Neo-Tudor

Descriptive of a Neo-Eclectic architecture, vaguely imitative of its earlier Tudor architecture and Tudor Revival prototypes. Houses are usually one or two stories with front-facing gables, and generally usually characterized by: false half-timbering and strapwork employed as decorative elements; masonry or stucco walls on the ground floor, sometimes with a different treatment on the walls of the floor above; occasionally, an overhanging upper story; a shingle-covered, steeply pitched roof; prominent chimney stacks; groups of tall, narrow windows separated by mullions, often set with small panes of leaded glass that are either diamond-shaped or square-shaped, set diagonally.
