The Birches Country Estate

Mary Jane White and Brandon White of Cohen + White Associates offer The Birches, a magical country estate that has been redesigned and renovated with all the amenities a buyer could want.

The Birches….welcome to your new oasis in the Berkshires where every season is memorable. This magical compound has been architecturally redesigned and renovated using the finest materials offering all the modern amenities a buyer wants to live, play, relax and work from, surrounded by 20+ acres of privacy and far-reaching protected views in all directions. This stunning contemporary has big open common areas for gathering, first floor primary en suite, guest bedrooms en suite and a private two-bedroom guest house with kitchenette, custom crafted wine room, and an exercise room all offering plenty of space for a large crowd or intimacy for a few. Just arrive with your suitcase and enjoy all this impeccably maintained estate has to offer; a beautiful gunite heated pool with a waterfall and expansive stone patio, pool house with dining/playroom, kitchenette, bathroom and laundry, organic vegetable gardens and orchards, underground fiber optic cable and terracing in every direction to dine, relax and take in all this impeccably maintained estate has to offer.

What is the most compelling thing about this property?

Everything about this house is compelling—the setting, the protected panoramic views, the stunning buildings, the landscaping and the tasteful style.  This is the kind of perfect property that rarely comes on the market.

For whom is this house perfect?

The main house has three bedrooms with the primary wing separated nicely from two spacious guest bedrooms, and the separate guest quarters have two more bedrooms with a kitchenette. Anyone—a family, a couple or even a single person—who enjoys beautiful surroundings and likes to welcome guests to their home will enjoy this lovely country retreat.

What is the most fun thing to do within five miles of this property?

This house is perfectly located to take advantage of everything the Berkshires has to offer. Its local town of Egremont has its own unique music and dining vibe found at the Egremont Barn, Racebrook Lodge and Hilltop Pies. And nearby Catamount Mountain Resort offers skiing in the winter and the world’s longest zip line in the summer. Just minutes away is the busy town of Great Barrington, with theater, music, movies, shopping and restaurants. Ski Butternut in Great Barrington is another winter sports option. Less than a half-hour away are Lenox and Stockbridge for Tanglewood, theater, museums (Norman Rockwell Museum, Edith Wharton’s residence at The Mount, Daniel Chester French’s home and studio at Chesterwood and more). And heading south, Columbia County attractions are also within easy reach. But if you’d just like to stay home, the gorgeous gunite pool complete with waterfall and a fantastic pool house with kitchenette is a perfect place to spend summer afternoons. And for a gardener, here’s an opportunity to spend your days maintaining and developing an array of well-established beds and orchards.

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

This house would tell you about the owners who redesigned and renovated it, using only the finest materials, and made it into a beautiful, relaxing and comfortable place to live, work, entertain and enjoy.
