Tudor Style front doors and Windows

Distinctive design

Originating in England in the 15th century, Tudor architecture is most easily recognized by the use of dark, vertical half timbers on the top portion of the home, typically combined with lighter-colored stucco. The bottom portion of the house commonly features brick or stone, giving the home a stately English cottage feel. Tudor-style front doors often showcase a dark, rich woodgrain finish with characteristics such as embossed panels, arch-top glass, or accessories such as speakeasys, hinge straps, or clavos. Tudor window styles may include features such as groupings of tall, narrow casement windows, double hung windows with Colonial grids, eyebrow shaped windows, or windows with decorative glass.

Tudor homes became popular in America in the early 1900s, marking a Tudor Revival period that began to fade during the Great Depression. Often referred to as “Stockbrokers Tudors,” Tudor style homes were commonly built in affluent suburban neighborhoods, and today they serve as an elegant reminder of days gone by.
