Have you been dreaming of a spa retreat? How about the opportunity to be pampered with access to unparalleled resort amenities right at your front doorstep? A residential possibility unlike any other now exists at Canyon Ranch® in the Berkshires, allowing the chance to indulge in a world-class atmosphere of luxury, health and wellness each and every day. The highly acclaimed company has recently announced the launch of Canyon Ranch Residences at Bellefontaine, a collection of exquisitely designed condominiums at its 120-acre Lenox, Mass. location. Listing agents Gladys Montgomery and Marc Bachman of our Berkshire brokerage proudly represent this unique housing option, serving as the exclusive sales and marketing agents. Top New York-based broker Nikki Field will serve as a referral agent for the property.
Centered around the century-old Bellefontaine Mansion, a restored historic structure and replica of Louis XVI’s Petit Trianon in the heart of the wooded Berkshires, the Residences at Bellefontaine will be comprised of 19 beautifully appointed luxury condos, six of which are already under contract. Available units range from 1180 square feet to 2060 square feet, and from $1.35 to $2.3 million. Each will have access to the renowned facilities and programming that have earned Canyon Ranch its esteemed global reputation. A recent Boston Magazine article describes the opportunity as a dream come true, stating that “for health junkies, Canyon Ranch is basically heaven.” The enterprise has been a pioneer and industry-leading proponent of the wellness lifestyle for nearly 40 years, operating the world’s most celebrated collection of life-enhancement properties. Between this stellar reputation and the current surge in the wellness market, which, according to the Global Wellness Institute, is clocking double-digit growth with wellness lifestyle real estate up 18.6%, there is no doubt that the Residences at Canyon Ranch will be a great success and healthy addition to the Berkshires.
Located approximately two-and-a-half hours from Boston and New York City, this project marks the revolutionary brand’s first residential community in the Northeast region, rounding out Canyon Ranch’s impressive portfolio of residences across its destination resorts. Residences are also for sale at the company’s Tucson, Ariz., and Kaplankaya, Turkey locations.
“For so many guests who stay at our resorts, well-being becomes a lifelong mission and journey,” said Susan E. Docherty, CEO of Canyon Ranch. “Canyon Ranch is a lifestyle and with the Residences at Bellefontaine, residents have the opportunity to make a permanent connection with our incredible services.”
The Canyon Ranch Residences offer buyers the advantage of seamlessly integrating premier health and enriching lifestyle amenities within a tight-knit, supportive community of like-minded neighbors. Whether in search of a second home in this highly sought-after, culturally rich region of western Massachusetts, or perhaps just a devoted fan of Canyon Ranch, future residents will benefit from the residences’ transformative environment, which enables all to live life to the fullest in every way.
Staying healthy is simple at the residences at Canyon Ranch, where residents will enjoy gourmet, healthy meals prepared by top chefs, in addition to direct access to experts in medicine, nutrition and exercise. Other signature Canyon Ranch services and amenities that will be available include Spiritual Wellness, a Guided Labyrinth Experience; Sports Performance, which offers comprehensive exercise assessments; Complementary Medicine, including sleep studies; and the Executive Health Package, where an integrative health team develops an individualized wellness plan. As if that isn’t enough, the residences are also within walking distance from local shops, galleries, restaurants, museums and other cultural attractions native to the Berkshires such as the iconic music venue Tanglewood, The Norman Rockwell Museum and The Mount, the home of noted American author Edith Wharton.
Designed by architect Robert E. Harrison, with interior design by William Caligari Jr., the stunning residences are connected to the resort’s world-class spa facilities through climate-controlled walkways. The diversely designed units, all of which are constructed with eco-friendly materials, contain open, spacious floor plans and high, architecturally detailed ceilings. Features include gas fireplaces in the living room and master bedroom, walnut-paneled entry doors, custom-designed cabinetry, quality kitchen appliances, stone countertops, a full-size washer and dryer, ample closet space and hardwood floors throughout. Multiple balconies and terraces overlook the surrounding property, which is pristinely maintained by Canyon Ranch site planning and landscape installation. The resort also includes climate-controlled underground parking with elevator access as well as 24-hour on-site security.
“Lenox is a vibrant Berkshire town that exemplifies the culture, natural beauty and wonder of the region,” Montgomery said. “Canyon Ranch embodies the spirit of the Berkshires by providing a luxurious, healthful experience to guests and residents alike.”
“This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to enjoy luxury living in the beautiful Berkshires while embracing a balanced, wellness-focused lifestyle,” added Bachman.
