Hot Property: A Modern, Storybook Tudor in Bluffview

Built in 1928, this Bluffview Tudor is, at once, strikingly sleek and timelessly traditional. The exterior beckons you in with storybook-inspired landscaping and a stone-lined path, while the façade stands resolute with an angular metal roof and precisely shaped windows. It reads like a seamless blend of old and new—neither showy nor kitschy, yet undeniably eye-catching.

With clean lines, dark metal accents, and high-quality lighting, the interior of this home would be stunning no matter the furnishings of its new tenants. Even the most generic couches and area rugs would feel instantly elevated, and muted neutral colors would find harmony with the crisp white walls. But this home is made to handle more. And though we often claim homes are “perfect canvases” for decor, never has the sentiment been truer than at 8505 Blue Bonnet. The home could be a refuge for a well-traveled older couple, whose collection of international art and global prints would feel both cozily at home and purposefully showcased. It could also be ideal for a young bachelor with a growing art collection, whose masculine, mahogany decor would marry any art he displays, whether he prefers modern paintings in punchy frames or serene landscapes in traditional gold or wood. And somehow, it’s also just right for an art-loving family, whose gallery walls of prints and pieces could rest snugly next to finger paintings and elementary school masterpieces.



Start exploring and you’ll find tastefully updated rooms at every turn. The kitchen boasts gunmetal gray cabinetry, metallic hardware, and copper pendant lights, as well as a steely blue tile backsplash. Several nooks offer space for a compact study, a reading refuge, or a small entertaining area. An angular attic bedroom would be stylish space for a kid’s room or a guest sanctuary. Outside, the professionally landscaped backyard includes raised garden beds, a fire pit, and several beautifully gnarled old trees (one of which has a sturdy branch begging for a rope swing).

To whomever moves into this stunning home: please invite us over to admire whatever form of interior you create. We already know it will be a masterpiece.
