The best way to learn about historic houses is to look at them closely, and the most fun way to look at them closely is to do a puzzle showing a wonderful historic house! So, we made a unique and interesting collection of Historic House Puzzles for you to enjoy!
The Tudor Revival style looked toward the England of Queen Elizabeth I for inspiration in houses that tended toward elements of asymmetry in form. These ranged from “storybook” cottages to grand mansions.
They were typically built with stone, brick, or stucco and often incorporated half-timbering and diamond paned or leaded casement windows. This was perhaps the most romantic of the early 20th century revival styles. This example of the style was built in 1919 in the Western Promenade neighborhood of Portland, Maine.
Tudor Revival is one of 25 styles described and illustrated with multiple examples in Chapter 2 of “Restoring Your Historic House, The Comprehensive Guide for Homeowners.”
