English Cottage Revival

English cottage surrounded by Tudors

My House:

English Cottage Revival home located in Hammond, IN. Built in 1925. The house has an interesting open floor layout, which was not common at the time.

My Puzzle:

The high and acute gables are just amazing.

I think this has a more specialized style, but the historical society has labeled it English Cottage.

America has been a country of immigrants and the historical districts are a living proof of migrant patterns.


  • What size home (square footage) was considered upper class?
  • Were copper cornices prevalent in this type of architecture?
  • What features should my family room w/fire place and wooden walls have to maintain "English Cottage" integrity?

Jackie Craven, About.com Architecture, says:

What a delightful house! It's impossible to say what size home would be considered upper class during the early 20th century, but copper cornices and gutters were not unusual for fine homes of the period. To learn more about this charming style and find decorating ideas, explore the resources on our Tudor Cottage page.
