A Magnificent 31-Acre Estate in the Berkshires Dubbed Ethelwynde Hits the Market
Sitting in the lush, green Berkshire Mountains, this 31-acre estate with plenty of grand pizazz is new on the market asking $5.9 million. It is the only “Great Estate” in Lenox, Massachusetts that is still a private residence, with many mansions in the area now functioning as museums or monuments in a similar fashion as in Newport, Rhode Island. Built in 1929, the estate known as Ethelwynde nods to the extravagant ‘20s, boasting commanding rooms and ornate architectural details. Just like its enchanting natural surroundings, it allures onlooking buyers with magnificence and warm tones.
No one could accuse the 11,748-square-foot English manor-style home of being cramped. Each room is generous in size, with the first floor holding an array of divine living spaces and a large kitchen and pantry, perfect for entertaining on a large scale. Bonus rooms that will also come in handy for parties include a wine cellar, media room, and game room.
The main house has an astounding amount of bedrooms, 11 to be exact. If guests seek more privacy, a juxtaposing midcentury guesthouse also sits on the property with two bedrooms and two baths. Whenever the tranquility of country life gets boring, the property is also close to downtown Lenox for quick jaunts of dining or shopping.
