A 1920s Tudor Revival style house in Scranton, 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.
This example caries forward the 19th century Queen Anne style in its form with a complex roof, wrap-around porch, and balcony but uses Tudor Revival elements like the stucco exterior, half-timbering, and casement windows to bring the house “up to date” for the 1920s.
Understanding the style, or styles, of a house will help you identify which features are character-defining so you can prioritize their preservation.
