Fans of Tudor-style architecture who don't want a Trump-affiliated property are in luck this week, with an immaculately preserved Tudor home in Queens undergoing a price chop to the tune of $152,000, bringing the asking price down to $2.148 million.

Located in the other Murray Hill (not to be confused with the bar-hopping enclave on the East side of Manhattan), a look inside the home is like stepping into one of the Period Rooms at the Met, with historical details including stained glass windows, two fireplaces, and per the listing, wood repurposed from the 1983 World's Fair English Pavilion:

While we love all the stained glass, hardwood floors, and trimming in the dining room, you may want to consider re-tiling the kitchen and updating the appliances:

There are five bedrooms and three bathrooms, some of which include stained glass of their own, though you'd be forgiven if you wanted to sacrifice historical accuracy for comfort and swap in larger, more modern beds:

Elsewhere, there's a basement area that we could easily see turning into a home bar, entertainment area, or game room, as well as a spacious, tree-lined backyard:

You'll have to be comfortable commuting into the city via the Long Island Railroad as public transportation options are limited, but that's all part of the historical throwback, right?
