Home of the Week: English Tudor pours on the charm in Alhambra


Set in the Orange Blossom Manor Tract, an Alhambra enclave that was once the site of a booming commercial orange grove, this charming residence is a well-kept example of the English Tudor Revival style.

A winner of multiple preservation awards, the restored home showcases such classic elements as ornamental half-timbering, front-facing gables and mullioned casement windows. Antique fixtures and a vintage kitchen stove are among character details found inside.
