The Tudor Revival was a very popular style for homes, especially country houses, from the 1860s through the 1920s. It was an eclectic blend of Gothic and early English Renaissance styles with half-timber construction. Compared to other styles of the Victorian period it was relatively simple. It epitomized the informal, picturesque tendencies of the time, using a profusion of gables and a mixture of materials, often with brick or stone on the lower levels and exposed timber above.

The High Gate Carriage House - 1910

The High Gate carriage house was built circa 1910-1913 by Fairmont industrialist and financier, James E. Watson, scion of the "father of West Virginia coal industry," James O. Watson. Designed by Philadelphia architect Horace Trumbauer, the stable and the adjacent mansion remain fine examples of Tudor revival architecture with half-timbering, stucco wall cladding and clay-tiled roofs -- an academic style based upon late Medieval English prototypes that was common among suburban domestic architecture in the United States in the early-20th century.

As a work of art these prints are worth purchasing in their own right. For those of you interested in building a historically inspired house, these plans offer an excellent starting point. The first floor of the two-story, U-shaped carriage house housed horses and living quarters, while the second floor served both as a residence for the servants and a storage area for hay. Attached to the right wing of the carriage house is a one-story chicken house. A courtyard rests in front of the stable's entryway. The extensive number of rooms make this plan adaptable in a number of ways. The plan is ideally suited for a flat site. This house would be comfortable in a suburban or country setting. This spacious home has outside dimensions of approximately 74' x 130'.

SHIPPING: Your drawings are shipped to you, by US Postal Service, rolled, not folded, in a Priority Mail tube.

IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO BUILD: These plans are NOT complete architectural drawings as might be required by your local permitting agency and do not contain all the structural, waterproofing and other details and information necessary for construction. But your local builder or architect should be able to adapt these drawings and add to them as necessary. What they do provide is accurate design information about a REAL Tudor Style home, not a pseudo-Tudor tract house as you will find in the house plan magazines on your supermarket shelf. (TU004)
