Tudor Revival

The Vintage Homes: Tudor Revival


Solid and stylish, Tudor Revival homes became the most popular choice in the Denver area in the 1920s and 1930s. These homes had a simple, rustic appeal that harkened back to medieval cottages. Considered a reaction to the compact Bungalow, Tudor homes were built with steeply pitched roofs, front and side gables, half timbering, elaborate brickwork, terra cotta details, high chimneys and tall casement windows. On the inside, they often included grand front rooms, beautifully crafted iron and mahogany doors, crystal doorknobs, coved ceilings, elaborate oak trim and floors, wood fireplaces and elaborate fixtures. In Denver, Tudor homes were constructed almost exclusively with stone and brick. You’ll find some of the best preserved Tudor homes in neighborhoods including Bonnie Brae, Country Club, Crestmoor, Hilltop, Montclair and Park Hill.
