Rehabilitation to rental.
We brought new life to the 15K square foot, 40 acre Freeman Berkshires estate, updating its brick and pine aesthetic to a minimalist modern destination for group rentals and events. We added a 1,500 sqft bluestone deck, edible gardens, game room, IT, three-acre vineyard and dock to provide guests with a wide variety of functional spaces to enjoy however they please.
This project is supported by the successful closing of the largest Equity Crowdfunding raise ever done in Berkshire County. The property is owned by 141 investors, investing as little as $1,000 each, from Wall Street and Main Street – for more information visit our funding page. This is the democratization of real estate. Reserve now.
The property is just over 100 miles from both Boston and New York City. It is roughly ten minutes from downtown Great Barrington and Egremont, less than ten minutes from Mt. Washington State and East Mountain State Forest and their extensive hiking trails. Bash Bish Falls and Catamount Ski Area are also close by. Harman Marsh Pond is onsite.
The original section of the estate was built in the 1800s with an Adirondack Lodge layout. The property was then acquired by the prior CFO of a Fortune Top 10 company, and a large red-brick addition was added, increasing the property to over 15,000 square feet. The rehabilitation used best-in-class materials, including imported marbles, hardwoods and giant pine.
Creating an escape
Stunning indoor-outdoor spaces and amenities, including massive outdoor patios and large swimmable pond. Enjoy dinner on the teak outdoor dining table or lounge to views of Mount Everett. Take a walk on your own 40 acres, enjoy the sculpture garden by leading artists.
The Freeman façade is a bright white lime-wash. Almost every fixture in the estate has been updated with minimalist modern versions. The kitchen was significantly updated and stocked with best-in-class amenities. From virtual reality gaming center to retro arcade, pool table and ping pong, the property has it all.
Private lake, docks and more
We provide a floating cabana, kayak, paddle board and two row boats. A five acre orchard and vineyard was installed in 2021 to round out the estate feel, offer unforgettable photos and soon provide fresh fruits and vegetables in-season to all guests.
These luxury foundations updated to a clean, modern aesthetic and outfitted with the best in functional, entertainment and technical accoutrements make The Freeman an attractive and memorable destination for a wide variety of stays, including reunions, anniversaries, birthdays, retreats and time to reconnect with friends and family.
