On the Market: A Splendid 10-Room Tudor in Brookline
Once upon a time, in a land far far away there lived...this magnificent Tudor home.
173 Woodland Road, Brookline
Size: 6,047 square feet
With its turrets and towers, this home might look more English castle than Brookline Tudor. And while its address suggests a lawn populated with fairies and gnomes, the five-bedroom single-family home is within walking distance to such mystical sites as a Wegmans grocery store and a Showcase SuperLux movie theater.
The whimsical exterior gives way to a classy and contemporary interior: Dark hardwood, glass-framed stairs, recessed lighting, and stainless appliances furnish the 10 rooms. Though the home boasts an abundance of eye-catching rooms—a massive bathroom with a stately soaking tub, a fireplaced master bedroom with gorgeous vaulted ceilings, a kitchen with enough room to prep and consume a full Thanksgiving meal—one of the dwelling’s most striking rooms is the living room.
The ornately carved, bright white fireplace surround is the focal point of a wood-panelled accent wall. But when the light hits just right, catch spots of color being projected around the beige and white room. Thanks to the Brookline Preservation Commission, the 1930 home’s original walls have been left untouched, and are embellished with several colorful coats of arms—maybe this is a home fit for royalty.
Best of all at this time of year, the living room opens out onto a screened-in porch, which flows into an open deck. Pull up a chair to look down at your lawn and its in-ground swimming pool, and half acre of regal land.
