JAW DROPPING VIEWS OVER LAKE GARFIELD and the Berkshire Hills all the way to the Catskills on the other side of the Hudson River. An historic 1910 Craftsman Mountain Lodge was recently enlarged and renovated from stem to stern, maintaining the original integrity while incorporating a chic modern kitchen and sumptuous baths, with new systems throughout, including a new two-story garage/guest house with a large vaulted great room, service kitchen bath, and more. Not one square inch was overlooked while recreating this special property, from the winding drive and stone foundation to panoramic views from every room - rarely is such a sensitive and thoughtful renovation accomplished. Blinding, sunlit, crisp white rooms to warm original Fir walls and ceilings, and a stone fireplace, offer numerous escapes for family and friends. Some will enjoy relaxing on the wide covered veranda sipping their pleasure, while others read the Times and watch sailboats tack on the lake below, as the sun sets over the mountains. The guest quarters/studio above the garage is loft-like in scale and feel with clearstory windows and a dramatic vaulted ceiling. More rooms offer opportunity for an office, gym equipment, etc. Hike out the backdoor up Chestnut Hill to a landing for a destination folly build. No other property on the market in the Berkshires today offers such numerous amenities within approachable scale, and a drop dead view such as this.
