Contemporary Berkshires Retreat
Our lovely 3 bedroom, 3 bath, 2,500 sq. ft. home is an ideal Berkshires location! It is equidistance from Lenox and Stockbridge Center, and walking distance to Kripalu Yoga Center and Tanglewood Performing Arts Center.
The interior of this home has been completely renovated for a contemporary but comfortable vibe with warm red accent walls throughout. The open floor plan invites you in to a lounge room with quality furnishings, a flatscreen tv, and fireplace. Behind the living room is a dining area with a table that seats 6. A wall of windows allows for plenty of natural lighting throughout the open room. The kitchen is sleek and modern with stainless steel appliances and an island inlaid with a sink. The island countertop has 3 bar stools for casual dining or morning coffee.
Two of the bedrooms have king size beds and a sitting area. The master bathroom has a large shower with a rain shower head. The third bedroom has two twin beds and a reading corner tucked into the corner window. Each bedroom has soft accent walls for modern ambience.
You will experience relaxation at its best at this property, which is surrounded by natural beauty. The patio overlooks the wetlands and is a short walk to our private beach, where we have 2 kayaks that are available for your use. Also on the property is a private clubhouse, at which you have access to an exercise room, large indoor pool and hot tub, and 3 outdoor clay tennis courts.
About the Berkshires:
The Berkshires is a beautiful rural region in the mountains of western Massachusetts, a popular vacation destination that is well known for its outdoor activities, fall colors, farm-to-table food, and a thriving arts scene. Stockbridge is known for being the location of artist Norman Rockwell's long-time residence and his 'best studio yet.' Christmastime at Stockbridge has been immortalized in Rockwell's painting 'Stockbridge Main Street at Christmas.'
