Quick Take: Holy curved shingles, Batman!

Whenever I see French or English Tudor homes, I always wonder: how do they make the shingles curve? Turns out most Tudor homes in California use asphalt as it bends easily. This particular home is located on West side of Riverside Drive — this is important as it DOES NOT back to the freeway. And in Floral Park real estate, that extra 50 feet makes all the difference. The decor — too baroque, in my opinion. But let’s look at the bones. Beautiful architectural details throughout, well-maintained wood floors — the list goes on. But my favorite elements are the barrel-vaulted living room (you haven’t lived until you’ve had cocktails and conversation in a room like this) and the breakfast room — with it’s flush-frame cabinetry. Sure, the kitchen looks like they cheaped-out a bit. But hey, minor details.
