If you’ve ever wanted to live in a fairytale-like haven, prepare to fall in love with this charming estate that just hit the market in Massachusetts. Set on nearly four acres in the town of Tyringham in the Berkshires, Santarella includes four structures modeled after rural British architecture with endearing features like timber-clad silos, over-sized thatching and vibrant, lush gardens.
Henry Hudson Kitson, an English sculptor known for his various Civil War memorials, previously owned the historic Santarella estate. The estate was recently renovated and includes stained glass windows and additional stonework. Santarella includes the Gingerbread House, a former 1880s barn that’s been turned into a banquet hall; the four-bedroom Colonial, a cottage renovated from a 20th-century post-and-beam shed; a quaint country cottage; and timber-clad silo studios.
In total, the 7,750-square-foot property includes seven cozy bedrooms and six bathrooms. In addition to the mature landscaped gardens, the picturesque grounds also contain a lily pond, brooks and bridges. Handcrafted details are everywhere at Santarella, where natural materials like timber and stone abound. However, fairytale living won’t come cheap — the estate is listed on Sotheby’s International Realty for $2,190,000.
