Even without a thatched roof, this Spring home makes a tidy example of suburban Tudor Revival, early seventies-style. The dormers, half-timbers, herringbone accents, and diamond-paned windows associated with that style only face the street. The back elevation has a simpler, lighter, more modern design, focused on a tall exposed chimney. Listed earlier this month at $175,000, the 2,652-sq.-ft. home occupies a third-of-an-acre lot just south of the Willowcreek Golf Club — and less than 8 miles west of the new ExxonMobil campus.

The seventies-Tudor theme extends halfway through the house too. Red brick and dark wood trim, paneling, and cabinetry dominate the first-floor finishes. The double-height family room has a vaulted ceiling. Both the fireplace and the windows flanking it rise to that room’s full height to form the other side of that rear wall with views of the back yard. The room’s other three walls are paneled. One contains the stairwell and built-in cabinetry. Another is partially opened to the kitchen, screened by wooden spindles similar to the balusters of the staircase and upstairs railing.
In the kitchen, the sleek electric cooktop hundles beneath a brick arch. There’s a breakfast bar, plus room for a dining table.
Downstairs also has one of 2 master bedrooms in this 4 bedroom, 2 1/2-bath home. This one has a window seat:
Other bedrooms are in the less-Tudorish upstairs:
In the back yard, there’s a patio and a covered porch.
The Northampton neighborhood, meanwhile, has trails and 3 pools. There’s a $325 annual maintenance fee.
