Tudor Design

On most streets, a Tudor home would stand out sharply from the neighboring homes, but walking through the Tudor Revival homes on Willborough Road and Willborough Place is like walking in an English village.

Key elements of the Tudorbethan style include:

  • Half-Timber Framing
  • Steeply Pitched Roofs
  • High Chimneys
  • Gabled Dormer Windows
  • Tall Antique Mullioned Windows
  • Antique Diamond Quarry Windows
