An Anglophile’s Dream

I love Tudor styled homes! The archways, the limestone bay windows, the heavy oaken paneling, ivy that looks like it has been there for a hundred years – it all comforts me with the feeling of solidity and stability.  I can’t seem to find the architect, but I did find that the house was built in 1926. Whoever it was, they were extremely talented!

Let’s take a walk around the grounds first. Notice that lovely landscaping in the front. So formal, but welcoming. Now for a walk around back…

The back garden really extends the home. Not that it needs it! It has 5 bedrooms and lots of living space inside. A dining room with a fireplace is always enchanting. The archways, the chandelier, and the decor just make me want to walk right in. These archways are throughout the home. Fabulous!
You can see that this house has the best of old world charm and modern conveniences. I love this spacious, open kitchen too! I love the way you could get to the kitchen from anywhere in the house.
And don’t your just love the bookcases flanking those wonderful windows! I bet there’s a window seat over there too! That’s where I would spend my time!! I love this room!
I just had to include the bath because I think it’s fabulous! Calgon, take me away!!
