When the family is here in the summer, we just like to sit on the upper deck (away from the splashing!) and watch the grand-kids play in the pool.
Our friends like to arrive at sunset for cocktails on the deck and to see the sun go down over the Berkshire hills.
I can’t say we find the views more special in one season or another. Fall is spectacular but so is the snow-covered mountains.

The full panorama of expansive and magnificent views is seen from nearly every room in the house. The 12± acre lot is private and set amid open fields, sweeping lawn, and extensive landscaping. Built in the 1960’s this Mid- Century Modern country home is sleek with clean lines, cathedral ceilings, and lots of 2-story glass windows. The 4-bedroom, 4-bath home is easy to live in with an open and logical flow and lots of natural light. Two levels allow for single floor living and accommodations for guests on the lower level. Large sliders and glass doors in each room open to the wrap around decking. The pool and hot tub are great spots to relax and just enjoy the view. In the winter, the 3 fireplaces in the living room, lower recreation area and the den make for cozy evenings. Located in the desirable town of Richmond (Lenox’s country cousin) this house is only minutes over the Lenox Mountain to Tanglewood.
