HAND-CRAFTED DETAILS LEND CHARACTER TO THE INHERENT BEAUTY, SIMPLICITY AND ELEGANCE OF THE HOME. 8 BEDROOMS INCLUDING A GUEST SUITE, POOL, & SWIM POND, See Suppl PLEASE SEE SUPPLEMENT FOR COMPLETE DETAIL An iconic Berkshire estate, Morningside combines a central location with superb natural beauty overlooking Tyringham valley, with a rich Shaker and Gilded Age history. Morningside is set on 44 acres (potentially available with over 115 acres) with a circa 1800 Manor House originally constructed by the North Family of the unique Tyringham Shaker community, pool, pool house, swim pond, extensive stonework and stunning perennial gardens. The permanently protected U.S. Appalachian Trail borders the land to the south. The setting is both spectacular and blissfully quiet without being isolated. You are in the very heart of the Berkshires and Tanglewood is only ten miles away.

While there are numerous luxuries, there is both beauty and simplicity in the inherent elegance of the home. Period, hand-crafted details throughout the home include rich wood floors, exposed post and beam old-growth timbers, colonial-era hardware and woodwork, and millwork. The sixteen rooms include a large kitchen that has evolved into a keeping room, seven bedrooms, one a palatial master suite, and four full and two half baths. A large three-car carriage barn has a guest suite (8th bedroom) above. The library features a hand-painted wall mural evoking the history of the property and the character of the Berkshires, the breakfast room has French doors opening to a stone terrace, and the master suite with a marvelously high ceiling, antique beams, wood-burning fireplace, sitting room, office and expansive bath.
