Originally referred to as “Elizabethan” Architecture, because it refers to English Cottages built during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I. (She was the last Tudor Monarch.) The Tudor Architectural Style was revitalized in the 1880’s by Richard Norman Shaw. The most identifiable feature of the Tudor Style is the half-timbering. Other features include steep roof forms, curved roof elements, brick, stucco and timber exterior, substantial brick chimneys, and smaller, vertically proportioned windows with divided lite patterns.
