All About A Tudor House
While most of these Tudor style houses in Dallas have their origins around the start of the 1900's, when the style was very popular with both builders and consumers, the Tudor architecture started making a strong return in the Dallas-Fort Worth real estate market around the turn of the century in the year 2000. Buyers started to crave the old architecture of the Tudor style and, to meet that demand, builders started once again building new construction in this style.
As with most new construction properties, new and newer Tudor homes will price more per square foot. However, there is an exception to that rule - the older Tudor style homes which have been updated and meticulously restored to their original form and beauty will generally fetch even more money per square foot than a new home. Remember, buyers wanting that true architectural style of a Tudor home are much more likely to fall in love and seek the truest of the style.
For most buyers, purchasing an English Tudor house is close to buying a certain piece of art. The buyers are picky, know what they want and will only settle for that right property. Most of these buyers also have the wherewithal to both purchase this type of house and maintain the home accordingly. Buyers go into the purchase understanding that they now have the duty to maintain the architecture and original charm.

History of Tudor Homes
You've probably heard of a Tudor style house, but do you know how this architecture came about or how to identify one?
Between 1890 and 1940, there were several homes that were built in United States that combined late Medieval and early Renaissance styles. They are known as English Tudor homes or mock Tudors as they took inspiration from timber-framed cottages that were built during England's Tudor Dynasty which was four hundred to five hundred years before. In the United States, this was the most popular home to build during the 1920s and 1930s.
Around World War II, this style of the Tudor house became less popular when a more American style, Colonial Revival, was encouraged. Years later in the 1970s and 1980s, modified English Tudor homes once again became popular.
While there are many different types of buyers of an English Tudor house, such as those who really like the architecture or the historic aspect, they typically are purchased by families who need a lot of space or by those buyers wanting a real piece of history to restore and/or preserve. Most buyers of Tudor homes have a deep appreciation for the style of home and know exactly what they want.
Tudor House Plans
Most Tudor homes are two-story, though they can occasionally be found as a one-story, and characteristics include:
Tudors often have the brick in an elaborate pattern on the first story and stucco or wood in a decorative pattern on the second story.
One of the most distinguishing features of these homes is their steeply gabled roof where the main gable generally has a cross gable or secondary side.
The entrance of a Tudor style home serves three functions: decoration, protection, and of course, entry. The protection is in the thick masonry walls that permit a recessed door, and the Renaissance style decoration includes fancy black metal door hardware, arched openings, and board and batten doors.
Older homes were typically built very well, however, all homes need maintenance. Depending on the age of the Tudor, it can be on the expensive side due to the plaster walls, slate roof, and leaded-glass windows.
When it comes to landscaping, many new homeowners wonder how to spruce up the outside of their Tudor style home. It's best to keep the design in the front simple in order to accent the home's decorative features. This can be done by adding shade trees to the side (so they don't block the facade), and low-growing foundation plants to the front. To keep with the historic aspect, add a topiary to each side of the driveway in the shape of boxes, pyramids, or spheres.
