Living in a Tudor Revival


Easily recognizable these have a Shakespearean vibe to them. Steep roof lines and exposed beams and stucco and brick exteriors. Large bedrooms and living spaces are a hallmark of Tudor or Tudor Revival homes (Revival homes have drawn inspiration from the original architecture, i.e. Tudor architecture) and feel very livable and private once inside. With the central living areas on the main level, most Tudors are 2 stories with bedrooms upstairs and sometimes include basements.

Artistic iron work, strong lines, leaded glass windows and stucco finish give these home a formal and elegant vibe. Tudors feature leaded glass windows, stucco fireplaces, hardwood floors, extensive iron work and built in's. I think of these as storybook homes full of interesting embellishments and decorations that lend such a unique flavor to any neighborhood. A bit formal but super comfortable to live in.

This home is the predecessor to the English Cottage, a smaller more streamlined version of the Tudor-style. The Bungalow style borrowed from the Tudor with some of the exterior finishes and design elements, like half timbering.
