There’s something about the holidays that draws us to Tudor-style homes, perhaps due to their Gingerbread House-like qualities. In fact, Philly and the Main Line is teeming with Tudors, from the historic East Falls Tudors District to the Main Line’s stately mansions.
It should be noted that most Tudors in Philly and the U.S. are actually Tudor Revival. This architectural style became popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, modeled after England’s original Tudor. These five homes for sale in Philly and on the Main Line feature all of the the pitched roofs, arched front doors, and overall charm one expects with typical Tudors.
Over in Wayne, this 4-bedroom, 3.5-bath Tudor has a number of nice updates, including refurbished exposed beams from Germantown Library, new bathrooms, and a picturesque backyard. Asking price: $985,000.
After listing in October for $850K, this West Mt. Airy Tudor is now down to $795K. It’s a charmer, with 5 bedrooms, 4 baths, and a tiny treehouse out back. And for what its worth, it’s the only home on this list located within Philly city limits.
This 4-bedroom, 3.5-bath Tudor in Wyncote is old-world on the outside and modern on the inside. There’s a big living room with plenty of glass-paned windows, a cute back patio, and a big gourmet kitchen. Asking price: $389,900.
In Bala Cynwyd, this 4-bedroom, 2.5-bath home wants $869K. It’s certainly stately and features a classic slate roof. The updated kitchen is perhaps the most modern room in the house; elsewhere, there are exposed beams, arched doorways, and large, deep-silled windows.
One of the largest Tudors on this list is also the least expensive. In Drexel Hill, this 5-bedroom, 3.5-bath home is on the market for the first time in five decades. It may need some upgrades, but the $249,900 price tag may make that all the more feasible.
