Home now.  I tried to get you this picture as clear as I could.

 

In a way now, I wouldn't want to see the inside of this house because I have the memories of when my grandparents lived there.  The house looks across a big golf course now belonging to Grove Park Inn where opposing captured generals were kept during WW I, and WW II

 

I can tell you the big set of windows was a formal dining room with a bedroom above.   Behind the dining room there was a two bench built in breakfast nook.

The lower windows on the right was the living room with a fireplace and study behind. 

Above, my grandmother had a very large bedroom with a walk in closet that went out under the eves.  The dormer is to that bedroom. 

 

I can remember going out in the back and cutting roses with black handled scissors.

 

They moved further out when I was quite young.

Oh, my, @ECBG ,  my ears pricked up when you mentioned in the Tudor house thread, your watercolor of your grandparents' house.  What a treat that you photographed it for us, thank you!!

 

A treasure like that, that sparks your memories of that time and that place, priceless.  The interesting setting, overlooking the grounds of an historic inn.  A darling house, so "custom", and so unlike what is being churned out today.  Those windows, that roof line, that dimensional dormer that adds so much character....  Just love it all!

 

I can just imagine, aided by your description, how charming it was inside as well!

I was curious after posting about my grandparent's former house yesterday and tried to see if I could determine the last selling price, which was around 1 1/2 K.

 

I looked up other, larger Tudor homes and got inside pictures.  Many had been SO updated until they were but a shell of what they had been.  Very little had been kept.  The insides mirrored new structures.
