Red brick outside, black and white inside, this 1930 Queen Anne Tudor has been renovated keeping original elements, and upgrading where necessary. The combination lists at $1,750,000. Let’s see if they kept the pieces you like.
When searching for homes it is easy to concentrate on the numbers: five bedrooms, two and three-quarter bathrooms, and 2,530 square feet of space. The style might be a criterion, too. The memorable elements aren’t as easy to search for.
They preserved the fireplace, tapered plaster and tile that includes an art niche. Between the living and dining rooms, more niches, small arched openings for turning possessions into presentations. Beneath them, built-in glass china and curio cabinets sized more for display than storage. Between all of that, a gentle archway.
The kitchen continues the black and white, or shades of grey, theme with stainless steel that looks more at home than in many kitchens thanks to color matching. White cabinetry and marbled counters and back splashes sustain the style. Even the bathrooms have similar decor, and like the kitchen, have been updated with modern fixtures and doors.
A dutch door can fit in many homes, but isn’t as common as french doors. This house has both. A dutch door to the kitchen. French doors to the half-hexagonal balcony from which there are views to the Sound.
Somewhere in there they’ve included an apartment, which suggests a second kitchen as well, something useful during the holidays.
One advantage of the B&W scheme is that any color you bring will be that much more noticeable. A little color will go a long way, and if it is art, there are homes for it.
