Overview

South Egremont Estate Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms, 6 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10+

Home featured in NY Times. A 1400's barn from Kent county, England,was used for the great room of this house that is near three ski areas -- Butternut, Catamount and Jiminy Peak. The house is a spacious four thousand square feet with two fireplaces, three sitting rooms, five comfortable bedrooms and six bathrooms. The house is located on a hill away from the center of South Egremont; yet only minutes from the heart of this historic town.

The house is located on a beautiful hill and yet is close to the very center of historic South Egremont, Massachusetts in the historic southern Berkshires. It is less than 2-and-a-half hours from New York City. 4-wheel drive highly recommended in winter. A short drive to historic Great Barrington, Stockbridge and Lenox for Tanglewood, museums, antiquing, hiking, skiing and historic sight seeing.

Suitability:
  • children welcome

About Owner/Manager

We bought the property in 1974 as an escape from New York, NY where I worked as a network television producer, my husband an editor/reporter for Forbes magazine. I'm originally from the Midwest, got into journalism when I founded the Michigan Daily, the student run newspaper at University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, where I was a chem major. Met my husband at United Press International. He went on to Forbes magazine, I went to NBC-TV News.

Owner/Manager purchased this estate in 1974

Why Owner/Manager chose South Egremont

Tucked away on a private mountain road, this luxurious, spacious mountain hideaway has room for your friends, family and pets. Gated In-ground Heated Pool with diving board on the deep end, stairs going into the pool on the Shallow End.Kids and Dogs love to jump in and climb out.

What makes this estate unique

Spacious and luxurious inside and out, yet minutes from the heart of South Egremont, MA, a pre-Revolutionary town where -- unforgettably -- the old and new come together. To Berkshire natives, the area of Western Massachusetts recalls memories of childhood vacations in the grandeur of its majestic green hills, of swimming in mysterious hidden lakes that dot the state and of family lunches and dinners at favorite restaurants on its country roads. To us the Berkshires have always been alive with music by the Boston Symphony orchestra at Tanglewood in Lenox, and rich in the famous folksy paintings in the fabulous collection at the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge. Today, new memories are being born with innovative attractions that co-exist and blend with the natural beauty of the area....a rope adventure course in a forestry site where you'll be suspended on safety lines between the earth and the forest canopy as you scramble along any one of eight aerial trails of varying difficulty....new Berkshire restaurants like Brava, a wine and tapas bar in Lenox and Moe's Tavern in Lee where craft beer and American whiskey lovers mingle, and an old standby, Bagels Too in Pittsfield, has some of the country's best bagels outside of New York...In Arrowhead, take a tour of the 18th century home of Herman Melville where he completed Moby Dick. Then, on to the Old Creamery Co-Op in Cummington to pick up sandwiches and head to Savoy Mountain State Forest in Florida, MA for a swim in one of the crystalline ponds, followed by your picnic lunch.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This house is set in the Berkshires Hills, seemingly away from everything but parallel to downtown historic South Egremont, Mass, by a few minutes. The house has many places to just sit, read a book. Fireplaces in at least two rooms, including the great room shaped by a 1400's barn from Kent, England. Great hiking just outside the door. And a swimming pool, safely fenced in so that no one gets lost.. It was an ideal and beautful getaway!

South Egremont is a pre-Revolutional country town, in a sophisticated but understated region of eastern U-S. Winding roads, Appalachian hiking trails, streams and river coursing through fields where horses, goats and cows graze. Every other person you meet who grew up and still live in the Berkshires likes to tell you how as a kid they posed for Norman Rockwell. Jasper Johns is among the greatest living painters these days lives nearby.
