The home at 418 W Friar Tuck Lane in Houston is aptly designed for the street it sits on. This Tudor home looks as if Robin Hood and his sidekick Friar Tuck should be emerging from the front door at any moment. Located in the Sherwood Forest subdivision—I couldn't make this up if I tried— just west of Memorial Park, the house features the typical Tudor-style steeply pitched roof with overlapping gables. Charming chimney pots, which help to create a better draft for combustion, top the numerous chimneys as is common in this architectural style.
A wooden front door with leaded glass opens to a world that promises warmth and comfort thanks to the home's use of wood and stone. You would not be surprised if Maid Marian was perched in a chair next to the foyer's fireplace with its 1760 chimney piece. Antique pine beams, 150-year-old chestnut floors and a sturdy staircase with hand-honed balusters add to the overall time-traveling effect. And that's just the first room in the home.
