Set apart by its extraordinary scope, beauty, and privacy, this property stretches across 350Â± acres of idyllic countryside in the famed Berkshire Hills, presiding over a mountaintop realm in the midst of vast rolling woodlands and open meadows which provide the setting for its various residences and comprehensive equestrian facilities. This one-of-a-kind country estate creates a gathering place for family and friends to enjoy the relaxation and sporting life of this worlds-away natural paradise, glorious in every New England season, also offering an excellent opportunity for potential subdivision or expansion on numerous sites of the acreage. Winding its way through the sylvan landscape, highlighted by a tranquil pond, a mile-long drive arrives at the mountaintop main residence, designed by noted architect Milton Klein as a striking modern adaptation of the traditional farmhouse. Beautiful terraces and gardens, a naturalistic pool with waterfalls and cabana, and a tennis court are featured on the gorgeous park-like grounds designed by renowned landscape architect Armand Benedek, who collaborated on the gardens at Kykuit, the Rockefeller familyâ€™s Hudson River Valley estate. From outdoors and inside the home, with its generous spans of glass, breathtaking long-range vistas unfold in all directions, reaching Great Barrington to the east, Mount Washington to the south, and west to the Taconic Mountains of New York State.
