They were built for wealthy homeowners, made of solid masonry with elaborate decorative stone and brickwork. They were sometimes called “Stockbroker Tudors” because their well-off owners had frequently made their wealth in the booming 1920s stock market.
Tudor homes are characterized by steeply pitched gable roofs, embellished doorways, playfully elaborate masonry chimneys, and decorative half-timbering with masonry or stone between the timbers. The most prevalent building material for American Tudors was brick.
