We Must Be Crazy: A tour of Tudor we DID NOT buy

January 25, 2012

::GUSH:: I ran across these photos today. WHY do old homes tug on my heart-strings! This home is an old flame of mine…I fell in love with it the moment we walked inside. We didn’t end up purchasing it though…we bought the home we live in now instead. Which in the long run was a good idea because Geoff has a five-minute commute and we get to enjoy all the many things Ann Arbor has to offer. Now I just drool over the photos, jealous of all the things this home has!

Please click on the photo’s to make them bigger so you can be as jealous as I am of the current owners whomever they are.


Sigh....look at the stone walkway and SLATE ROOF, and yes, those are copper gutters!!

    Very nice! Love the windows, especially the spider web one. And the light fixtures! I’m wondering, what does the kitchen look like?

      SO the spider-web is actually two french doors that open to the screened-in porch. They are made of leaded glass – so unique! I thought I still had the kitchen photo’s but they must have been lost.
      The kitchen was vintage 50’s. Linoleum floor, small built-in cabinets, with an eat in area that had a bay window and a bulters pantry.The kitchen also had a service feature -tubes built into the wall that connected to all of the upstairs rooms, like an old fashion intercom. The house also had service stairs and a service quarter in the attic. SO the tubes must have been for the maid when she was in kitchen. Anyone from the house could call down to her from the tube in their room. An era gone by…

      All of the bathrooms were vintage ceramic tile, including the separate shower in the master bath ( in soft pink).

      There were two cedar closets you can’t see either, and the 2nd fireplace is in the basement. The basement floor is terrazo.
