A classic example of a Tudor-style home recently came on the market, offering a stone details and gothic archways for $579,900.
The five-bed, three-and-a-half-bath place sits in Wynnewood, minutes from the Regional Rail stop, and only a 20 minute drive from the heart of the city.
It was built in 1920, at a time when the Tudor style was booming in popularity around the country. It features a number of elements that fit with that aesthetic, beginning with the decorative timber framing on the facade and the stone-clad archway that leads to the front door.
Inside, the living room features wood-lined windows, a large fireplace and—yes, more—gothic arches. The living room and hallway hold many of the same features.
Upstairs, the second floor holds a master bedroom and a family room with built-in bookshelves. There are two more bedrooms on this floor and an additional two on the third floor. The nearly 3,000-square-foot-home was just listed on the market, but it was picked up quickly; the listing was changed to contingent yesterday. However, the pictures are still worth a look.
