Experience this ‘two blocks to Tanglewood’ traditional-style home; renovated and expanded to offer excellent indoor-outdoor entertaining within the cultural richness of Lenox and Stockbridge. Three private bedrooms, each with ensuite full baths and flexible areas for friends and family to gather, play and relax. A vaulted ceiling Great Room adjoins the huge kitchen.

A great opportunity to be in the heart of one of the Berkshires most coveted locations!

What’s the most compelling thing about this property?

All the features one seeks in a Berkshire getaway, in the perfect location: The back yard is your own summer resort with an in-ground pool, private and beautifully landscaped backyard with patio, a hot tub and space for outdoor games; a 1st floor primary suite with wood-burning fireplace and screened porch; a huge new kitchen, and new Great Room with gas fireplace, built just in 2018. When you are not using your Berkshire escape, this home could be a high-generating short-term rental, should you desire.

For whom is this house perfect?

This superbly located turnkey home close to Tanglewood and The Bowl will be perfect for both year-round Berkshire living and as a Berkshire part-time escape!

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

How can we possibly say just one when the most popular spots in the Berkshires are mere minutes away and you can walk to many of them?!  Downtown Lenox, The Mount, Kennedy Park and so much more are all less than 5 miles away!  But all of these are a mere steps away:

A locals’ secret is definitely Bullard Woods, 52 acres along the shores of Stockbridge Bowl, managed by the Stockbridge Bowl Association and owned by Tanglewood, which offers serene walks through old-growth forest, picnic tables and stunning views of the lake.  Bullard Woods is across the road from the property.

Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health is walkable and is a well-known yoga and holistic health retreat center that offers yoga and meditation programs, workshops, and retreats focused on personal growth, spiritual development, and holistic wellness, not to mention sweeping grounds with one of the very best views in all the Berkshires!

Swim, kayak, canoe from your shared private access to the renowned Stockbridge Bowl – a natural 372-acre lake surrounded by forested hills and mountains – and the perfect spot from which to watch the fireworks after James Taylor’s 4th of July concert at Tanglewood.  The canoe and kayaks are included and are already there lakeside!

Of course, just 2 blocks away is Tanglewood!  Tanglewood Music Center’s greatness lies in its combination of exceptional talent, a stunning natural setting, a commitment to education and community engagement, a rich history, and a dedication to both tradition and innovation. It continues to inspire and enrich the world of classical music, making it a beloved destination for musicians and music lovers alike.  Your Tanglewood ‘cart’ is ready and waiting for you for your picnic on the great lawn outside the shed.

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

The land this home sits on was once part of the Wheatleigh Estate, a historic Gilded Age mansion built in 1893 by Henry H. Cook, a New York financier. This elegant Italianate villa, designed by the Golden Age architectural firm, Peabody and Stearns, boasts stunning design, based on a 16th-century Florentine Italian villa, today offers luxurious accommodations, world-class food and drink, and a glimpse into the opulent lifestyle of the late 19th century. And a cocktail, beverage or glass of wine in the Library, or dinner at the Bistro is a mere five-minute stroll away that will transport you to another world.
