This remarkable property in a park-like setting offers the best of everything country life has to offer. Overlooking the Umpachene River on 72 acres, this stately ivy-covered six-bedroom Georgian home is privately situated at the end of a long driveway and is still within walking distance of the charming Southfield Store Cafe.
Well-maintained and thoughtfully designed for entertaining, the high-ceilinged first floor has a conservatory living room with fireplace, formal dining room, paneled study with fireplace, master suite with a whirlpool tub facing the river and French doors that open onto the terrace and backyard. The eat-in kitchen has a Sub-Zero refrigerator and wood-burning stove with an adjacent changing and powder room that opens to the terrace, spa and swimming pool.
From the graceful foyer, a sweeping staircase leads to the second floor with a media room and four corner bedrooms divided by two bathrooms so that the guest rooms have no common walls, ensuring ultimate peace, quiet and privacy. Another staircase provides access to the stand-up attic that offers abundant storage. On the lower level, there is a game room, wine cellar and nanny’s suite as well as a separate caretaker’s apartment with a private outdoor entrance that is discreetly situated.
The grounds are exceptional, with a heated swimming pool and a hot tub that comfortably accommodates eight people. A terrace runs the length of the house, and elegant brick walls, bordered by lush flowerbeds, are surrounded by a mature forest rich in flora and fauna. For the uncompromising buyer, this is a unique opportunity to live luxuriously in a magnificent rural setting in close proximity to the Old Inn on the Green and Gedney Farm. Located near the Massachusetts/Connecticut border, it is convenient to both Berkshire and Litchfield counties’ cultural and recreational attractions.
