This country retreat sits perfectly on 16 private acres (includes an abutting parcel of 7.5 acres) off bucolic Stevens Glen Road. A renovated Modernist gem, it's simple elegance, clean lines, and custom materials inside and out, enhance the serenity of its natural setting. Bright and open entertaining spaces with walls of windows and glass doors bring the beauty of the natural setting into the home. Oak and travertine floors a cathedral ceiling, and a fireplace in the living room, add sophistication. The Poggenpohl kitchen designed around an expansive island opens up to mountain views. The spacious master bedroom on the main floor features built-ins, an elegant en suite bathroom, picture windows, and glass doors that lead to a private deck. The same amount of care has gone into the design of the rest of the house. The lower floor includes comfortable guest rooms with an impressive list of amenities. An oversized two-car garage, a modern elevator that serves the house, a standing seam metal roof, and state-of-the-art mechanicals are among the features that add to its character and functionality.
The grounds designed by renowned architectural landscape artist, Craig Halvorson, echo the house with their purist sensibility: beautiful stone walls, specimen trees through the property, sections of grass, gravel, and stone, simple curb details, and lovely plantings, all surrounded by meadow, woodland and mountain views.
The drive up to Stevens Glen Road conveys the feeling of being in a unique hideaway, but the home sits only 5 minutes from West Stockbridge Village, 7 minutes from Tanglewood, and 10 minutes from Lenox. Its central location creates access to the many charms of the Berkshires, while its secluded setting immerses you in a symphony of nature.
