This little tudor is in my neighborhood. It went up for sale last month and sold within a week.
I shared this home last year when it got Yard of the Month.
At the time...I didn't get upstairs photos and I was losing the light when I took the photos
so I thought it a good idea to share these again.
Some of these are my photos and some are the realtor's photos.
The front yard has a natural landscape. The grass is buffalo grass.
The owners took out the front stone steps and manicured the lawn before putting it up for sale.
This is how the yard appeared last year.
I guess they were afraid new potential owners would not like the wilder look of this.
This home was abandoned for years in the neighborhood.
It was owned by a family that moved out long ago but did not want to sell it.
So the home sat empty for like 20 plus years. Cats and raccoons were living in it!
Finally, the owners pushed by the neighborhood's attorney...agreed to sell it.
The new owners had a monumental task of getting this home back into shape.
I love the balcony that looks over the two story living room.
Notice the brick fireplace?
When I toured the home last year...the fireplace was just rough brick remnants of what had been before.
If you'll notice the brick is flush to the wall.
The owners built it out from the wall.
An interesting choice...it still feels vintage. I had this same situation in my own home.
Someone has ripped out my fireplace decades ago.
I built a fireplace made of antique tile and new antique looking tile to resemble a fireplace of the
This fireplace would not be what would have been originally.
There are only a few brick
fireplaces in the neighborhood - most are tile.
Although it's not original...it works in this home. I'd add a mantel. Something rustic.
Ok, I'm not sure if that is how that light fixture in the dining room is suppose to be
or if they put a bag on it while painting the room. What do you think?
This was how the light appeared when I took photos last year.
There were no kitchen photos on the MLS listing so I was glad I had shot a few.
I thought this kitchen was just amazing. It was small and had no upper cabinets.
But I love the finishes. Love that little nook above the stove.
Marble counters always make me happy.
This is the ceiling in the kitchen.
Beyond the kitchen was a little room just before the backdoor.
There this fabulous industrial sink provides extra prep space.
This little room does have cabinets.
Another little nook.
And stainless steel shelving for glasses.
A nice simple office. Oh...I wish I could live this simplified.
This house is amazing in that it has arched top doors inside.
Upstairs is the master bedroom.
Wonderful ceiling angles in the top rooms of this home.
This is the master bathroom upstairs.
That sink is original to the home.
It looks pink in this photo but it's actually lavender.
The home owner told me she was soooo excited when she found electric sconces in
a matching shade.
All else in this bathroom is new.
I hope the new owners keep this sink.
It's just too fabulous!
I don't have a MLS page on this home...I'm sorry to say...cause it sold too quick!
Someone got a very special house indeed.
