House Tour: A Tudor Cottage Becomes a Midcentury Dream

By

Design and literature aficionados, this charming abode is for you.

With golden hour vibes for days and multiple built-in bookshelves, this cottage is a creative bookworm's fantasy. Built in 1928, the house maintains much of the original hardware and fixtures, exuding an old-school charm. Any design lover will automatically be drawn to the half-timbering, arched doorways, hardwood floors and elegant wood moldings. With new custom Marvin windows and doors, painstakingly restored woodwork, and rewired light fixtures, the home carries modern touches, but still maintains its original charm.


Sit and read in any of the gilded nooks or snuggle up to the fireplace in the sunken living room. Take advantage of the study to write a novel or sit with a few of your favorite editions. Come sundown basque in the warm glow on the deck with views; and then enjoy dinner with your artsy crew in the formal dining room.
