Experience the ultimate country escape in the Berkshires, at Atwater Pond, a magical, consummately private 321-acre woodland property, with its own private 33-acre lake and exceptional lakeside compound. A chic lake home with walls of glass sits on the water's edge, while a guesthouse offers a private master suite and sleeping for seven, and an Airstream and bunkhouse offer additional space for a property that can accommodate 20. The property's extensive shoreline encompasses a historic boathouse, three docks, a sandy beach, a deep-water swim area, and a waterfall. An outdoor soaking tub, overwater swing and hammock, lakeside fire-pit, and paddock and run-in for horses complete this one-of-a kind property. The land is comprised of old wood forest, open meadow, and scenic marsh areas, all connected by a private 4.5-mile trail system. One enters this exclusive gated property via a quarter-mile tree-lined drive. Owned and beloved by one family for the past 50 years, the property has recently been reimagined with modern updates and renovations. Providing seclusion and enjoyment for as many as 20 overnight guests, Atwater Pond is a modern sanctuary for indoor-outdoor living and an unparalleled life-style. While this secluded waterfront retreat provides absolute privacy, it is also within 10 minutes of award winning dining and near world-renowned cultural attractions. Located just over two hours from Boston and New York City, a few miles from the Connecticut border, and 45 minutes from Bradley International Airport, this extraordinary property can also be accessed by its own private helicopter pad. Offered turnkey with all furnishings and recreational equipment. THE LAKE A pristine 33 acre lake is surrounded by fields, forest and rock outcroppings. Its shoreline is dotted seasonally with pink mountain laurel in early summer and 41 blueberry bushes, which fruit in mid- summer. It is spring and stream fed. Built in the late 1800s, it most probably could not be created today. It comes replete with canoes, kayaks, paddle boards, and fishing boat. THE LAND A groomed 4.5-mile trail system rims the pond and the property perimeter, allowing easy access to streams and footbridges, forest bathing, fields of ferns, and wild ramp and mushrooms for foraging. If desired, old growth forest could allow for a considerable return in timber value and a robust forest management program. The property's 321 acres are further protected on the northwest corner where it abuts The Sandisfield State Forest. WILDLIFE Atwater Pond is a unique natural habitat for myriad wildlife. The lake itself is home to rare fresh water clams and sizable bass and pickerel for fishing. The far side of the lake is home to beavers, muskrats, and otters by water, and deer, moose, and coyote by land. In this unique private wildlife sanctuary, more than 55 bird species have been identified in a single day. HISTORY Over the last 50 years, the 321-acre property was strategically assembled from contiguous parcels and grown into a remarkable land asset. One of the largest properties of its kind in the southern Berkshires, it is unmatched in the region. Atwater Pond is a storied property-once the summer place of President Grover Cleveland and a topic included in numerous history books. THE COMPOUND Main House The mid-century modern home, poised as it is on the water's edge, could not be built today due to conservation restrictions. The home is distinguished by walls of glass and lake views from every space. This gorgeous home, which sleeps eight, features serene white walls that shimmer with light reflected from the lake. It is a home designed for modern living. Its great room features two sitting areas, one rimmed by lakeside windows, the other centered around a wood-burning fireplace. The great room is open to a true cook's kitchen replete with Wolf range, Fisher Paykel refrigerator, Bosch dishwasher, and durable countertops of Vermont marble. The great room's dining area, opens to the deck through a wall of glass bi-fold doors for superb indoor-outdoor flow. The large deck includes a sitting area with fire table and table for outdoor dining; wooden stairs link it to the morning dock, a favorite spot for morning coffee. Close to the main house, on one side of the morning dock, a tasseled swing for two is suspended over the water from a towering oak tree. On the opposite side of the morning dock, a cedar soaking tub that accommodates six rests on a promontory of land beneath twin evergreens. Guest House The guest house, which sleeps seven, is the original building on the property. Built at the turn of the 20th century, it has been restored and reimagined for modern living. The guest house's great room encompasses a galley kitchen with a waterfall Pietra del Cardosa marble counter, a seating area, three bunk beds, and a staircase that leads up to a sleeping loft. Adjacent to the great room, a private master suite features a floating tub that rests in front of floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook an outdoor shower and woodland view. Airstream Tucked among the trees and also with lake views, the Airstream features a kitchen, dining area, queen bedroom, and additional twin bed, providing sleeping for 3. It is equipped with all hook-ups for long-term stays and can be accessed via its own private driveway. The Airstream site is complete with deck, outdoor seating, and an original outdoor stone fireplace. Bunkhouse Containing two bunk beds and a game space, the bunk area of this summer building is entered through large double doors on one side and framed by double Dutch windows on the other. On the adjoining side of the building is an art room for kids of all ages. Boat House The boat house was built in the late 1800s and remains just as it was then. Outside, a boat launch, a large dock, paddle boards and an array of boats, a sandy beach, and an overwater hammock provide for enjoyment of the water and the view. The current owners reinterpreted the interior for entertaining, with a bar and seating for sunset cocktails. Horse Paddock and Run-In The shaded horse paddock and run-in were used by the owners, who brought their horses to the property every summer. Trails onsite and Sandisfield's 52 miles of unpaved roads provide for endless horseback riding on and off the property. Fire Pit and Swim Dock A swim dock and nearby water trampoline invite swimming and water play. The adjacent lawn area features a large fire pit encircled by six Adirondack chairs serenaded by the sound of the waterfall nearby. Close by, a wooden bridge leads to the Pond Loop Trail. THE AREA Well known for its scenic beauty, outdoor recreation, food scene, wellness mindset, and world-class cultural assets, the Berkshires is the only vacation destination convenient to New York and New England cities that combines all of these lifestyle amenities. In the nearby town of new Marlborough are four popular and award winning eateries: Gedney Farm, The Old Inn On the Green, Cantina 229, and The Southfield Store.
