Original a pair of humble stone houses, this dreamy property in the scenic Berkshires region of Massachusetts has evolved into a generous compound clocking in at 9,300 square feet. After it sold to L.A. couple Holly and Eric Montgomery—she an artist and stylist, he the co-founder of popular nail polish brand OPI—in the early 1990s, the 1929-built dwelling got 6,000 square feet of additions, including a grand dining and double-height living room boasting a massive stone fireplace and numerous French doors overlooking extensive courtyards.
Per a 2012 Elle Decor feature on the property, the newly added spaces reference the existing architecture through materials that include old Fenestra windows, reclaimed timber, and of course, the exact type of stone used in the original buildings. The residence, which features dreamy screened porches and stone-walled bedrooms, has great views out to the 43-acre grounds, a serene mix of lawns, woodlands, a swimming pool, full-size riding arena, and cascading creek.
