Tudor House Plans

Tudor House Plans

Tudor-revival houses are styled after English medieval homes and were prevalent in the early 1900's. Originally the homes were of timber frame construction, with exposed structural members and exterior materials consisting of stone, stucco. This style was built prolifically in historic suburban neighborhoods and would be well suited today for a larger urban lot. Today's Tudor homes may be a mixture of weathered brick, course stonework, stucco or clapboard siding. Shutters add charm, as do details such as elaborate chimneys placed in prominent locations at the front or side of the house, leaded casement windows, and arched entries. Most Tudor homes employ half timbering for that quintessential English look. Add window boxes with blossoming flowers and train ivy to climb the chimney for a picture-perfect Tudor. The interior of a Tudor home can be very charming, with window seats, built-ins, and intimate spaces such as a study or sunroom.
