Tudor Houses

tudor style housePopular from the late nineteenth to the early twentieth century, the Tudor style also found its roots in English Renaissance dwellings of the sixteenth and early seventeenth century. The Tudor house rambled and sprawled, was asymmetrical as well, featuring a steeply-pitched roof, intersecting gables, and long rows of encasement windows. Presently, a Tudor has been adapted into the middle-class, suburban home that is so ubiquitous. It’s smaller than the previous Tudor, but just as popular—if not more. A subtype of this style is the Cotswold Cottage (or storybook style). This sub-style is based on homes in the Cotswold area of England.
