    I would move there for this house! Very little would I change … beautiful

    I’m usually not really into Tudors, mainly because it seems that Tudors of the 1920’s and 1930’s, started feeling “thin” or anemic. And by that I mean the woodwork had gotten smaller and the walls thinner — starting with the 20’s and 30’s — houses just usually don’t seem as substantial. BUT NOT THIS ONE! Maybe with a build date of 1900 there was still a visual insistence on heft and intricacies. Also noted is that the stairs are executed solely in wood as opposed to plaster and iron — love it. Anemic, thin-feeling houses are like listening to music you still love, just from a sound system that has lost its bass. I wouldn’t change a thing really. Maybe the kitchen, but those are usually up for debate. What a beauty!

      I live in a 1910 Tudor that is similar to this one. I also do not typically care for the later tudors as much as the earlier ones. The earlier ones have more woodwork and higher ceilings usually. I am glad to see that most of the woodwork in this house remains unpainted. This new fad of painting tudor mansions white and gray is awful to me.

    Really like the house, only thing i would change is the kitchen, needs to be reconfigured, not very user friendly.

      I would love to have seen the original kitchen. Just from the butler’s pantry, I would imagine it to have been quite large, but with little storage since the butler’s pantry appears to have quite a bit.

    • Jodi says: 7 comments

      I agree.. and why didn’t they continue the style of the Butler’s Pantry into the kitchen? The Kitchen, as is, seems completely out of place in this house.

      • Allison says: 31 comments

        By the looks of the colors used in the kitchen, it was done in the late 90’s, early 2000’s. That style and color was considered close to the tudor look. I agree, the butler’s pantry cabinetry is much better, but some like the newer rich colors with stainless appliances.

    I love the window design and abundance in the public rooms which are intimately scaled.

  5. Not a Tudor lover either, until this one showed up! Great house and all looks great except the kitchen, for me anyway. Would have the kitchen and butlers pantry have the same style with a few modern conveniences tucked here and there, but definetly not a need to right now thing. Nice large garage is always a plus.

      My thoughts exactly – factor in the plants and books and I’m there! What I’d give to have seen the original kitchen – bet it was a jaw-dropper. (Love the radiators and that second pedestal sink as well)…

    I just LOVE those windows! Gives it even more character! And just where would the clawfoot tub be hiding? Needs a clawfoot tub! Not a deal breaker since there is plenty of room! I agree the kitchen needs to be more user friendly too. The cabinets look ok, but was thinking that maybe if the door fronts were glass that it would help…? I would have to ditch the grandfather clock… or just donate it to a home that would love it. Just never cared for them. All in all, a fine looking home!

    The front entry/stair hall bears a striking resemblance to the same area in the “Dark Shadows” series. Not the “Old House”, but the one the family lived in during the 1960’s.

    This house is beyond gorgeous!! I’ll take it!

    OK, this is the one for me. Y’all back off . . . it’s mine, MINE, I tell you!

    The dining room with those long windows is my favorite room in this house!

    I like the kitchen – A LOT. The dark cabinets compliment the dark woodwork throughout the rest of the downstairs. Although it’s not for the purest, I think the high end design might be expected at this price point. You know you have owners who are particular about their home when all the laundry room products are lined up like they’re decorative factors. Simply an awesome home both built and decorative.

    Lovely home! Corsicana has some great old houses!

    I don’t know where Easton, PA, is, but I want to move there so I can live in this house!! I love all of it, except the kitchen and two baths (one looks 1920s?, which I’d keep). Lose the carpeting, but make no other changes because it’s PERFECT as it is. Wow, every room is magnificent. And I love the mostly unpainted woodwork. Stunning, magnificent house!

    Beautiful old lady and the neighbourhood is to die for 500%! Did you look at the area? Tons of nice old houses. These homeowners loved this house. I think they did a marvelous job keeping the house in period. Yes, there will always be things to change but really, it’s to a minimum. The price isn’t bad. The winters are cold in PA. Great football team – Go Steeler Nation! I’ve got my terrible towel in the wind at the moment. I hope the next homeowners will finish the love process by keeping this home in its correct time period.

    -For those who don’t care for the kitchen layout, there appears to my eye to be a relatively easy fix, which would cost little money using the existing cabinetry and appliances.
    -One could move the sink, its base cabinet and counter to under the short window, next to the dishwasher, where a drawer cabinet is now. Move the drawer cabinet and the cabinets which are over the existing sink location, swapping them with the refrigerator area’s cabinets and appliances. My guess would be that small window was built at that height because the sink was originally in that location. It looks to me like the spacing would probably work out quite well.
    -Such swaps would create what kitchen designers call a work triangle between the stove, the sink and the refrigerator. The island, which is not plumbed so the floor is probably tiled under the whole thing, would likely need some adjusting to its location too.

      I found myself wondering if the sink had originally gone there as well! Given the marble there, perhaps someone who did a lot of baking changed it at one point, so that they could look dreamily out the window as they worked their dough? The rearrangement you suggest would make for a far more comfortable working kitchen, to be sure.

    Love this for all the reasons already posted—I would love having enough room to actually use the attic for storage instead of living space.

    Like many others here, Tudors don’t usually get my heart too aflutter, but this one is an exception. Perhaps it is only the later Tudors that don’t do it for me. I love the windows, the flow between rooms, the woodwork — everything! (I’m also quite envious of the current owner’s green thumb. How nice in the heart of a PA winter to be surrounded by such lush and healthy plants!)

  18. CeylaClaire says: 278 comments

    Except for the kitchen, this is a lovely home! Would just adapt kitchen to look more like the butler’s pantry to brighten up the whole area. Like Joe’s response about moving the sink.

    I am so in love with this home: I tend to ❤️ Tudors, the woodwork, the windows, the side porch, that fab staircase, The butlers pantry and did I mention the windows??? Too bad I live on the opposite side of Pennsylvania!

  20. Azdi says: 26 comments

    I was wondering what that door led to under the stairs…basement perhaps? I also thought that area was a “phone alcove” type of thing too.

    Mother passed on her love of old houses to me, she especially loved Tudors while I’m fond of Victorians
