Welcome to South House, a spectacular 115-acre turn-of-the-century estate in one of the loveliest spots in the Berkshires, affording the luxury of escape to a magical place with elegant echoes of the Gilded Age. Expansive emerald lawns frame the impressive yet supremely comfortable manor house, which commands glorious east and south views. Featuring the exquisite architectural details characteristic of America’s Colonial Revival, the mansion’s interior spaces are beautifully scaled with wonderful proportions, French doors and oversized windows, generous public spaces, and cozy nooks for intimate conversation. A welcoming center hall with its graceful staircase leads one to the living room, wood-paneled library, and stone porch, each with wood-burning fireplaces. To the left of the center hall are a large formal dining room with a stunning Georgian split-pediment over-mantel and a large game room with stone fireplace. Service areas are efficient yet compatible with the home’s historic character. On the second floor, the master suite comprises a sitting room with fireplace, bedroom, and bath. A den and three additional bedrooms with baths complete the second-floor. For outdoor enjoyment, there are a tennis court, heated paddle-ball court, swimming pond, stream with a footbridge and waterfall, sauna house, guest cottage, caretaker’s quarters, carriage barn, horse barn and trails.  Every grand estate should come with a storied past and this one does: once part of a Shaker community, the property much later was the home of the widow of Nat King Cole. Tyringham is known for its natural beauty and quietude, yet is convenient to chef-owned farm-to-table restaurants, downhill skiing, and world-class cultural venues. Luxurious yet simple in its country pleasures, South House estate, a unique and rare property that affords the very best of the rural yet sophisticated Berkshire lifestyle.
