Tudor

Tudor Revival was an especially popular choice for 1920s suburban homes which were loosely based on late medieval prototypes. Many homes are identified by false half-timbering, a medieval English building tradition that often includes stucco or masonry veneered walls, steeply pitched roofs, and cross-gabled plans. A variation of this is sometimes referred to as the Picturesque Cottage or the English Cottage, which typically includes an asymmetrical floor plan without half-timbering. A whimsical variant of the Tudor Revival is the Storybook Style which is also known as the Cotswold Cottage or Hansel & Gretel Cottage.
