Designed by world-class American architect Tom Kundig with gardens designed by British landscape architect Tom Stuart-Smith, Vergelegen is an impressive architectural residence sitting on nearly 300 acres in New Marlborough, Massachusetts. The property is on the market for $15.5 million. Listing details: Set on a rise of nearly 300 acres of rolling meadows, ponds, forests, and river frontage, Vergelegen is a Berkshire estate without parallel. Developed by two art historians in collaboration with an award-winning creative team composed of world-class American architect Tom Kundig, acclaimed British landscape architect Tom Stuart-Smith, and a Berkshires-based master builder. This is an iconic modern house that affords vast vistas of the Berkshire Hills and Taconic Mountains. With cantilevered decks and entire walls of glass that open mechanically, the house offers matchless indoor/outdoor living. Built around a central fireplace, the living area is open plan with an adjacent dropped-ceiling music room and an innovative public/private kitchen with a hidden galley butler’s pantry.
A long straight hallway runs the length of the upper floor, leading from the living room at one end, past the dining room, kitchen, a sound-proof office, two bedrooms (bathrooms en-suite), finally to the primary suite at the far end. The ground floor consists of a double-height entryway, heated garage, mudroom/tv room, wine storage, and laundry. The property also includes a newly renovated 1840’s farmhouse and bank barn, two charming full-season guest cabins, an art storage building, state-of-the-art equestrian facilities (including indoor and outdoor arenas, a 6-stall barn. 11 paddocks, and miles of trails), a lined spring-fed swimming pond and docks, a heated two-car garage, river frontage, and a covered bridge. Over five miles of estate roads, bridle paths, marked and groomed footpaths and destination sites for picnicking and cookouts make the entire estate and a lifetime of outdoor activity accessible. Vergelegen is on the market for $15.5 million with Elyse Harney Morris & Kenzie Fields of Elyse Harney Real Estate. Photography by Anne Day of Anne Day Photography & Benjamin Benschneider.
