This unique and special home was originally the carriage house for the neighboring 1881 mansion, it has been recently totally remodeled and professionally redecorated at the highest quality levels. It is an upscale, luxurious and sharply designed home, lived in by the owners, that should not be confused with a typical 'rental' unit. You will be entering a world of class and comfort with an understated elegance and style.
The property is located on the hill top adjacent to the center of historic Lenox; it offers open, unobstructed views of the splendid Berkshire Mountains from its wide, furnished back porch. Perfect for sipping cocktails after a day of enjoying everything that the Berkshires have to offer. Adjacent to the home are two of the famed 'Berkshire Cottages' (actually exquisite mansions), miles of development restricted woods extending from the back porch and lawn – creating an oasis of green space in the centre of the town of Lenox. The historic Ventfort Hall is across the street, and shops, restaurants, galleries, coffee shops and Shakespeare and Company are all within just a 2 minute walk.
The home has 4 bedrooms, each with its own private bath. 1 king, 2 queens and 1 full bed. Three of the bedrooms have flat screen TVs with satellite and cable and high speed wireless internet throughout. A large, bright, modern fully equipped kitchen with stone countertops an island and GE Monogram stainless steel appliances. The dining area has a magnificent custom dining room table of Madagascar ebony that can extend to seat up to 12. An outdoor propane grill is included. AC and heat with 6 separate zones.

This home has been a careful remodel and design project over 3 years. We created this as our personal summer family residence and seasonal vacation home. Our home contains our personally selected original artwork and creative finds, but you will not be peppered with walls of family photos. This should feel like your own elegant Lenox home during your stay, and we hope you will and enjoy and treat it with love.
The Berkshires have so much to see and do, and Lenox is the heart, which is why so many of the 19th century industrialists built their summer 'cottages' here. With Tanglewood, Shakespeare and Co, Jacob's Pillow, museums, shops, galleries, Canyon Ranch, countryside for hiking, biking, skiing, water-sports, it's an amazing place to enjoy life. In the fall, the area comes alive with all the brilliant foliage colors, arts, crafts, and harvest festivals. Take a scenic drive in the country or hike, bike or golf. Fine dining at area establishments featuring the seasons delights.
Nearly everything is within walking distance, or a very short drive.
