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.
These houses are typically asymmetrical in form, like this house. The stucco cladding, half-timbering in the gables, leaded casement windows, arched entryway, and prominent chimney are all common features of the style. The “rustic” masonry of rough bricks and various stones is also characteristic of the style. This example is elevated (literally and figuratively) by its setting.
Understanding a house’s style will help you identify character-defining features to 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.”
