Berkshire Homes: Osceola Mansion, by architects Rotch and Tilden in 1889 who also designed Ventfort Hall, Belvoir Terrace


It's named Osceola Mansion because from its perch at 25 Cliffwood St. in Lenox, this 10-bedroom, 9 1/2-bath Berkshire Cottage has a view to Osceola Mountain on Yokun Ridge.

Commissioned by Sarah Pollock Livingston and built in 1889, the mansion was designed by architects Rotch and Tilden of Boston, who, in their day, ran one of the busiest architectural offices in New England. In Lenox, they also designed Ventfort Hall and Belvoir Terrace.

The 7,393-square-foot home sports 14 rooms and seven fireplaces. With a recently renovated interior, its unique features include an entry foyer with fireplace and an oval dining room.

Out back, the mansion has an 80-foot veranda, which immediately overlooks a terraced lawn and in-ground pool.

The property, on 1.12 acres, is listed by Matthew Marlow of Berkshire Homes and Condos for $2.6 million.
