A Tutoring in Tudor Style!

Fantastic Tudor Homes in the Kansas City Area!

History of the Tudor Style, and Active Tudor Homes on the Market

We love Tudors!

No, we aren’t talking about the Showtime television series (though we are sure that has its merits as well)- but in this case, we are talking about the historical housing style within so many of the charming homes within the Kansas City area. You most likely have seen the style we mean, especially if you are driving through the older part of the city, even if you couldn’t put a name to it.

Tudor architecture comes to us from the “Tudor” time period in England, which was roughly between the years 1485 and 1558, where this style of building represented an outward display of wealth. While the Kansas City architecture isn’t nearly that old, the facades and interiors of our area Tudors still reflect much of the original detailing that makes that architectural style so distinctive. The Tudor style eventually immigrated to America and was a popular building design between 1890 and 1940.

Do you want to sell your home and move to something a little more perfect for  you?  You may have realized that your current home no longer fits your needs. Find out how much your current home could be worth in today's real estate market here. 

Tudor homes are constructed mainly of brick, stucco, and stone.  They are often characterized by two or more stories,  steep rooflines, arched front doorways, large front facade fireplace chimneys, and dark brown or black timbering. Various sizes of windows clustered together with decorative panes, and oftentimes a swooping roofline or entryway are indicative of the Tudor design. Design features were often asymmetrical, giving way to creativity in feature placement, as opposed to more symmetrical colonial-style counterparts. Typical exterior colors are white and black, mixed with the stone/brick/stucco structure. Inside, there are plastered walls,  exposed wood beams, rounded doorways, large fireplaces, and unique floorplans. In the original Tudor design, the more glass or elaborate wood beams or features that were displayed in your home - the wealthy you were - since both of those elements were at a premium.  An interesting fact is that in those days, glass was so expensive, if a person ended up moving homes, they would take their windows with them. Thankfully, that practice is no longer observed!

Some new construction homes are currently being built with some Tudor-esque features, though to replicate an original Tudor in its entirety with its unique craftsmanship would not be cost-effective for today’s construction methods. So instead, some of the elements in today’s architecture are inspired by original Tudor elements.

All in all, whether you are interested in purchasing an original historic Tudor within the city limits, or want to embrace some of the finer design features with a new build, there are many choices within our area. We’ve culled a list for you of some active Tudor or Tudor-esque homes currently available for purchase. Interested in seeing one?   Give us a shout and we will meet you there!
