This house reminds me SO much of Lion Manor/Chilton House. It has to have been built by the same person.

Set along the West Branch of the Housatonic River, this magnificent circa 1911 estate looks out over the 3.7± bucolic acres with majestic mature trees, lawns and gardens. The circular driveway with porte-cochere and fountain create an impressive and welcoming entrance. The main house has exquisite Colonial Revival details throughout the interior and exterior. The layout of rooms creates a wonderful flow for entertaining. The gracious living and dining rooms flank the front to back entry hall. A fabulous terrace runs the full length of the house with access to the screened porch, the sun room and the covered porch. The spacious master suite has its own fireplace, dressing room and bath. There is an elegant master guest suite with fireplace and private bath. In total there are 7 bedrooms and 5.5 baths in the main house. On the third floor is a beautifully paneled game room.

The guest house over the large, heated 3-bay garage has an open plan kitchen-dining-living room, two bedrooms and a bath. The carriage house has 2 bedrooms, 2 baths and a very charming and spacious great room with kitchen and dining area. The impressive car barn houses a car museum on the first floor and banquet space, a kitchen, an office and display cabinetry on the second floor. The property has been exceptionally maintained and is in pristine condition. Its central location in Pittsfield provides easy access to the many cultural and recreational venues in Berkshire County.

Pittsfield is about 3 hours to New York City, about 2.5 hours to Boston, less than an hour to Albany Airport and about 1.5 hours to Hartford (Bradley) Airport. Some of Vermont's best ski slopes are within 2 hours.
