Tudor homes were created and built during the Tudor dynasty between the late 1400s through the early 1600s. These iconic homes had and continue to feature a distinctive and highly contrasting style of light and dark-hued appearance with half-timbered wood embellishment. At one time, this half-timbered look was achieved by filling the wooden frame with brickwork and plaster; however, today's Tudor house plans achieve the half-timbered look using decorative materials that mimic the traditional Tudor style.

This dramatic exterior is easily recognizable. Although Tudor-style house plans fell out of style at one point, they experienced a revival both in the early part of the 20th century and towards the end of the century. Originating in Europe, these charming homes display great character and massive curb appeal. With its rich and varied history, our collection of Tudor house plans combines this lovely style's architectural essence and sensibility with the modern features many families building homes today desire. 

Old English Tudor house plans are generally characterized by their steeply pitched gable roofs, elaborately embellished doorways and windows, bold exterior chimneys, and decorative half-timbering. They are often magical and romantic. A storybook exterior often accompanies the whimsical nature of these homes, which can be pretty decorative or simple; regardless, these homes are highlighted with a distinctive, historical look and feel that accompanies the flexible interior floor plans.

Tudor house plans are well suited for narrow property lots and often include a courtyard entry garage. Along with these space-saving garages, Tudor homes feature charming exterior elements that seem more suited for the English countryside than urban lots and city streets. These homes may feature extensive rooflines and magical exteriors that include turrets, decorative arches, and sweeping curves, which can be decorative or practical accompaniments to the house, whether providing streaming sunlight into the home, a spot to read or relax or a seamless transition from one area of the home to another.

These solid exteriors are timeless and tend to be constructed from materials designed to last a lifetime. While many Tudor homes lack front-covered porches, some protective alcove is usually highlighted on the exterior; additionally, there may be an entrance or porte-cochere for family and guests' protection from weather-related elements. Modern Tudor house plans will feature some form of rear outdoor space for entertaining and relaxing, perhaps, a sunroom, covered porch, or verandah. Perfect for a wooded setting or English landscape garden, these roomy fairytale homes are ideal for families and entertaining.

Tudor house plans are usually thought of as having large floor plans with elaborate, well-laid-out interiors; however, small Tudor house plans are not uncommon. Warm and comfortable home furnishings complement the interior layout, where these solidly constructed homes feature internal floor plans that are family-friendly and made for entertainment purposes.

Red or dark brickwork mimicking the exterior may be brought into the interior, as well as wood floors, burnished interior wall paint, and luxurious rugs and draperies enhancing the homes' warmth and character. In addition, modern Tudor house plans may feature casual and open floor plans, more formal in nature, or perhaps a combination of both if the family and guests have plenty of room to socialize and comfortably entertain.

These iconic homes are easily recognizable and remain highly desirable. Their Old-World style continues to focus on solid, well-built homes that feature distinguishing characteristics on both the exterior and interior. Storybook detailing, countryside charm, and exquisite craftsmanship continue to highlight the beauty and desirability of this visually appealing architectural style. Romantic architecture and the fascinating history of Tudor homes inspire today's homes toward traditional and classic house designs with an infusion of modern, fresh ideas bringing them into the 21st century.
