The area around Richmond was settled as part of the town of Stockbridge in 1756. The town was set apart and incorporated in 1765, and named for Charles Lennox, 3rd Duke of Richmond. The town of Lenox, that grew from the village of Yokuntown, was also named for him when it was incorporated two years later.

 

The town was mostly agrarian until the discovery of iron ore in 1829, which led to an iron works which lasted into the twentieth century.  Today, the ironworks are days-gone-bye, however, the town remains entirely country for crop/animal farming & residential living/commuting.  There is no main street, per se.

OFFICIAL INFORMATION

There is misinformation regarding this property over many websites. This is due to a prior listing which has left legacy data; inaccurate data

caused by  "cookie-cutter"  forms that are not designed for presenting data for complex properties; unverified data from a pass-along listing such as Zillow ->  Trulia ->  Realtor ->  Specialized listing services etc. 

In all, it is a mess for both the Seller and the Buyer. Below is the most accurate information.  If there are questions about statements, or the absence of statements, please call or write per the Contact Page.

The Past

 

From the time of an English Kings land-grant over 2.5centuries ago, the land upon which Berkshire Meadow View LLC exists (also BMV, LLC dba "TIARA EQUEST")  has always been a natural, sustainable, farm, and stable.  Since the land grant, houses, barns, and out-building have been added along with the land being cleared and cultivated.  Over the same period, contiguous farms were bought and portions separately sold by the then-current owners.

 

Approximately 25 years ago, the main farmhouse and selected outbuildings were converted to an Inn.  The stables were sublet.  Today, the farm/stable, TIARA EQUEST, occupies 27 acres which comprise most core buildings for all past farm/stable transitions, transactions, and living.  

 

Executive Summary

 

TIARA EQUEST is located on a Revolutionary War farm-estate built 1774-1776 on am English Crown's Land Grant.  Through the centuries, it has been a prominent farm.  Prior to its becoming a bed and breakfast in 1995,  it was a private farm-estate which from the 1930s was respected for its Morgan horses, pedigreed dogs, and dairy.

TIARA EQUEST offers rooms, event spaces — including lawns for large tents — stalls, paddocks, and various amenities appropriate to The Berkshires which in 2009 were rated #7 in the World by National Geographic Magazine.

TIARA EQUEST offers its Colonial Equestrian Campus for Rest & Relaxation & Life/Business/Retreat/Functions such as Weddings, Workshops, Conferences, and other special events. 

 

TIARA EQUEST has maximized accommodations for humans and horses/animals have been with the notable exception of approximately 10 acres upon which The LLC has site plans to build three duplexes — 6 units — that comply with town code and fit the ambiance of the area.

TIARA EQUEST has 12 units that can provide 24 bed-nights at double occupancy and up to 41 bed-nights with the use of supplemental rooms and sleeping.

TIARA EQUEST has an equestrian center that can stable 32 horses in 32 box-stalls in 3 barns with 2 indoor arenas and 1 outdoor arena plus a turf galloping track, jump field, cross-country course, and proximal hacking trails.

TIARA EQUEST has a "campus" which extends from The Inn back to the Grand Prix Indoor Area and Penthouse.  All guest quarters, event rooms, and entertainment venues are contiguous to the campus which is lined with Sugar Maple trees.

TIARA EQUEST is located on 27 usable acres in the Taconic Range of the Berkshire Hills just 1.25 miles east of the New York State line.

TIARA EQUEST is contiguous with the towns of Lenox, Stockbridge, West Stockbridge, Pittsfield — all in Massachusetts — and Canaan which is located in Columbia County, New York. 

TIARA EQUEST is 4.5 miles to the City of Pittsfield's Executive Jetport, 8 miles to Interstate 90 (Mass Turnpike's last entry/exit) ... 7 miles to Lenox/Tanglewood... 9 miles to a Taconic Parkway on/off-ramps & approximately 34-37 miles (depending on the route) to the Interstate 87 - NY Thruway.

There are three main circuit breaker panels with nine sub-panels.                   

Without placing solar panels on the ground...

The Main Shaker Stable, L Barn, the small indoor Morse Arena & large indoor Scott Arena offer un-shaded western & southwestern exposure on black roofs.

TELEPHONE:  Service is provided by Magna 5 which bought Richmond Telephone.  There are 5 lines; 3 are for voice and DSL which lockout for fire alarms if necessary. The other two are dedicated to a fire alarm system. 

There is a legacy telephone system (switch & phones) that served The Inn and some cottages, but not the barns, stables, nor indoor arenas, the latter of which is separately served by one of the above-mentioned lines.  This telephone system's usefulness has been obviated by personal cellular telephone use.  The wiring still exists for re-use or re-purposing such as providing music.

 

INTERNET:      

Onsite wireless connection:  

3 DSL modems (Inn, L Barn, Indoor Arena) connected to three of the above lines provide coverage to all corridor buildings. 
Additionally,  WIFI is broadcast from The Inn via an Ayerstone antenna.  This system, if upgraded, can provide WIFI coverage over the entire property.

CABLE:   
         

TV cable enters The Inn which is distributed to the rooms/buildings around The Inn.  The service is disconnected in favor of television over WIFI via ROKU. 

Though the original TV cable still exists, it may not optimally meet the demands for the higher speeds of the Internet and the broader bandwidth of 4K. 
TV cable was not extended to the Main Barn, Scott & Morse Arena.  These buildings required signal via a satellite dishes or WIFI-based ROKU which is used.

ALARMS         

There are no entry alarm systems nor surveillance cameras on the property. 

There are two fire alarm systems (at The Inn and The Scott Indoor Arena) that are currently under evaluation.

It's important to comprehend resource availability, especially for compounds, partnerships & corporations

which have to consider resource use by the owner(s) plus perhaps the desire to mix outside rental income

to offset taxes, operational costs, repairs, and desired enhancements for an annual zero cost.

One's buying choice is not mutually exclusive:

One can really live in the country and still

have big city and worldwide access.

It is the best of both worlds!

What does all this mean?  An abundance of resources allows an abundance of possibilities!

Let's consider if this were a single family property -- exactly as it

was from 1776 to about 1995 -- and there were a family with four children and two parents, they could easily live in the Main Inn, with the parents having the Federal Suite and the children each having a separate room... each with a private bathroom with a shower.  There would still be a rooms/suite available for one set of grandparents, or -- depending on the room (such as Suite 1) a huge great room.  All the Units outside of The Inn would still be available -- that  would be five units with full kitchens... in short, livable apartments.  Hence, the family compound comes to life!

Let's consider multiple owners:  There are two constants: (1) 4,380 Unit Days and (2) the shared cost to buy-in which in this example is assumed to be equal, but in reality could be less based on occupancy criteria.  Whatever the number of owners, the agreement between them w/r/t rotating units / stalls etc. rules.  For the math to make matters simple, let's round-up to $4.8M which was our price before allowing for estimated betterments.  The math is easy.  Let's start with 2 owners:

 

# Owners   Unit-Days         Pro-rated       Cost         Pro-rated

                                                Unit-Days                          Buy-in

2                     4,380                     2,190       $4.8M       $   2.4M
