*Thanks to Stuart, who clued me in that my house is not a Tudor.
Hello! My name is Jen. I've been reading these boards for a few months now, but this is my first post. I lived in a Victorian house until I was 10, and that sealed my fate as a old house enthusiast. I was completely confused when my parents moved me into a brand new house.
In August, my husband and I purchased a 1935 stone English style house. We looked for a while in order to find something that hadn't been remuddled. It was in relatively good shape, but a bit neglected because no one had lived in it for a couple years and the PO probably hadn't been able to fully maintain it for a while prior to that. The POs really respected the house, but they did change out the interior doors, so we will be replacing those with paneled doors more appropriate to the house.
I don't know much about the house's history, and am in the process of contacting the PO to learn what I can. Our town's Historical Society only has information on houses over 100 years old. Rather short-sighted, in my opinion. Our town only has documents back to the 1980's. The rumor around the neighborhood is that the house was built by a Pittsburgh Plate Glass executive, which would explain the Carrara Glass in the bathrooms, kitchen and on all of the window sills.
Here are some pictures. Thanks for looking! I hope to become an active member of these fantastic forums.
