The Skinny: Built in 1906 for banker Hildreth Bloodgood, Mepal Manor was named for the owner's prize-winning show horse, the “Star of Mepal.” In his time on the property, Bloodgood would import more than one hundred horses from England to this Western Massachusetts farm. But if the horses had it good at Mepal Manor, so too did the people, living in the country splendor of the 28,000-square-foot manor house itself. Recently renovated and repurposed as a country inn, the manor has 12 bedrooms, 13.5 baths, ten fireplaces, a "Moroccan-style salon," and a gymnasium that's been converted into a full service spa. Three hours by car from New York City or Boston, this $3.6M mansion would make an impressive summer home for a city family willing to forgo the beach in favor of architectural significance and 41 acres of privacy.
