A meandering drive through a hardwood forest leads to this 11,800 sq ft family retreat in the Berkshires. The wood shingled home was built in 2003 on a ridge near the center of the quaint village of Alford. The home offers great privacy with sunset views, yet is only a 20 minute drive to Tanglewood and other cultural amenities offered in the area. A 2,400 sq ft studio and 800 sq ft pool cabana are next to the house. Beautiful gardens are woven through dramatic rock features and flagstone paths. The four-bedroom home offers large rooms for entertaining as well as more intimate spaces. Custom stained glass windows frame the forests and views from the breakfast room adjacent to the gourmet kitchen, and from the expansive living room with fieldstone fireplace and bar. A mural featuring local historic places showcases the grand staircase. The master bedroom features his and hers bathrooms and dressing rooms, as well as a kitchenette. A home theater, game room, bedroom/workout room, and wine cellar are located on the basement floor. The home is handicap accessible, with an elevator, wide doors throughout, and a ramped entry.
This offering includes 26.9Â± acres and improvements at 50 East Road as well as an additional 8.7Â± acre lot.
