The Tudor Revival- Cincinnati Home Styles

Tudor Revival houses are probably some of the easiest to identify- we have quite a large collection of them here in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky.  You’ve probably seen them in Hyde Park, Mt Lookout, Roselawn, Lakeside Park and many other neighborhoods.  This architectural style became popular in 1920s and 30s.

Tudors are easily recognizable by their decorative half timbering where the wood framing is exposed- this wood framing would have been structural in medieval times but is now merely suggesting the framework.   These homes typically have steep pitched roofs with intersecting gables.  The rest of the construction can either be brick or masonry, many times with rubble stone.  Tudors usually have irregular plans, massive decorative chimneys, and tall narrow windows.

Lets see some pictures of your Tudor Revival!
