Private shingled eco-luxury mountaintop home with rare and extraordinary protected southerly long-range views, abutting 12000 acre Beartown State Forest. Carefully crafted, the gracious rooms feature four fireplaces with a hefty stone central core, mahogany windows and doors, and radiant heated wood floors. The proper horse barn has three generous stalls, a tack room, and caretaker's quarters.
Designed in the style of the legendary Gilded Age estates and meticulously built with all natural, non-toxic materials, this shingled manor house combines old-world craftsmanship with contemporary luxury. Expertly cited on 35 acres buffered by Beartown State Forest with protected, helicopter views to Connecticut, the house pays homage to the Arts & Crafts movement with handsome woodwork and four stone fireplaces in the kitchen, dining room, living room and master bedroom. From the gracious porte cochere, you enter a house defined by its details: Mahogany windows with European-style fenestration; coffered and paneled ceilings; push-button light switches; a fieldstone foyer with radiant heat floors; sinks made from local Alford marble. The large kitchen has a banquette and lounge, central cooking island and a screened-in dining porch. The dining room, living room and guest suite, or possible first-floor master, all have French doors that open onto a multi-level, stone-and-pebble loggia that runs the length of the house. An extra wide staircase with a window seat on the landing leads to the master suite that has arched windows, a paneled ceiling, a private balcony and a sumptuous bathroom with soaking tub and windowed stall shower. The upstairs also has two additional bedrooms and a guest bath. In the valley below the house, there's a four-stall horse barn with a hayloft as well as a large studio or caretaker's quarters that has a full bathroom and a half kitchen. There are pastures, paddocks, an outdoor arena and a private walking trail through the woods. As elegant as it is eco-conscious, this unique and tranquil property is conveniently located just five minutes from the Monterey General Store and fifteen minutes from Great Barrington's Main Street. Built in 2004, this extraordinary property is now and forever will be unequaled in the southern Berkshires.
