Description

SUPREMELY WELCOMING...One of Lenox's19th century Berkshire''cottages'' that has been meticulously restored and updated. Located on prestigious Cliffwood Street within walking distance of downtown Lenox, this exceptionally welcoming Berkshire "cottage" on 3.17 acres epitomizes gracious living with a porte cochere and sixteen fireplaces . Meticulously restored and updated, the six-bedroom house has many original architectural details such as paneled walls, carved mantelpieces and a two-tier staircase with an oculus on the second floor that overlooks the generous foyer (large enough for a baby grand piano.) The main floor has exceptional flow for a 19th century house: The library and living room with adjoining den (separated by pocket doors) have massive French doors that open onto a large screened porch; the dining room, with built-in corner cabinets, and billiards room are ideal for entertaining; the cook's kitchen with capacious dining and lounge areas opens onto a large deck. The adjacent mudroom, with a contoured entry doors, still has the original "call board" for the servants. In the basement, there's the original ice room and a dumb waiter for transporting firewood to the upper floors. This property has a gracious driveway, mature gardens, a privately situated swimming pavilion and a barn-like garage that can accommodate five cars. One of the few 19th century cottages that has been maintained as a private residence, this is a rare opportunity to live in a park-like setting so close to town.
