This house is the epitome of American Tudor, with it's blend of brick and half-timber, prominent chimney, striking gable, diamond-paned windows, and modest entry. An elegant and welcoming house.

Crocus Hill Tudor

Working within the original footprint, we remodeled the entire house and provided full interior design services to reawaken the home’s historic charm. New details include art glass windows, custom-designed cabinetry and five new bathrooms, including one in what was once a sleeping porch. Furnishings and finishes in the formal areas fit the Tudor aesthetic, while in the bedrooms and other more private spaces, a more casual, modern design prevails.

For the outdoor living space, privacy was a primary concern. A pergola creates a central focal point in the small area and comfortably screens the sun’s rays. The suspended art glass over the fence adds a finishing detail to the space, while strategically obscuring views of the neighboring residence. A unique built-in stand accommodates a grill large enough for gatherings with friends and family.

Less a foyer than an entrance hall, this neutral space's built-in bench, rug, crystal chandelier, and beautiful furniture has the same luxurious feeling as the other public spaces.
While much of the rest of the living room is neutral, the light blue walls, royal blue velvety couch, and red Persian rug add pops of color to the luxurious interior.
The living room also features a wood-burning fireplace and is flooded with light from very generous windows all around the room.
With it's coffered ceiling, elaborate built-in buffet with art glass, crystal sconces, and mirror all set into an arched niche, and elegant furniture, this dining room would enhance any meal.
While the family room is a bit simpler than the formal living room, it's no less comfortable with its overstuffed furniture, fireplace, and warm color palate. The fabric-textured wallpaper, Persian carpet, and beautiful objet d'art also give it a quiet elegance.
The sunroom has more of that delightful colored art glass above the generous windows and comfortable furniture. A wonderful place to soak up the sun on a winter's afternoon.
This bathroom is neutral, restful, and very period, but also very functional, with a roll-top bathtub, a generous shower, and two pedestal sinks with medicine cabinets.
This bedroom is welcoming with it palate of reds, blues, and greens. It has fun and comfortable furniture and a round rug that you want to sink your toes into.
The glassed in back porch looks out over the faux wicker dining table in the backyard.
The backyard has been turned into a comfortable outdoor living area for cooking, dining, and relaxing, accented with a slate patio floor and a sculptural pergola with a stained glass shade.
In the backyard comfortable faux wicker cushioned furniture makes for a comfortable seating area.
The outdoor cooking area has an impressive built-in gas grill.
