Loves Lane, Wynnewood, Pennsylvania

Here's the story of a 1922 Storybook English Tudor. Located on a curve where Loves Lane meets Arthur's Round Table, this home is part of the English Village Historic District in Wynnewood, Pennsylvania. 

Loves Lane in this case should really be Loves' Lane, because this village was built by brothers Donald and S. Arthur Love in the 1920's. They modeled their 29 houses after Shakespeare's home of Stratford-on-Avon, building them with local fieldstone, barn wood and railroad ties. No two houses are just alike, and the meandering streets and English gardens between them still make you feel like you've stepped back in time. 

That feeling continues once you enter the listing home...

After all, it's a better story when all of the rooms are on the same page.

The listing is here.
