A “Jacobethan” Tudor Revival style house in York, PA.
The “Jacobethan” variation of the Tudor Revival mixes architectural elements from the times of Queen Elizabeth I and King James I – often applied to houses that are still Queen Anne in form, as in this case. This house with Classical detailing would be Free Classic Queen Anne style or with scroll-cut and turned ornament would be Victorian Queen Anne in style.
Tudor Revival was a popular romantic style for homes in the early 20th century with a number of variations. The houses range from small “storybook” kit-house cottages to the grand suburban mansions that led the style to be nicknamed “Stockbroker Tudor.” These wonderful houses survive in all sizes from Maine to California.
Understanding the style, or styles, of a house will help you identify which features are character-defining so you can prioritize their preservation.
Tudor Revival is one of 25 historic architectural styles described and illustrated in Chapter 2 of “Restoring Your Historic House, The Comprehensive Guide for Homeowners.”
