Located on prestigious Cliffwood Street within walking distance of downtown Lenox, this exceptionally welcoming Berkshire "cottage" on 3.17 acres epitomizes gracious living with a porte cochere and sixteen fireplaces . Meticulously restored and updated, the six-bedroom house has many original architectural details such as paneled walls, carved mantelpieces and a two-tier staircase with an oculus on the second floor that overlooks the generous foyer (large enough for a baby grand piano.) The main floor has exceptional flow for a 19th century house: The library and living room with adjoining den (separated by pocket doors) have massive French doors that open onto a large screened porch; the dining room, with built-in corner cabinets, and billiards room are ideal for entertaining; the cook's kitchen with capacious dining and lounge areas opens onto a large deck. The adjacent mudroom, with a contoured entry doors, still has the original "call board" for the servants. In the basement, there's the original ice room and a dumb waiter for transporting firewood to the upper floors. This property has a gracious driveway, mature gardens, a privately situated swimming pavilion and a barn-like garage that can accommodate five cars. One of the few 19th century cottages that has been maintained as a private residence, this is a rare opportunity to live in a park-like setting so close to town.
