Need help identifying Architectural style!

Purchased this him as a restoration project. It is located in Avondale, a prominent suburb of Jacksonville, Florida that is dominated with Arts & Crafts cottages, Queen Anne's and American Four Squares. The local preservation society is telling me that they believe it is a Tudor Revival but I have my doubts. What style to you think this home best identifies with?

Looks more Gothic Revival than Tudor Revival.

When was it built? Is it painted brick all the way around? Is the white trim original or added, do you know? Is the front door rounded or rectangular?

Smileyface2013... The home was build in 36. It is painted brick all the way around. if, by white trim, you are referring to the iron work around the porch, I am not sure, but i believe it was added. The front door is rectangular. Thank you for all of your questions!

It appears that a lot of changes or additions were made to the original house, and without knowing what's original and what has been changed, it's difficult guess. Two features that point towards the tudor style are the quions and the second floor narrow arched opening, both of which appear to be original. The iron trim and windows could have have been changed or added on later, as well as the other decorative trim. Other clues that might help you would be interior finishings, such as fireplace style, flooring style (again if original) and anything else that's historic in style.
