Stunning Greek Revival

Stunning Greek Revival in a Nationally Recognized Historic District! The Charles Owen House - a beautifully updated Greek Revival home, set on 2.4 sun-filled acres in the heart of Berkshire County. This historically signficant home was built in 1822 by Charles Owen, co-founder of the renowned Owen and Hurlburt Paper Company, to be his family residence. Sited well back from the road, in order to look down upon Owen's mill and paper company, the house commands a scenic view of what is now the South Lee Historic District and Beartown State Forest. With great attention to detail inside and out - reflective of the craftmanship and design of Greek Revival style - this architectural gem has been both preserved and tastefully updated.  Wide antique floors, four wood burning fireplaces (each with a unique mantle and hearth), gracious wood trim, and a large bay window create a warm and inviting atmosphere. Tall ceilings and large windows allow for ample natural light and speak to the home's prominent origins. A stately portico and handsome front door with half-length sidelights highlight the three-bay facade. Inside, two large living areas on the left are accessed via a side hall. The mid-19th century Italianate east ell hosts an intimate dining room and adjoining kitchen downstairs. The upstairs living quarters features a beautifully executed bedroom and en suite bathroom, three guest bedrooms, two full baths, and an office. A finished attic offers great rec room space or extra sleeping space. Outside, stone walls and walkways have been added by the current owner, enhancing an already elegant exterior.

The Charles Owen House is located in the hub of culturally dense Berkshire County, with Stockbridge, Lenox, and Great Barrington a short drive away.
