully and gives each room an intimate feeling. This property would work well for a few or for many.
What’s the most fun thing to do within five miles of this house?
If you are a “foodie” you will find some of the best cuisine in the Berkshires minutes away; The elegant Old Inn on the Green, the popular Cantina, the beautiful Gedney Farm and the wonderful Southfield store which is now considered the best pit stop in the Berkshires for their famous breakfast offerings and fun Taco Tuesday evenings. If you get bored enjoying Lake Windermere out your door or playing tennis on your own private court, you can jump in your car and head to York Lake at Sandisfield State Forest, or grab a picnic lunch and visit Campbell or Umpachene Falls, or take a mile-long hike on Dry Hill in New Marlborough. Plus, Ski Butternut is just a 15-minute drive away.
If this house could talk, what secret would it tell about its history?
It would tell you it was built in the 80’s and would love to have a brand new kitchen for 2020. Purchase the home now and have plenty of time to get this update done in time for spring!!
