Tudor style homes are a revival, based on medieval English architecture. Tudors are one of the most distinct and recognizable home styles. They are best known for their irregular plans, steeply pitched and cross-gabled roofs and decorative half-timber framing. Tudors can also have patterned brickwork, lancet windows, and massive brick or stone chimneys capped with elaborate chimney pots. Inside a Tudor home you’ll find vaulted ceilings with exposed beams, Inglenooks, arched doorways, informal open floor plans, stained wood trims, rough troweled plaster, wrought iron hardware and light fixtures. This style stands alone with no sub-styles. Tudor elements however, are commonly used in the Storybook Cottage.
