Stratford, Connecticut has a wonderful variety of home styles, and if you look hard enough, you’ll find some really unique prewar homes around town. Before World War II, during the roaring 1920’s, ornate and complex building styles were embraced as materials, money and labor was abundant. During the war however, everything was scaled back as many resources were dedicated to the war effort. Today, we can appreciate prewar homes for the special time in which they were constructed. They just don’t build them like this anymore.
This English Tudor cottage style home is located at 919 Wilcoxson avenue in Paradise Green. The round arched front door is still original and is set back in 3-4 layers of brick arches. The craftsmanship and detailed masonry work that was done on this home could only be created during prewar times. Priorities forever changed in 1939, and period homebuilding in particular provides this signature in history we can forever look back on.
This home was built in 1928, and is located in Stratford’s Paradise Green on Wilcoxson Ave, just a few hundred yards from Donut Crazy on Main Street. The home is featured on page seventy of Stratford Historical Society’s Images of America: Stratford.
