    Best home of the week! A blend of Tudor Revival and French Eclectic. I can’t think of anything more romantic than a Storybook home like this.

    A beautiful home with great finishes. I surprised myself and actually like the big chunky tile counter tops. That stone fireplace with the stone floor is inviting. I love the masterful small children’s rooms.

    Totally agree that this is the best house of the week and at a great price, relative to what she would go for in a larger urban area. The ONLY thing I MIGHT replace are the large plate glass windows in the living and dining rooms. They don’t quite go with the rest of the house. But they may also look better in real life.

      OMG. O M G… I knew this one had the potential to be great, but holy cardboard, who could ever even have hoped the interior would be THAT magnificently fitted and preserved! The whole time I’m thinking Steven’s gonna flip. BTW, I suspect the picture window is right. I’ve seen them like this before, and always in top-shelf examples. This DECIDEDLY qualifies. Some of the best Zooks of the period have them. The Arts& Crafts quality fittings, timbering, and COPIOUS original interior and exterior stonework, are other similarities in his finest works.

      One of the most luxe, and blessedly not overly adorned, or dark, examples ever. Those flags are EPIC. Soooo gorgeous! Mmmm mmmm mmmmmm.

      Oooh la la – the real deal…

    As I scrolled through this post I started mentally decorating the house. That’s part of the fantasy, right? This is a style I really like, so of course I have things that suit said style, and I had one particular painting I own in mind. I tried to find the pretend right place for it (I was kind of thinking in the entry by the stairs) when BAM! There it is, hanging in the bedroom with the dolls in it. So basically, I love this house, and the owners are great people.

    Such an idyllic home – lovely and in good condition. And the street view shows a woodsy ‘’end-of-the-road’ look. Unfortunately, the primary view out the other side is a dilapidated commercial district full of used car lots and empty paved lots. But what a beautiful home!

    Wow Kelly, this is a fantastic house. The post-WWI American French Norman influenced style can be found found in the form and many of the architectural elements. Compare the first and second pics of the posted house to the pic on page 24 of this pdf from a 1917 book on rural building design in Normandy… https://dahp.wa.gov/sites/default/files/Farm_Houses_Manor_Houses_Minor_Chateaux.pdf

    extremely charming and could be perfect,
    if one would get rid of the track lighting and swapped out the a few other seemingly out of place items and went partially hidden LED strips

    of course thats just me

    • ComptonCompton says: 17 comments

      Yes that was my first thought! Track lighting has to go!

        One of my favorite houses of all time! I really love almost everything about it (including the deck among the trees)! I agree with that cantilevered deck-it doesn’t really seem possible to stay up! What an amazing price and all on 1 1/2 acres-I sure wish that it were close enough to get a better look!

    I love the house, but how does that balcony hold up?

    The painted exterior is likely not original. The unscraped, roman brick would be quite beyond spectacular if left unpainted: but thank God it wasn’t plastered. Could it be blasted back? Maybe; but it looks fine; if maybe in need of a more creative exterior color scheme..

    Best inter-war of the year contender IMO.

    • ComptonCompton says: 17 comments

      I would think the exterior paint could be sand blasted off. No doubt it could be pricey to do it!

    • ComptonCompton says: 17 comments

      The brick on this house was originally a clay pot color similar to the color of terra cotta then painted the color it is now. I saw this house today in person. Someone had drilled a whole in one of the bricks to hang a hook and I could see the original color of the brick.

    Did anyone notice the bowed front door? Cool detail.

    Ohhh my! The word that kept going through my head was solid! The child’s bedroom with the adorable car-bed is too cool for a little boy; and the little girl’s room is charm plus!
    Sorry to disagree with the kitchen counter tiling, though. I love the color but not the idea of tile. I’d change it out, but love the rest of the kitchen. Awesome home! Thanks Kelly.

    I’m practically speechless, I love this so much. I even like the redone kitchen. And it is not too far from Richmond, where I own a house I’ll be moving into later this year. Not that it matters…I can’t buy a second house. But if I were going to, this would be it!

    Ooooh, I remember this one—my wannabe second house! I wonder what happened? Has it been on the market all this time, or did it go off and then come back on?
