Once (and still) the most prestigious part of the city. Barbara and Alexander Euston inherited the home from Brendan's wife Katherine, Alexander's aunt, and lived here with the perfect balance of elegance and comfort. Because of Barbara's personal connection, upon her passing, she donated the home to Miss Halls School, the present owner.THE POMEROY HOUSE is replete with rich character and fine details. There is no less than 4, 336 sq ft of living space with 5 bedrooms, and 4 full baths. The center hall has a superbly elegant staircase and opens to the living room with a wood-burning fireplace, original built-in bookcases, a bay window overlooking the expansive grounds and opens to a screened porch, as well as the dining room with a second bay window, and 2 sets of original French doors, one of which takes you through to a stone-floor 3-season porch. A quietly handsome library has the home's second wood-burning fireplace, subtly, also adjoins the gracious center hall. The kitchen suite offers enormous potential with generous space but currently cut up into the original rooms: butler's pantry with original built-ins, kitchen, laundry room and larder. Up the back stairs takes you to the original servant's quarters with two bedrooms, a full bath, sitting room with fireplace and a storage room. Float up the lovely center hall staircase to the owner's suite with dressing room, full bath and sleeping porch. Across are two guest or family bedrooms, each gracious in their own way. A gated entry takes you through to the side yard and this is the first moment you will intuitively sense the echoes of the once lush and extensive gardens that once graced these remarkable grounds. Old stone walls peek out around the property, a lovely fountain is nearly hidden away and the mature landscaping just needs some simple taming. Simply put, you are surrounded by nature in the center of Pittsfield - an incredibly vibrant and integral part of the Berkshires. THE POMEROY HOUSE is one of the most spectacularly original colonial revival homes you will encounter, not just in the Berkshires, but anywhere in the USA. Largely unmuddled, the property has great bones and is merely waiting for the next stewards to make this fine property their own, a perfectly achievable and immensely worthwhile goal given the incredible value on offer at a very reasonable price.Improvements include:New gas burning furnace in 2015, water heater replaced in 2016, new electrical panel within the last 12 years with some updated wiring.

    Pure gorgeousness. I stalk this lovely site and have found so many houses I adore.

    The kitchen seems very functional as is other than striping and repainting the cabinets. I am an old time cook and still can and etc so I can see this as a great place to work. Is that a soap stone sink? How cool is that!?! Lots of storage in this pretty home and other than needing some sprucing up, it looks pretty good. This house gives the new owner the luxury of being able to live in it while you decide what really needs done and what should be left alone. After living and working in a few old homes, I have found that many things you think need changed rally don’t need any help from us at all to have a warm and wonderful home.

    Such an embarrassment of riches lately, but this is the one that made me bounce in my seat and squee with joy!

  4. I think I said, “Oh, my god!” after every picture of this gorgeous place–I’d move in tomorrow, thank you. Perfect.

  5. A dream house, I must say!

    And for those able to live in captivity, a very desirable location. One could get used to captivity, perhaps!

    Beautiful, flat land and enchanting yard.

    Another gem to add to the Old House Dreams Greatest Hits list.

    Wow, what a lovely house! A little spiffing up, and it’ll be just gorgeous! Love all of the built-in storage, too – tons of it.

    Glorious use of color in this house, and so appropriate to the period. That green paneled room knocks my socks off.

    Wouldn’t change a thing! Love it! The kitchen/butler’s pantry are fab and OMG! That yellow bath!

    The realtor for this beautiful house gets the prize for the most poetic description of a home. Enchanting!

    I know this house! I used to live in the area. It’s a decent neighborhood in Pittsfield. I think the price is rather reasonable.

  13. What a beautiful house! I loved every room they showed. I too love the built ins. There really is nothing I would change in this house. It is simply charming. Oh, how I would love to live there.
