Pick of the Week – Brookside Tudor

living room lightThis home made my pick of the week because it is large, elegant, well-maintained, it has an excellent location in between Ward Parkway and the Brookside shops, and because it feels solid and well-built. I especially love the sunken living room and the unique barrel-vaulted ceiling in the dining room (featured in the second photo). What extraordinary craftsmanship it must have taken to form the ceiling in that way. I am not sure there are many plaster workers who could do that nowadays as they did in 1946, the year the home was built. Another of my favorite features is the circle-shaped ironwork on several the front windows. It is such an intriguing feature, and it is especially stunning during those times of the day when the sun shines through casting stunning silhouettes onto the walls and floor inside. On the sunny afternoon when I visited, the home was filled with natural light, especially in the upstairs bedrooms. The property has a great feel, and it would make a fantastic home.
