Tudor Revival?

The Boulevard Historical District (a local designation) contains architecturally interesting homes — both large, medium, and small. I’m guessing the above charmer is a Tudor Revival. Do you agree? A picture of one similar is found on page 23 of “Historic Districts in Anderson, South Carolina.” I love the white wood. (I wonder if that is what the article means by “half-timbering.”) And, of course, the diamond-patterned window panes. Very cool. (You can tell it was overcast this past Sunday. I barely got the pics taken before the rain started.) Another view of the above pic is here. Though the front perspective is possibly more charming, the above view allows us to see the gorgeous side gable and the depth of the front two gables, where the entry way is more prominent.
