And now it’s home suitable for a fairy tale.
A California couple decided to move east and keep this study in Tyringham, Massachusetts. Decades ago, it was a study of another kind.
In the 1920s, a local sculptor converted his backyard silo – originally purchased as grocery store gear – into a place where he could perfect his craft.
Large mill windows let in a lot of natural light for him to create. Today, that same light casts an ethereal glow over the second-floor bedroom.
Along the spiral staircase, a wooden stove and vintage decoration give the first floor a charm of a bygone era.
The two-story studio sits just behind Santarella, an apartment affectionately called Tyringham Gingerbread House – apt because it looks like a fairy tale.
The 450-square-foot home has one bedroom and one bathroom, and unique features such as Gothic doors and a resurfaced barn.
Today the couple describes the studio as a sculpture in itself. We think the sculptor would agree.
