The 1912 Albert H. Jarecki House is blended Tudor Revival and Craftsman style stone and shingle house with a rolled-edge roof in Erie, PA.
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. Craftsman style homes often combine fieldstone bases with shingled upper stories with exposed framing element tails.
The rolled-edge roof that is intended to create the effect of a thick thatched roof on an English cottage can occasionally be found on Tudor Revival houses and is a character-defining feature of the style. Distinctive features like this should be preserved if at all possible.
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.”
