St. Anns Ave is a quiet dead end street which has not changed much in the past 100 years. In our full renovation in 2003, we tried to maintain the character of our old house by leaving all the long plank hardwood floors and the old wooden windows and repaired rather than replaced plaster walls and vintage plumbing fixtures. We selected antique sconces and whenever possible the furnishing are in keeping with the period when the house was built. However, comfort is key; you'll love to curl up on the new down stuffed living room couch or doze on the Shifman mattress.
Relax and enjoy the grill or a cool drink on the wrap around porch and in our perennial garden. Although the center Lenox is a three minutes walk. There you will find fine dining, shops, playgrounds, tennis-courts, spa services and more.
Tanglewood is less than five minutes by car, Shakespeare and Company, a mile down the road. Hiking trails are a short walk up the hill and Laurel lake two miles away. Get into the rhythm of a peaceful country life never too far from all Berkshire attractions and the amenities Lenox provides.

This is Willow and me in Spain last summer. Willow is our Westie and she travels with Daniel and I wherever we go. We spend most of our summer in Portugal leaving us the possibility to rent our Lenox home.
We are spending a lot more time in New York City these days,but Willow much prefers Lenox where she has a back yard and can run free in Kennedy Park.
Over ten years ago, we bought the home as a full time residence. It was a perfect home for then teenage boys, close to town on a quiet street.
Lenox is a great place to be all year round. It's quiet and safe, but provides cultural attractions that rival many big cities. Now that our three boys are grown and have moved away, our house is always ready for to be rented. We spend less time there and more time travelling. But Lenox is an easy place to come back to. Everybody knows your name.
We travel all over the world spending time above all in New York, Portugal, Italy. When we return from these hectic places, our time in Lenox is spent out in nature as much as possible. Our neighborhood is quiet even during summer months when town is full to the brim. Our house is great for outdoor dining and is a short walk to the center of Lenox as well as hiking and biking trails. Of course we enjoy Jacob's Pillow and Tanglewood as well!
We are in the center of Lenox and Lenox is the center of the cultural Berkshires
