Contemporary Federal Estate On The Hill In Great Barrington
Complete 2012 rebuild and seamless expansion of a gracious home on The Hill in Great Barrington, into a stunning timeless and modern Federal estate, perched on a notable parcel with a barn and private spa pool. No detail was overlooked inside or out from custom everything to geothermal heating and cooling. Too many amenities to list, including central A/C, full house generator, Pella true divided light windows throughout, Rocky Mountain hardware, Lutron lighting, spray foam insulation, double insulated floors, and most all of the house has radiant heated floors and of course state-of-the-art mechanicals. The three acres are beautifully landscaped and include a spa pool with a waterfall and auto cover, bocci court, invisible dog fence, a seasonal stream, and a barn. Walk to town. The open great room kitchen has marble and black granite counters, Wolf, Miele and Sub Zero appliances, a Butler's kitchen with even more, dining for a crowd, and a family media lounge with a stacked granite fireplace with metal-lined wood storage and a cathedral ceiling. An outdoor grilling station is nearby. The more formal living and dining room are adjacent, along with a music room, den or home office, and a large guest or possibly a first floor master suite in the south wing. Convenient for country living, a large mud room is connected to the oversized two-car garage and offers plenty of outerwear storage, one of two laundries, and one of two half baths on the first floor. French doors lead from most rooms to outdoor patios and porches. While ascending to the second floor, note the custom metal and woodwork that create both front and back stairways. Here you will find a large center hall leading on in one direction to three ensuite bedrooms and the second laundry, and in the other to a sumptuous master suite sitting room with a gas fireplace, fully outfitted dressing room with appropriate built-ins, and a marble bathroom with a deep tub and steam shower. All bathrooms are similarly finished in marble. The lower level has a 1000 bottle wine cellar and a family room with a study and craft area. Above the attached garage is a bright guest or caretaker apartment, loaded with large windows in the cathedral main room, a kitchen area, full bath, and separate room for a bedroom or gym. Too many amenities to list include central A/C, full house generator, Pella true divided light windows throughout, Rock Mountain hardware, Lutron lighting, spray foam insulation, double insulated floors, and most all of the house has radiant heated floors, and of course state-of-the-art mechanicals. The three wide acres are beautifully landscaped and include a spa pool with a waterfall and auto cover, bocci court, invisible dog fence, a seasonal stream, and a barn. All this, yet one may walk to town from the lovely neighborhood. Unmatched quality, taste, craftsmanship, situation and location - a wonderful home to live in year round or seasonally.
