1931 English Tudor
April Mitchell
My home is an English Tudor home. I have always loved them and there are very few in East Saint Paul. This house had good “bones” but had been neglected both inside and out. When I closed, I immediately repaired the screen porch—floor, ceiling, windows, etc. I also took out the modern fiberglass door and put in a period correct French door. I refinished the wood floors, undid the “updated kitchen” and replaced the black granite tile countertops with white tile. I took out the cheap modern stainless steel sink and replaced it with a period accurate enamel kitchen farm sink. The outside was painted, completely regraded. All new landscaping includes a new brick patio and perennial gardens.
