From the Zillow listing:

 

“The Castle”…Designed by Lorenzo Hamilton and built by Esidor Derecktor for his daughter. This magnificent tudor home in Bradley Park features over 5400 square feet of living space and is one of Meriden’s finest and distinctive homes. Featuring a totally remodeled interior with 5 bedrooms and 3.5 baths, and an exquisite exterior, this home would be impossible to recreate at this price. Tudor homes such as this one are characterized by their steeply pitched gable roofs, playfully elaborate masonry chimneys, embellished doorways, groupings of windows, decorative half-timbering, and exposed wood framework with the spaces between the timbers filled with masonry or stucco. And this one is no different! An au pair suite with kitchen and full bath provide space should you need it. This is one not to miss!
