If you want a Tudor
There are Tudor-style homes tucked in around Long Island. Attractive with their strong exterior designs, the older models also have fine touches on the interior. Here are a few:
605 N. Village Ave.
Situated in the Old Canterbury section of Rockville Centre, this 1927 Tudor features arched entranceways, wood floors, moldings and a fireplace. Natural light fills the house through large windows, says one of the listing agents, noting the living room has leaded-glass windows while one of three bathrooms has a stained-glass window. The layout includes an entrance foyer flanked by the living and dining rooms. The dining area opens to the kitchen. Off the kitchen is a breakfast room, which overlooks the in-ground pool. There are four bedrooms, including the master suite. In addition to the gas-heated gunite pool, the landscape of the 60-by-123-foot property includes a cabana with a shower, sink and storage space.
112 Old Field Rd.
Nestled on a serene 4.56-acre gated property with mature trees and a water view, this 1920 Tudor retains its original charm while offering today's amenities, says one of the listing agents. Features include five original fireplaces, wood floors and detailed woodwork as well as an updated kitchen with granite countertops and stainless-steel appliances, radiant heat floors and 4½ renovated bathrooms. With about 4,230 square feet of living space, the three-story house has six bedrooms: two on the third level and four, including the master suite, on the second, where there is a laundry room. Other amenities include three-zone central air-conditioning, five-zone heating and a full basement.
25 Nirvana Ave.
Although this 1927 Tudor is renovated, it retains many original architectural details. For instance, the living and dining rooms feature diamond-design leaded-glass windows while the staircase landing sports a long stained-glass window. Other features include wood floors, arched entranceways, moldings and a fireplace. There's a veranda off the den and a deck off the eat-in kitchen. The new kitchen is designed with granite countertops and stainless-steel appliances. There are 2½ renovated bathrooms and four bedrooms, including one on the third floor. Amenities include a finished basement and a detached two-car garage. The landscaping of the 69-by-121-foot parcel was recently redone.
