Browse Tudor Revival houses for sale in Los Angeles, CA.
Tudor Revival homes were built with very similar features as their predecessors, but thatched roofs were replaced with slate. They have an old-world charm, reminiscent of an English country manor.
These styles of homes are also known as Mock Tudor and Jacobeans. The American Tudor Revival became an Anglophile phenomenon in the suburbs of the 1920s and later. The term Stockbroker Tudor is a pointed reference to bourgeois houses built by conservative new money.
Common features of Tudor Revival style homes include steeply pitched roofs with multiple gables, rectangular shape, two to three stories, half timber and half stucco or brick facade, cantilevered second story over a porch, windows with square- or diamond-shaped panes, tall chimneys, Medieval looking doors with iron details, and asymmetrical floor plans.
Original Tudor architecture originated in the United States in the mid-19th century and continued to grow in popularity until World War II. They were designed to weather cold and wet climates in the northern half of the US which get heavy rain and snow but have been popular throughout other areas of the country too.
