NEW TO THE MARKET!
Why not live your life - and work - from the beautiful Berkshires?

In a Nutshell
Walking distance to the New England village of Lenox MA sits a wonderful property on the grounds of a once-Gilded-Age estate --- The Bishop Estate --- in a marvelous community of homes with 88 acres of private walking trails. This open plan, rustic-modern country house has 4 bedrooms/4bathrooms, plus two large work-from-home studio/offices, each with its' own separate entry.

The Grounds
2.68 acres of landscaped tranquility offers privacy, gardens, and vegetables growing in raised boxes. Throughout the historic estate wind private community-shared walking paths through hills, fields and specimen trees in a historic landscape originally designed by a nationally treasured 19th century landscape architect. Surrounding the dwelling are stone walkways and mature specimen trees.

The House
Professionally designed & renovated with many bespoke custom details, this house has handsome detailing throughout using quality materials. Built on a gently sloping lot, the interiors were created with a sense of place: large 2 over 2 architect-series dark stained wood windows; vaulted ceilings with painted or whitewashed shiplap; coffee-bean stained hardwood floors; and a custom fitted stair railing that connects four half-levels of living space - each separated by a few steps.
Foyer Level - Through the front door is the "foyer-mudroom", a no-nonsense New England working entry: wall to wall cocoa mat is installed at the double doors to catch the weather, an extra-wide coat closet with built-in shelves, double coat hooks surround the four walls to catch all the hats & jackets. A practical but pretty foyer to welcome you into a super functional home. Access to a 500+/- sq ft studio office space through a door off the foyer keeps work completely separate from the family living spaces (you can't hear them).
Main Level - a few steps up to an open plan public space which includes the kitchen, dining, and living rooms. In the living room, a raised hearth masonry fireplace glows - as does the artwork, with ample wall-wash lighting. Nature beckons through four enormous windows looking into the trees, disolving the outdoor-indoor boundry for all four seasons. A peaceful screen porch off the dining area overlooks a weeping cherry tree and the gardens beyond from above, and lives like a “grown-up’s tree house”. The kitchen was recently gut renovated and includes a gas-electric convection Bosch range, Bosch convection-microwave, Bosch dishwasher and a generous Liebherr refrigerator. Large windows overlooking the garden connect the kitchen to a bucoclic landscape and beautiful sunlight. There's more than ample storage for dishes, food and small appliances in the painted cabinets; the light quartz-stone countertops provide enough work area for families who cook together.
There are two bedroom on the main floor, including the owners ensuite and bedroom 2; a second hall bath and broom closet .
Studio Level - half a flight up from the living room - enter the top floor studio level: a 768 sq ft vaulted ceiling studio space with huge windows and it's own exterior entry deck. Designed by & for a painter, the studio level includes 4 large storage closets, cork floors (so quiet!), a clean up area with mini-fridge/open shelving/vintage sink; and a full bathroom with a shower tiled in periwinkle blue penny rounds ... make this space perfect for creative living, working from home or visiting family. Or all three!
Garden Level - The garden level is half a floor down from the foyer and includes two bedrooms (a king and a queen) and a shared hall bath; a large family room with wood burning masonry fireplace and glass patio doors onto a stone terrace, the laundry room with central vac, and mechanical/shop room complete the garden level.

What Locals Say about Lenox

  • Trulia User
    "Expensive to live. Some Lenox public service people are out of touch. (Selectman and boards) People who visit in the summer are mean and dislike the locals which is very sad! locals are fun loving! Great Schools and teachers and plenty of artsy things to do! "
