Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We purchased Santarella Estate as an historic preservation project and have spent the last decade renovating the property.

Why the Owner Chose Tyringham:
It is absolutely unique, created in the Storybook-Style architectural genre. It was an opportunity of a lifetime to own a one-of-a-kind property.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The estate has four acres of lovely gardens and grounds with several storybook buildings including the Tyringham Gingerbread House, the former carriage house on the estate. It features two 'Towers' which are also vacation rentals. The property is surrounded by rural farmland and has lovely views across the Tyringham Valley towards Beartown State Forest.
