Spotted in Scranton, PA… A sweet Tudor Revival style house of the 1920s. Tudor Revival was a popular romantic style for homes in the early 20th century, from small “storybook” kit-house cottages to the grand architect-designed 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 while making necessary changes to accommodate life in the 21st century.
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.”
The award-winning and bestselling 720-page hardcover book now available in bookstores nationwide and from online retailers.
