Tudor Revival style
Tudor Revival style(1910–1940)
A residential style loosely based on English Tudor style architecture; typical elements include asymmetrical massing; steeply pitched, cross-gabled roofs; half-timbered patterns on upper exterior walls; tall, multipaned casement windows; massive chimneys with chimney pots; and Tudor arches. A typically asymmetrical style, with the exterior clad in brick or stucco and employing a false half-timbering treatment. It typically employs steeply pitched gables with little overhang at the eaves; bargeboards on the gables; tall, massive, elaborate chimneys; and narrow casement windows usually set with a number of small, diamond-shaped panes, often within a Tudor arch.
