A sweet Tudor Revival style house of the 1920s in Wheeling, West Virginia.
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.
The houses are typically asymmetrical in form, making this example an exception with its carefully balanced facade. The stucco cladding, half-timbering in the gables, casement windows, arched entryway, and exterior stone chimney are all common features of the style.
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.”
