    • Probably they think it’s a Tudor because of the half-timbering in the gables. Real Estate agents rarely know very much about architectural classification and styles. They usually pick one feature they kind of recognize, and then classify the whole house based on that one feature (i.e. Tudors have that wood/stucco thing, this house has that wood/stucco thing, it must be a Tudor).
      I’d say this house, with its wide overhangs/eaves, exposed wooden brackets in the gables, medium-to-low roof pitch, and dark wood accents/built-ins on the interior, would be more appropriately classified as Craftsman or Prairie.

  1. Love all of the antique furniture. I had a white and gold bed, dresser and desk bedroom set like the one in the 9th picture from the bottom. The kitchen is charming. I love all the windows. Not fond of the ceiling in the kitchen though, It looks like an office. Other than that this place is very nice,

  2. Love the downstairs and the attic. Would have liked to see the bathrooms. I think there is a lot of great space here, including the back yard. That kitchen ceiling would need to go, as would the wallpaper around the house.

  3. This would be one the newer period homes in Attica, Indiana. The historic town has some great mid-19th century homes in the Greek Revival, Italianate, and Gothic Revival styles. I know of one outstanding Queen Anne in the town and a very nice example of the Second Empire style. I took some photos in Attica (and next door Williamsport) a few years ago:https://www.flickr.com/photos/11236515@N05/albums/72157648056465639 Since I seldom look for homes from the post-Victorian era I missed this one but it is a nice example of the Tudor Revival houses dating from the second decade of the 20th century. The staircase balustrade has a vague Arts & Crafts feel to it while the diamond paned windows (casements were favored) tie in with the Tudor Revival style. I found period homes both in Attica and Williamsport to be reasonably priced compared to other locales. The towns are in a picturesque region of Indiana north of Terre Haute and not far away from Lafayette.

  4. The formal rooms are very nicely detailed, and about as pristine as 100 year old spaces can be. Nice floors all over the house, even in the attic, which looks like the best play space ever! Because it’s Attic-a, right?

  5. Love the dining room, especially that built-in china. I would remove the ceiling in the kitchen as well as all the wallpaper.
    JimH you are too funny! 😂

  6. Hints of art nouveau on the stair railing spindles. Gorgeous quartersawn oak floor! This was definitely not an inexpensive house when it was built.

  7. diamond paned windows, a window seat by a fireplace = what’s not to like here.

  8. My Queen Anne, (circa 1897) is down the street from this home. It’s a wonderful street with historic homes. I’ve never been inside this home, but I love the original details. Thank goodness the owners did not paint the brick or woodwork in this home. Lafayette is about 25 minutes away, about the same for Danville, Illinois. I love the attic space for a master bedroom or office. The dining room is gorgeous. The metal roof is recent and very well done. The house faces a gas station, which is well-kept. The house is on a short hill, so there is room to plant fast-growing trees. Price of the home is probably because the house is located in a small town. It’s a beauty.
