One of the most beautiful Tudor homes in Lakewood just hit the market Friday. If you’ve ever lusted after one of these gorgeous original houses, this is a rare opportunity to own a grand 1927 beauty that has all the classic elements intact. Nancy Johnson of Dave Perry-Miller & Associates has listed 6907 Lakewood Blvd. for $1,699,900. The three-bedroom, two-full-bath-and-one-half-bath home has 3,449 square feet and it’s chock full of charm at every turn.

Tudor homes in America are really a medley of looks. European architects brought the eclectic, asymmetrical style here and wealthy homeowners and American architects added their own touches. You’ll see a dash of Medieval and a sprinkle of early Renaissance blended with our Tudors. The facade of this Lakewood home is a great example. It has a touch of the Gothic look with an elongated diamond pattern trim overlay on the magnificent dining room windows. That’s not something you see very often, nor do you generally see an original fountain in the central walkway. Yes, this one is special.

Dining and living rooms have the characteristic high ceilings with detailed dentil style crown molding. The large formal living room is anchored by a stunning Rookwood tile fireplace.

The kitchen is, thankfully, not vintage, but the updated look is in keeping with the 1920’s style, featuring stained glass cabinetry details, subway tile and an impressive coffered ceiling. The kitchen opens onto a large breakfast room with a built-in breakfast buffet and a stunning multi-color original mosaic tile floor.

Head up the intricate iron staircase to the master bedroom suite with a large walk-in closet and a beautifully updated black and white tiled bathroom. We’re loving that double console sink — it’s modern, but so in keeping with the style, and something else you don’t see often. There are two more large, light-filled bedrooms on the second floor.

It may be hard to get rid of house guests with their own private two-story domain at the end of the gorgeous backyard. There are two bedrooms and a full bath upstairs. A beautiful terracotta-floored living area with French doors opens onto the pergola which overlooks a beautiful outdoor kitchen, fire pit, swimming pool, and spa.

The craftsmanship and detail on this stately Lakewood manor is some of the finest we’ve seen and you can tell the home has been lovingly cared for. This part of Lakewood is a conservation district which means the exterior is not likely to ever be tampered with. Let’s hope whoever buys this beauty has the good sense to keep the fine original interior details intact as well.
