A Tudor Revival House Set in a Garden

A touch of “Olde England” in New England

The Tudor Revival style looked toward the England of Queen Elizabeth I for inspiration in houses that tended toward elements of asymmetry in form. These ranged from “storybook” cottages to grand mansions. They were typically built with stone, brick, or stucco and often incorporated half-timbering and diamond paned casement windows. This was perhaps the most romantic of the early 20th century revival styles.

Tudor Revival is one of 25 styles described and illustrated with multiple examples in Chapter 2 of Restoring Your Historic House, The Comprehensive Guide for Homeowners – now available for pre-order!
