This spectacularly designed, meticulously renovated and fully equipped 3200 sq. ft. structure consists of a huge 2 story open plan kitchen, dining and entertaining area with 4 seating groups; there is a dramatic spiral staircase at the center. On the first floor, there are two bedrooms, one with a queen bed and one with two twins. They share a full bath. There is also a half bath on the first floor. Upstairs is a larger bedroom with a queen bed; this bedroom uses a fabulous bathroom with an 8 person sauna. This bathroom can be accessed from the upstairs entertaining space, which has a fold out queen sofa. There is a washer/dryer upstairs, and all towels, linens and household equipment are on hand.
The kitchen features a SubZero refrigerator, a Miele dishwasher and a built in microwave in a large cooking island; there are many beautiful glass and wood cabinets and plenty of prep space. A dining table for six is in the 2 story 'silo' at the side of the house. It overlooks a beautiful semi-circular rock garden where there is an outdoor dining table and chairs and lounges, two decks and a gas grill. There are two TVs, DirecTV, a DVD player, WiFi and a land line.
Outdoors, our guests share with our family the use of a 20' by 40' gunnite pool with an integral 8' by 8' hot tub. The pool has a table and chairs, lounges, and shade as well as sun. It's surrounded by a lovely garden, planted to bloom in July and August.
The barn shares 10 acres with the 12,000 sq. ft. main house. Behind the houses is Bald Head Mountain. An intermittent waterfall (spring and after heavy rain) flows down the mountain into a stream alongside the barn. The property is 1/3 of a mile to the main entrance to Tanglewood, and two miles from downtown Lenox. Under Mountain Road joins up with two other roads to form a 5 mile loop overlooking the horse farm and valley. It is a favorite with walkers, bicyclers, etc.+ More
