How well do you know your Denver architecture? When it comes to homes, the city has a handful of distinct styles, recently detailed in 5280 magazine’s feature “Denver Architecture 101.” Following in 5280’s footsteps, we are offering an ongoing tutorial of Denver’s iconic options. Today, we study the Tudor Revival.
What to look for: “Hansel and Gretel would feel at home in a Tudor,” notes 5280. Indeed, with their romantic entryways and gingerbread look, these homes seem like something out of a fairytale. Tudor Revival homes often have steep roofs, decorative chimneys and geometrical wood patterns on brick, stucco or slate. They might also feature herringbone brickwork and oriel windows projecting outwardly from the home like small turrets—conjuring visions of a young prince calling up to Rapunzel to let down her golden hair. In other words, it’s easy to imagine you’re own happily-ever-after in a house like this.
Where to find them: Belcaro, Bonnie Brae, Mayfair, Montclair, Washington Park, Park Hill.
