House of stone: Proof that quality doesn’t have to bust your budget, this stone Tudor was built in 1923.
Offering three bedrooms and 2,591 square feet of living space, the home sits in the sought-after Hampden Heights neighborhood.
It’s been meticulously updated and maintained over the past century. The unique, one-and-a-half-story home boasts traditional features like a gabled roof, wooden beams, and stone walls. However, it also has modern amenities like a European kitchen with an island as well as a finished basement with a wine cellar.
Outdoors on the large lot you’ll find an original stone-walled courtyard and mature landscaping that features trees that change color in the fall.
4005 Aberdeen Rd, Nashville, TN
A little bit country: Built in 1929, this three-story charmer has classic Tudor features inside and out. On the exterior, you’ll see the steeply pitched roof and solid brick walls accented by arched doorways and pass-throughs, to soften those sharp angles.
Located in Cherokee Park and within easy walking distance of shops and restaurants, the neighborhood is as quaint as the house itself.
With three bedrooms and two bathrooms, this 2,233-square-foot home has been updated with an intoxicating blend of old world charm and modern convenience.
9 Collett St, North Haven, CT
Tudor meets Colonial: A combination of two classic styles makes this three-bedroom home even more intriguing.
The fascinating exterior mixes brick, stone, stucco, and even shiplap! A clever sunporch addition on the side extends out to form a carport beneath. Behind it is a large, grassy backyard and an informal basketball court.
This home is also a three-story, as is so often the case with traditional Tudors. There are 1,998 square feet of living space under that gabled roof, which include a charming attic room that could work for storage, a playroom, or an office.
It still has many of the architectural details from when it was originally built in 1937, including natural woodwork on the walls and floors, and even cut-glass doorknobs.
1001 Brighton Rd, Jackson, MI 49203
Cooking up something special: This home’s stately brick exterior among the towering oaks is impressive. But it’s the newly remodeled kitchen with an adjacent dining room and breakfast nook that steals the show for us.
There are plenty of other lovely spaces in the three-bedroom Tudor from 1927, though. In addition to an inviting sunroom, there’s a large living room with a fireplace, plus a bonus room/den.
An extra room in the walk-up attic, plus the quaintly finished basement that could easily serve as a gym or a family room, are icing on this pretty Tudor cake.
2721 S Rhyolite Rd, Spokane, WA
Storybook Tudor cottage: Although it looks quaint, this isn’t your grandmother’s Tudor cottage. Yes, it still has the pointy gabled roof and multipaned windows of a traditional Tudor. But the master suite, tucked up under the eaves, has a huge walk-in closet that could double as a nursery. There’s also a sleek modern bathroom so you don’t need to deal with stairs in the middle of the night.
Built in 1931, the four-bedroom home features gleaming hardwood floors, natural woodwork, and arched doorways.
From its many windows, you can enjoy watching the leaves turn in the fall, the snow fly in the winter, and the flowers bloom in the spring.
