MODERN LIFE IN AN ELEGANT COUNTRY HOUSE
Renowned for its 19th century Cottages, the Berkshires (known as the inland Newport) boasts numerous wonderful homes of the era. It's a rare thing indeed when one has been beautifully restored for modern life and enjoyment; rarer yet that it exists on its original 40+ acres with fantastic views, in the very heart of Lenox, MA.
The offering, representing the original configuration, includes 101 and 107 Yokun Ave. as well as mid-century modern, 95 Yokun Ave.
Completed in 1929, the design of the main house reflects the English Craftsmen homes of the early 1900's which focused on human-scaled grandeur.
Also for sale as Commercial Property (#241178) That gorgeous balance survives today offering decidedly ample gathering spaces, rich in detail, yet always offering a scale suitable for guests, families and friends - small gatherings and large.
Th truly gracious main floor, with nearly all rooms facing south comprises the living room, library, dining room, conservatory and kitchens.
