For just over a million dollars, you can get a good one-bedroom apartment in a good neighborhood in Manhattan—or, you can drive 40 minutes west and scoop up a circa-1930 English Tudor that’s way more than meets the eye.
Spreading seven bedrooms and five baths over 5,095 square feet, this beautifully-maintained home is classy on the outside with a vast brick facade and mini turret, and stylish on the inside with a mix of the old and new. Interior highlights include a marble staircase, large fireplace in the living room, leaded glass windows, and an all-white kitchen updated with stainless steel appliances.
But the closer you look—how about the fun artwork and daring sequence of pendant lamps in the dining room?—and the deeper you go, you’ll find discover this stately Tudor’s fun side, certainly by the time the incredible lower-level home diner and cinema show up. Take a tour, below.
