Excerpt

The duration of the Tudor style in Portland left a wide collection of houses bearing its characteristics. The Tudor style began at the turn of the century and lasted well into the depression years of the 1930s. Although exhibiting other stylistic influences, such as from the Craftsman and Arts and Crafts styles, even Norman architecture, the houses grouped into this category have at least some elements of the Tudor style in common. The development of the style has a long history, beginning in the Tudor period (1485-1603) in medieval England, resurfacing in England in the 1860's, and coming to the United States shortly thereafter.

The architectural characteristics of the Tudor style have remained fairly constant since the fifteenth century. The most readily recognizable characteristic is the half-timbering, where the post-and-beam construction is revealed on the exterior of the house and is infilled with nogging of stuccoed brick or stone. Even the bracing is revealed, often elaborated into designs and giving a highly decorative effect. Second floors often cantilevered out over the narrow streets of old England, providing additional floor space on the crowded lots ... The second defining characteristic of the Tudor style is the decorated and fanciful bargeboards. Those found in the fifteenth-century Ockwells Manor House in Berkshire, England, for example, are especially attractive, and such historic designs also greatly influenced design in the Gothic Revival period of the 1840s and 1850s. Other bargeboards, such as that on Leycester's Hospital (1571) in Warwick, were simpler, but they had highly carved surfaces. These bargeboards influenced the Queen Anne style houses in Portland during the 1880s and 1890s as well as many of the Tudor style houses after the turn of the century.
