Tudor Revival

Private Residence

The Tudor Revival Period was from 1900 to roughly 1940. When most people think "Tudor," they think of decorative half-timbering; however, almost half of all Tudor homes have no half-timbering. Features of this style include a steeply pitched roof with side gables, tall and narrow windows in groups, and massive chimneys. Perhaps the most beautiful residence ever built in York—City or County—is the Emerton Family Home, which is now known as The Hahn Home. Some historians classify this structure into a "Jacobethian Revival" sub-category of Tudor.
