Unparalleled classic condo in Northampton just steps to downtown, Smith College and the Helen Hills Chapel.
The Chapel’s beautiful steeple is seen from this extraordinary home. The Leonard House was originally built in 1859 and became part of the Clarke School campus. It was superbly renovated by the owners into three luxury condos in 2007 with the perfect blend of period woodwork and updated amenities.
You will step back in time when you enter the home with elegant Victorian details, leaded glass and intricate tiles. The grand living room offers full length narrow windows that bring in the light, and a beautiful fireplace, with lovely touches from the past. Uniting the living and family room is the well-appointed eat-in kitchen with fireplace, granite counters, stainless appliances and two pantries. The family room has a wall of windows overlooking the Smith College campus and spacious yard with mature trees and beautiful landscaping. Off the family room is a large deck covered by a pergola. This home is perfect for gracious living and entertaining family and friends.
The second floor has an adorable balcony overlooking the yard and two sunny bedrooms connected by a Jack and Jill bathroom, updated to reflect the period. A third room upstairs makes a perfect office, studio, yoga room, or nursery. There is also a convenient stackable washer and dryer near the master. Throughout the home are dramatic high ceilings, crown moldings and coffered ceilings. This is a warm, inviting and memorable home.
Northampton is located in the bucolic Pioneer Valley of Western Massachusetts, also known as the Five College Area, and offers an exciting community of cultural exhibits, restaurants, music venues, shopping and medical facilities. You are approximately three hours from New York City, and two hours from Boston. The Amtrak Vermonter train services Northampton and runs from Washington, D.C to St Albans, Vermont.
