Based on English homes that were built near the end of the medieval period, the style is named for the Tudor family, which ruled England during that time. The exterior of a modern-day Tudor style home features false half-timbered stucco, duplicating the look of the original building technique which was an integral part of the home’s structure. Other features include beautifully patterned brick or stonework, cross-gabled, steeply pitched roofs, and tall, narrow windows. Fine craftsmanship is a prized characteristic of the Tudor interior, defined by arched doors, wainscot paneling, decorative mantles, beamed ceilings and millwork with ornamental detailing, providing a sense of history and elegance.
