French Normandy Variant of Tudor Revival Style

An example of the French Normandy variant of the Tudor Revival style. In France’s Normandy region, farm silos were often attached to houses. After World War I, a romanticized version of this traditional French farmhouse appeared as a variant of the popular Tudor Revival style known as French Normandy. Typical Tudor Revival stone, stucco, or brick cladding are used, often with decorative half timbering.

The French Normandy variant is distinguished by a round stone tower topped by a conical roof. This usually serves as the entrance to the home, as seen here. These house were primarily built in the 1920’s and 30’s. This house is a late example, having been built in 1948.

Tudor Revival and its variants is one of 25 styles described and illustrated with multiple examples in Chapter 2 of Restoring Your Historic House, The Comprehensive Guide for Homeowners.
