Magical estate Property in the Berkshires with 7 - Stall Barn and acreage!
Williamstown, Berkshire County, Massachusetts
Offered for the first time ever, High Mowing, is a magical Williamstown estate spread over fifteen glorious acres, and nestled in the hills less than 5 minutes from Williams College. This exquisitely welcoming home is different from any other property in the Berkshires, and it seamlessly integrates beautiful nature and sophisticated culture in an incomparable and eclectic way. The property has been meticulously developed with an artist's eye and a craftsman's hand to blend perfectly with its environment, complementing the colors and textures of surrounding fields, woods, and mountains, exposed under the huge open sky of day and starry nights.
Major design elements by globally-renowned architect Fred Koetter are outstanding. Everywhere the house sparkles with locally-gathered quartz, marble, and granite, lovingly crafted by Italian mason Cesare Boni.
Enter through this vibrant stonework or directly along an accessibility ramp and you are instantly transported into this special world. The house encompasses over 5,500+ square feet of versatile living and entertainment areas, with 5 inviting bedrooms and 5 full baths (one handicap accessible) and intimate spaces for conversation or solitude. Views of the expansive property, adjoining preserved land, and the mountains beyond delight from almost every room. Ample windows and doors spill out to multiple patios and terraces anchored by large natural stone and enormous decks. The list of amenities is truly endless but begins at the center of the home with a stunning wood paneled library and its ornate Italian marble fireplace, extending through a magnificent formal dining room into two full kitchens and a private en-suite. Massive living areas with floor-to-ceiling glass join your intimate interior to stunning nature outside. Away from common spaces, a huge and perfectly private light filled studio/workspace offers its own fireplace, en-suite and kitchenette. The inspired floor plan creates distinctive areas to relax and unwind with others or enjoy the blissful solitude High Mowing offers. All of these features and much more merge together beautifully to create an unrivaled retreat of 15+ gorgeous Berkshire acres on a historic Williamstown by-way where dawn peers in over Mount Greylock and dusk settles on the Taconic Range. It will at once take your breath away and fill you with new life.
From the house, into the grounds and fields beyond, you witness the seasons turn from lush greens of summer to the splendor of fall foliage and the snows that blanket Sheep Hill. The great deck overlooks mature gardens to the superb scenic vistas beyond. Perennials, fruit trees, grape arbors, bushes overflowing with blueberries and raspberries -- all meticulously cultivated to provide vibrant color throughout the growing season. A plentitude of wildlife roams the grounds - deer, fox, wild turkey, hawk are your constant companions. Further highlights include a 7-stall barn complete with tack room, shed, and paddock.
Endless possibilities for exceptional Berkshire living await; you will need to see High Mowing to believe it!
