We’ve seen a lot of Tudor Revivals hit the market in the last few weeks (see the sidebar for some more examples). One that’s now for sale, built in 1928, is unique in what the sellers have done to the interior.

The 3,650-square-foot home on Wildemere Street is listed with Nika Jusufi of Max Broock Realtors for $549,950.

It’s got the classic Tudor features on the exterior: half-timbering, stone accents, two floors of bay windows, leaded-glass windows. There’s also a nice little covered porch and detached two-car garage in the modest backyard.

But step inside the four-bedroom home and you’ll see a total transformation. Aside from the wrought-iron staircase, oak floors, and some crown molding, almost everything has been given a modern touch. Even elements like the built-in shelving and fireplace mantel have been replaced.

Not everyone will like the changes—and we don’t know what the state of the house was prior to renovation—but they’ve undeniably been done with taste and high-end finishes.

The kitchen, for example, now has new cabinets, appliances, countertops, a herringbone backsplash, and a wood-paneled island. The four-bedroom home also comes with three full baths, two half-baths, and a finished third floor.

Check out the photos below to see the renovation for yourself.
