Brook Farm: a grand summer mansion and vineyard, coolly reinvented for the 21st century. Built between 1894 – 1898, the Bates Mansion, is an elegant Georgian Revival on 43+ acres defined by four-foot stone walls, perennial gardens, orchard, berry bushes, ponds and a four-acre vineyard and winery. The 8,082-square-foot mansion is light and sophisticated, with an engaging recent renovation. Spacious porches wrap around three sides and overlook the vineyards and mountains in the distance. The first floor is centered around the great room with its large fireplace, half-turn grand staircase and soaring elliptical balconied opening. The dining room is a Gilded Age confection brilliant in candlelight. The balance of the first floor offers a mix of sophisticated intimate spaces and a glorious open modern kitchen. Four of the eight bedrooms have fireplaces and three have private bathrooms. On the third floor, the former ballroom is now the ultimate playroom. With supporting buildings ranging from a variety of barns to a beautifully renovated farmhouse, this model gentleman’s farm offers graceful living and quiet beauty. Located just 6.4 miles from Okemo Mountain Resort.
