Fairy Tale House
This beautiful home is said to be of the Tudor style, which was prominent between 1890 and 1940. According to Realtor.com, the Tudor style takes its name from England in the 1500's, but is more reminiscent of medieval times. In America, large homes of the Tudor style were often built by the wealthy, to evoke images of old money and rich heritage. The website says that around 1920, a more modest version of the style began to pop up, as a variation of the popular Craftsman Bungalow. This 1930 beauty seems to fit right in.
So, all that technical description is very informative, but every time I see this house, it just makes me think of a fairy tale. (And all that technical stuff kind of explains why!) The house sold not too long ago. I wonder who lives there? Maybe someone with a home-based business, like a little shoemaker, or a pretty girl and seven tiny miners...
