Tudor Revival (1890s-1940s)

The Tudor Revival style draws its inspiration from late Medieval houses.  Although the earliest American examples date from the 1890s, most examples date from the 1920s when the style became very popular in suburban neighborhoods.  In the Ithaca area we are likely to find Tudors in Cayuga Heights and Belle Sherman.

Look for:  steeply pitched roof with cross gables, multi-paned double-hung windows, half-timbering as a decorative rather than structural element.
