French Normandy Tudor Revival

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.

Like most Tudor Revival houses stone, stucco, or brick cladding are typically used, often with decorative half timbering. Diamond paned casement windows and slate roofs are common.

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 charming example is located in Easton, Pennsylvania.

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.”
