Disappear into the Berkshires and live a truly regal lifestyle during your week at this Irish Country Estate. This five-bedroom, five-bathroom, 7,400 square foot estate sits upon twenty-one acres of manicured gardens and sprawling forest. Directly across the street is Onota Lake, with public access less than two miles away.
Stepping through the front door, guests are taken back to an era where no detail was spared. Ornate wallpapers and rugs, private studies and parlors, and plenty of socialization ring throughout the halls. A baby grand piano serves as the beautiful foyer's focal point. The formal living room has a wood-burning fireplace and a 65" smart TV equipped with Direct TV, Apple TV, and Blu-ray player. The cozy library, with elegant cabinetry, is stocked with an extensive collection of books, some over 100 years old, and houses an additional fireplace. Snuggle up on the extra-long leather couch and lose yourself in one of the old classics. If work beckons, you will find a comfortable desk with power outlets.
The former kitchen was completely redesigned into a modern-day gourmet kitchen featuring granite countertops and cherrywood cabinets. The inspired chef will appreciate a fully-stocked cooking area complete with a full spice drawer, pots and pans, utensils, and more! For the inner barista, behold the build-in coffee bar, which includes a Keurig coffee machine and a European Nespresso machine for the ultimate java brewing experience. A 12-cup drip coffee maker and a Margarita machine are available upon request. But that's not all! With a well-appointed top-of-the-line 48" Subzero refrigerator/freezer, separate wine & beverage cooler, and six-burner Wolf range-top with griddle and dual ovens, it's easy to understand why guests rave about this space.
There is plenty of seating for eight in the formal dining room, which boasts a 1930's Spanish origin table—making guests feel as if they are hosting a mid-century dinner party. However, the home truly earns its bragging rights from the new four-season room allowing for breathtaking 3-sided floor-to-ceiling views of the beautiful Berkshires. Curl up on a comfy chair to read a good book, enjoy your morning coffee, afternoon tea, or evening cocktail. Featuring a Bose in-door/outdoor sound system, gas fireplace, and a 45" smart-TV, the four-season room is the perfect place to sip your chardonnay during an occasional summer rainstorm.
When it comes time to retreat away from the group and get some rest, guests will find complete privacy in the home's five bedrooms—four with queen beds, one with a twin, and all with luxuriously soft bedding proven to help you sleep. With three full bathrooms and two half-baths, guests will surely have enough space for unpacking their things and getting ready for the day.
The game room, located in the basement, provides added space to unwind. Guests will have a blast listening to the jukebox while playing pool, ping pong, air hockey, pinball, foosball, skeeball, and an array of classic arcade games. Adjacent to the game room is a home theatre featuring an 85" TV, bar, and refrigerator. Guests can even exercise on the treadmill or recumbent bike while watching a movie or favorite program. Just a few short steps away, relax, unwind, and find peace of mind in the custom-built, four-person sauna.
Outside, revel in even more luxuries on one of three various decks. The "summer dining deck" hosts a seven-person hot tub, BBQ island, and an outdoor dining table with a centerfire feature. The 20' x 55' upper deck includes a relaxing hammock swing chair with sun canopy and a fire table. Last but most certainly not least, the lower patio contains a Cowboy Cauldron fire pit kettle surrounded by Adirondack chairs and a large two-person swing chair, also with a sun canopy.
Along with elegant beauty, this home is full of history. Throughout the years, it has trickled through the possession of various corporate executives. With rich history comes rich luxury, and guests will find both here!

A large and gracious property in the Berkshires. Impeccably clean. Outstanding bed linens and really comfortable mattresses. Convenient to hiking, snowshoeing and cross country skiing. Pittsfield is a classic New England town with many spires and steeples. Some nice restaurants as well.”
