1019. 525 W. Walnut - Tudor Revival

c. 1910 Decorative half-timbering on the second level, the massive brick chimney and tile roof define this as a Tudor Revival style home. The immense porch columns and bracketed porte-cochere are unique features. Notice other original characteristics such as the six-over-six windows and storm and entry door with sidelights. (Tudor Revival: The name Tudor suggests that these houses imitate English architecture from the early 16th century. They include a steeply pitched roof, prominent cross gables, small window panes, massive chimneys and “halftimbers.” A “half-timbered” building has exposed wood framing. The spaces between the wooden timbers are filled with plaster, brick, or stone.)
