    This looks very familiar. Wasn’t it on here a year or so ago?

      I don’t believe so.

      Funny, because I was scrolling through the new listings here, saw this one’s address, and thought, “Huh, how did I manage to miss this one?!?” I live in Utica, and have posted some local houses for sale on OHD, incl. ones in this particular neighborhood that this house is in – which is nice. But not this house, as far as I know. It’s not ringing a bell as to someone else posting it in the past, either, at least not in my (semi-sievelike these days!) brain.

  2. What a cheery little kitchen, with a fabulous sink!
    Wall and window treatments need some addressing, but nothing else needs to be touched. Lighting is fantastic.
    Landscaping and exterior maintenance would go a long way.

    I’m becoming more and more fond of New York and will admit to a tiny crush on this house. Wallpaper in the bath is tipping me over the edge.

    This house is awesome. I love the garage doors.

      Incredible house! The garage wing, with its picturesque siding, is so perfect for this house, but the garage door hardware really kicks everything up a notch! The only thing that could make the garage doors better would be a bit of leaded glass… I can’t help but wonder if there wasn’t some in place originally.

    The bi-parting carriage doors with wrought iron strap hinges is the perfect way to pull off a front load garage on a Tudor Revival. They can be automated and are much quieter than a traditional overhead door.

    Exceptional house in design and detail. Not overly formal like some larger Tudors – it’s just right. I’m glad they’ve kept the slate roof. They’re getting more difficult to keep because of ongoing maintenance costs, but it really enhances the look of houses like this.

    I was rather awe-struck when the first interior picture came up. Can you experienced folks tell me about the ornate light fixtures–do they really, “fit”?
    Except to having the whole exterior brick cleaned (blasted) and adding some lovely landscaping, this is a lovely home. I’m not so familiar with slate roofing–how long does it last, and does this one look quite old? Teach me 🙂
    If I had the cash, I wouldn’t mind purchasing this home.

      Some powerwashing should clean up the brick. Blasting should be avoided, even with nutshells and other softer shot.
      Slate is expensive but looks great and lasts for a very long time, easily 50+ years. The downside is that it must be maintained regularly. Back in the day the slate men would come around every year and replace cracked slates. Now it’s more difficult to find guys to do the routine maintenance inexpensively. A cracked slate means a leak that can cause damage if not repaired quickly.
      We had the last slate roof on a street of similar double houses (semi-detached). It was costing about $1000 for the maintenance that was usually just a few slates, on a shallow-pitched roof that wasn’t that noticeable. I hated to do it, but replacing it with fiberglass shingles for $12,000 that will last 25 years was inevitable.

    And then there’s the tuck pointing I forgot to think about.
    WOW! I never knew that slate was so costly to maintain! East to understand your need to switch to more practical roofing, albeit heart-wrenching.
    Thanks for responding Jim! I appreciate the education.

    Tudors are not really my style, but I love this one. It’s like a fairy tale – just what I think a Tudor should look like!
