Learn About Tudor Style Homes in Morris County

    140 Ridgeview Place, Boonton Park

    There’s just something about Tudor homes that makes my buyers fall in love instantly. They’re the perfect combination of vintage charm and informal coziness and we’re lucky enough to have a lot of them in this area! Lake Arrowhead in Denville is home to a bumper crop of little fairy godmother cottages and the Boonton Park Section boasts many larger-scale representatives of the style. One thing is for sure – whether they’re big or small, you’re going to be enchanted!

     

    Half-timbering

    In case you’re wondering what makes a home a Tudor, it’s all about the materials. The most popular feature is half-timbering. Stucco divided by beams gives these homes the look of an old English cottage. You’ll often see decorative brickwork – whether it’s in an elegant herringbone pattern or made up of irregular “clinker” bricks for a rustic touch. Fieldstone is popular in the foundations or for chimneys.

     

    140 Ridgeview’s entryway

    An inviting entry with an arched board and batten door and strap hinges is also a common highlight of Tudor homes. And the warmth of these homes isn’t just in your head. Fireplaces give friends and family a hearth to gather around all Winter long.

    One of the most stunning examples of Tudor architecture I’ve seen is my listing at 140 Ridgeview Place in Boonton’s gracious Park Section. This home is a perfect example of how you can enjoy the fairy tale feel of a Tudor without compromising on modern amenities and luxuries.

    Discard the cares of the world as you walk down a hedge lined brick pathway and enter through the charming strap-hinged wood door of this enchanting Tudor home. Decoratively laid slate flooring and an archway welcome you into the inviting Foyer, which offers chestnut trimmed entryways to the Living Room and Dining Room and an elegant staircase with fancifully carved balusters and a chamfered rail. Throughout the home, you’ll find glazed Venetian plaster walls, original chestnut trimmed doorways and window casings, deep baseboard moldings and picture rail trim. The Living Room offers two walls of divided light casement windows, gleaming hardwood floor and a handcrafted fireplace surround featuring ornamental tilework and a stunning wood mantelpiece.
