Great Barrington Estate Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms, 2 full baths, plenty of room for two families

Long driveway leads to this private estate with meadows, woods, stream, pond and even a small pear and apple orchard, but you are still only minutes from downtown Great Barrington and 15 minutes from Tanglewood. 50 acres of fields and woodland along with modern amenities such as a private pool. Old world charm inside and out with gracious, large rooms to enjoy the quiet of the mountains when not swimming or taking in a concert. Wonderful stone patio with modern BBQ for evening cookouts or poolside cocktails. Large screened porch when the bugs are out. Washer and dryer in the house makes your stay an easy one. Good kitchen for entertaining or cooking for the family. Nice mountain and forest views and plenty of trails for private walks. Owner's representative lives nearby should any special needs arise.

We have recently added a 55 inch TV (for videos or games - no cable or TV reception), rebuilt the driveway and repainted many of the rooms.

Off the beaten track, but a short ride to town: Set in the middle of a former 200 acre mink farm, you can put your daily life far behind you when you turn down our third of a mile driveway. Pool, great room and plenty of woods and streams for long quiet walks. While we have no cable TV channels there are many videos and DVDs and you can bring your own or rent downtown. Full wireless internet through almost the entire property.

There is a fully stocked kitchen with everything you need to cook a gourmet country feast.

About Matthew Nemerson

Owned by a three generation family partnership the Nemersons and Chertows of New Haven CT, Westport CT, Baltimore MD and Oakland CA welcome you their family compound and hope you enjoy the house and grounds as much as five generations of their families have.

Matthew Nemerson purchased this estate in 1986

Why Matthew Nemerson chose Great Barrington

Built in 1927 by Lou and Beatrice Simkins of New York City - he a successful clothing and mink fur manufacturing on 57th Street - what started out as a simple weekend retreat during the 1930s expanded into a prosperous business raising mink and grey fox. In the 1960s the 200 acre estate with four buildings was sold to Reg Nettleton a professional mink rancher. He ran the business until 1986 when we bought 40 original acres and then added another 20 over time. All remnants of the mink days have been removed by there are still the gracious land vistas and variety of trees and gardens that the Simkins installed during the 1930s and 1940s.

What makes this estate unique

Near downtown but totally private - a great place to get away!
