The home itself is a well preserved historical home from the 1930s-40s. The furnishings, fixtures and artwork are remarkable. My favorite is a small Picasso postcard that is whimsical and autobiographical in the extreme regarding Picasso's relationship with his wife, one mistress and his daughter--this...More

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. Whether you are interested in art and design, art history, architecture or lifestyle, our 46 acre estate right next to Tanglewood is discovered by more and more visitors to the Berkshires. Please come back!

Our guide was impressively knowledgeable and covered a great deal of information while leading us through the house and finally studio. The architecture is unique, but is showing its age and has deteriorated. Most rooms are original to the owners' taste and belongings.More

Talent, but not genius. Still, they gave it everything they had - and they had sufficient money to create this truly unique space. A glimpse into the elite American art milieu of the mid 20th century.

This is near the Tanglewood property so anyone heading to a Tanglewood concert on a Sunday afternoon, try and stop in for a tour. The house is intact with most of the owners furnishings with the exception of a few floors that had been refurbished....More

Off the beaten path, a bit eccentric, but fascinating tour of a corner of 20th Century art. Worth it on a second trip.

Yes, we have accommodations for those who cannot climb stairs and have a wheelchair or walker. We access the different levels with a golf cart transport. It is ideal to call ahead to make sure enough staff are available.
