Overview

About the property

Country House/Chateau, 5 BR + Convertible bed(s), 5.5 BA (Sleeps 10-14)

Just steps to Tanglewood Main Gate and Kripalu from this dramatic three-story shingle style contemporary with five bedrooms and five and a half baths. The six hundred square foot great room has a soaring ceiling, fireplace, interior balcony, and multiple French doors and windows to overlook the beautiful southeast view over Tanglewood and Lenox. The deck and screened porch, off the gourmet kitchen, offer dining al fresco and panoramic mountain views of sunset and sunrise. A very unique home based in the classics with 4500 sq ft of easy living on almost 2 acres.

Situated minutes from Downtown Lenox, this country chic home is great for entertaining friends and family, while offering a calm, secluded and romantic setting upon a hill. All bedrooms are en suite for an elegant Berkshires weekend and longterm vacation getaway, year-round. Large interior doors and huge exterior windows create a loft-like feeling in every room.

The bold design is balanced with traditional shingle style elements and reminiscient of the famous W.G. Low House in Bristol, RI, designed by McKim, Mead, White in 1887.

This house was built in 2003 with quality materials inside and out, and includes a three-car garage, a media/recreational room, and fantastic guest quarters on different levels. Top of the line appliances and granite counters in the kitchen, and central air throughout for modern living. It is located on one of the most beautiful roads in Lenox, MA.

An absolutely perfect choice!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been more delighted with our stay at the Davila home in Lenox. The accommodations, the view, the layout, the porches, the kitchen, the fire pit, the location--every aspect of this home was even more perfect than we'd expected it could be, and our hopes were high. We all loved our time at the home so much, in fact, that we now plan to make Lenox (and the Davila home) a yearly destination and family gathering place!!

this is a beautiful gracious home. even nicer than the photos.

  • 5 of 5

We found this lovely home to be well equipped with everything we could ever need, including a few we don't even have in our own home! The light and air , contemporary furnishings and great location combined to make this the perfect vacation get a wayl

The owner was very responsive throughout the process and easy to communicate with overall.

We had fabulous dinners on the large comfortable deck and several competitive table tennis matches in the downstairs.

Visiting Tanglewood, Jacobs Pillow and the Shakespeare Company were all wonderful experiences, but the best part of the day was coming back to this refuge.

I would highly recommend it to friends and family.

Beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here for our son's wedding at the end of August. It was the perfect place for the family to relax between wedding events. Luz was very welcoming and easy to deal with, and the house couldn't have been more attractively furnished, even better than the photographs.
