Tudor Place – The Architecture

Tudor Place, taken by Kathy Alexander, Alexander Interiors, LLC
The Tudor Place mansion, Washington D.C.

The original owner of the Tudor Place property had built two structures on the property:  One, the home; the other, the stables.  

When the Peters engaged William Thornton, he designed a grand home between the two structures with the original buildings serving as wings to the new home. The center front of the Tudor Place mansion recalls a circular temple with massive columns supporting a domed roof introducing you into the neoclassical house. 

Once inside, you experience a continuation of the exterior semi-circular wall inside the reception area. Tall sliding windows within that semi-circle allow you to step from the temple portico inside the home.
