Overlooking Tyringham valley, Morningside is set on 44 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. 16 rooms include a large kitchen, 7 bedrooms, one a palatial master suite, and 4 full and 2 half baths. A large 3-car carriage barn has a large vaulted room and full bath above. The Manor House dates back to the turn of the 19th century, almost twenty years after the Tyringham Shakers were established in 1782. The double entry doors, one for the Shaker Brothers and one for the Sisters, stand as testaments to the rich history of the home and the property. 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. Morningside was extensively renovated in 2005 to bring the home soundly into the twenty-first century in order to ensure that it lasts for another two hundred years. Examples of renovations in addition to those of living spaces are extensive basement and foundation and drainage work, all siding replaced, roofs redone as needed, plumbing, heating, electrical work, and a new Buderus heating system. Great care was taken to retain the scale and character of the original Shaker dairy and weave house. This is most evident in the main parlor with two fireplaces, and views across the valley beyond the deep wraparound porch. Life at Morningside is as much out of doors as it is within. The north border is flanked by the ruins of one of two Shaker dams that effectively provided power to the Tyringham community as a whole, and ran planers, saws, lathes and a cider press in the mill, known as The Red House, above the north dam. To the south lies the Appalachian Trail Corridor which runs from Georgia to Maine. To the west is a gunite pool and pool house, plus a swim pond with dock and float just above, perfect for lingering on a warm summer day. Apple trees dot the landscape around the Manor House, and a formal herb and flower garden is perfectly situated between the main house and the carriage barn. The Manor House is surrounded on two sides by a covered porch and breezeway and open to spectacular vistas to the east. Perennial gardens are planted along the perfectly maintained stone walls that run like ribbons throughout the hillside estate, some dating from the time of the Shakers. Across the quiet country lane run broad, verdant, terraced pastures and meadows stepping down the hillside and enfolded by lush woodland that leads you down to the floor of Tyringham valley. Additional acreage, residences, and equestrian facilities are potentially available as well. Please be advised the Main house is subject to prior sale in the form of a collective asset ownership wherein 6-8 parties own shares in an LLC which purchases the property. Shareholders of the LLC will be entitled to enjoy the property for approximately 6-8 weeks a year using a simple reservation process where there are no assigned specific weeks. Rather, owners can come and go based on availability and a rotating priority reservation protocol for peak holidays and seasons. Referral fee paid to brokers for LLC shares purchased. Shareholders can choose to exchange a portion of their travel rights in the main house ( we call it Manor house ) for time in sister LLCs with locations in St John, coastal South Carolina, Florida, Kauai, Anguilla and more. This enrichment is called " Reciprocity" and is available at no cost. Across the quiet country lane run broad, verdant, terraced pastures and meadows stepping down the hillside and enfolded by lush woodland that leads you down to the floor of Tyringham valley. Additional acreage, residences, and equestrian facilities are potentially available as well.
