    Tudor Revival houses come in various sizes from one-and-a-half story cottages to two-and-a-half story mansions. The style is easily identified by its characteristic half-timbering, a decorative treatment that appears to expose structural elements. The spaces between the timbers are nogged (filled in) with stone or brick, and usually stuccoed, but sometimes left exposed. Tudor Revival was based on 17th-Century Elizabethan architecture in England, revived by English architect Richard Norman Shaw in the 1880s. Houses may be a combination of brick, rubble stone, and half-timbering. Steeply pitched roofs have intersecting gables and dormer windows. Casement windows (hinged at the sides to open outward) or double hung windows are multi-paned, often with diamond shaped panes. (

    Key Elements - Steep, multi-gabled roof lines. It is not uncommon for the eaves of these dramatic homes to plunge clear down to ground level, or close to it. The roof lines of Tudor homes are almost always graced with massive chimneys, constructed of brick or stone. Decorative entryways, often arched and outlined with decorative brick or stone work. Windows in groups of two, three or four. (
