Our Opinion: With a pair of steeply-pitched gables, that arched front door and matching picture window, this 1923 residence is the epitome of what makes a Tudor-style home so charming. The vertically-placed cladding in said gables complements the brick exterior, and the red Bartile roof gives it just the right amount of pop. Owners (and friends of ours), Toby and Lindsay, have reluctantly answered the call to head west, which means this bungalow will soon be up for grabs. And there’s a bit of history here–built by the Snelgrove family (of local ice cream fame), the attention to detail is evident. The home’s wood-cased windows and trim, original hardwood doors and hardware, built-in bookshelves, and coved ceilings all demonstrate the quality of craftsmanship that went into this property. Add to that, it has been recently remodeled to reflect today’s standards while still maintaining the era in which it was built. There’s a pair of fireplaces (that living room focal point!), and the galley-style kitchen connects perfectly to the backyard where there’s plenty of room for summer shenanigans. Also out back is a built-in grille, a garden chock-full of grapes and raspberries, and a two-car garage and gated driveway. In all, we’d say this home is a stone-cold winner. Better scoop it up before it’s gone (think: ice cream on a hot day).
