Enjoy the best of casual elegant country living in this spectacular 6 bedroom, 6 bathroom (including one bathroom in the pool house) Old Chatham stunner. Swim in the heated Gunite pool or take a dip in the spring-fed pond, or do both. Walk the 73 mostly wooded acres or play on your own country golf course (3 holes, water trap, no greens). In fall and winter relax in front of a huge stone fireplace or stand around the firepit roasting marshmellows.
One of the bedrooms has 2 bunk beds and sleeps 4, each of the other 5 bedrooms (including 2 masters with full bathrooms) has a queen-sized bed. The house has centrail air conditioning, beautiful cherry floors, too many windows to count, a steam shower, a media room with a 300 movie DVD collection, Direct TV, Wi-Fi , pool and ping pong tables, and offers unparalleled relaxation and privacy to the discriminating renter.
Gourmet cooks and serious grillers will love the fully equipped indoor and outdoor kitchens. The indoor kitchen comes complete with 2 dishwashers, a commercial oven and plenty of counter space and accessories to satisfy the most demanding cook. The outdoor kitchen has both gas and charcoal grills and a separate burner. The pool house has a full sized refrigerator/ freezer, separate beverage/wine cooler, dishwasher and ice maker. After dinner, you might want to cook s'mores around the large fire pit. The large screened porch overlooks both the pond and the pool and can seat 12 for dinner. There is an outdoor shower, a small tree house and plenty of open lawn on which to play soccer, baseball, lacrosse or football. Add to all this over 2000 square feet of decks and bluestone patios on 2 levels and you have one of the most spectacular homes in Columbia county.
The house is 1.5 miles from the Old Chatham Country Store and less than 8.5 miles from the Town of Chatham. It is a short distance from all the Berkshire cultural activities.
The house includes an on-call caretaker..
We are NYC based family that built this house as a refuge from our busy lives in the city. The house reflects our interest in being surrounded by natural beauty and casual luxury. When we travel, we occasionally rent the house to families who we think will enjoy the house as much as we do.
Jane Stone purchased this house in 2003
We have been coming to this area dor many years and selected this house in this town because it offers a rare level of sophisticated casual country living .
This is just a great place to relax with friends and family!!
Athough the surrounding areas offers a large and varied amount of activities and cultural destinations, one can spend a very happy week here without ever leaving the property. The pool area is beautiful, the woods bountiful and the on-site activities varied and fun.
An ideal summer day:
- Arise and take a run or bike ride on the near empty surrounding country roads. After a refreshing outdoor shower, and swim in the heated pool, eat breakfast on the screened-in porch and then sit by the pond and read the morning paper. For lunch, cook pizza or fresh corn on one of the grills and then spend time hitting golf balls on the 3 hole golf course. The first drive is a couple of hundred yards over the pond and up to a slight hill. The closet to the flag wins the hole. An afternoon sitting by the pool and then preparing for dinner can be very relaxing. Finish the evening with s'mores and drinks around the fire pit and you will have experienced a perfect day in the country.
2 1/2 hours from Manhattan, 2 1/4 hours from Boston and 16 miles from Lenox MA.
There are 6+ golf courses in the area, 3 ski mountains, 2 adventure parks (for the kids), many museums and parks and lakes/ponds, horse back riding, many farm stands and lots of antique shops and vineyards to visit. The world class theatre, museums and music in near-by Lenox, Williamstown and Hudson make with a great place to become immersed in terrific cultural activities.
