Jacobethan Revival

Jacobethan style, Jacobethan Revival

A mode of Tudor Revival architecture, of limited popularity from the 1800s to about 1920, that was a blend of Jacobean and Elizabethan architecture; hence, the compound term. Such buildings are often characterized by front-facing gables that rise above the roofline; elaborate brickwork or stonework; quoins at the corners of the building; occasionally, turrets or towers; stone straight-line gables or multicurved gables, tall decorative chimneys; rectangular window frames, usually containing small, leaded panes of glass set in casement sashes.
