February 28, 2010Won’t You Be My Neighbor? – 1938 English Country Style Home
So, this is a little different than what I usually post, but I decided to take a break from mid-century modern and mid-century traditional and do a really cute 1930’s English Country style house.
This beautiful 3,360 square foot house is a little more grand that I usually post, but for all its impressive outside, this house is really kind of looks like a cozy little home inside. Built in 1938, this home is located on the other side of the country club from where we have our house, and everything is a little more grand and enormous over there. They are asking $318,000 for this house, and it is totally worth every penny.
Pretty sweet, huh?
Here is the backyard of the house. It is on a corner lot, so it isn’t a very private backyard, but I like it just the same. If you look closely you can see the awesome light they have in the back, a long pole with several lights branching off of it. There are other lights like that in our neighborhood and they are vintage. Not sure how old, but I am sure I love them!
Slate tile and excellent built-ins!
Kitchen with parquet flooring and shuttered cabinets. I wasn’t sure until recently if these were vintage, but after seeing them in several other time capsule houses in the area, I believe they are. I don’t know if they are 1930’s, though. Maybe a later addition. Anyone with more info, feel free to share!
Another view of the kitchen.
So cute! Love the built-ins in this room.
Love the built-ins and that chair.
That little sink next to the bed is such a cute idea. And I love the little reading lamp over the bed.
More built-ins, although they aren’t as cute as some of the others.
And finally, the excellent, excellent basement. Check out that killer floor!!
