Looking up Tudor I encountered that they are both right. Its a Tudor / English Revival. I guess they are somewhat interchangable. Looks like a Tudor with less flair or closer to english revival with Tudor tendencies.

TUDOR REVIVAL STYLE, ca. 1910 – 1940
The Tudor Revival style was an other popular national style of the early 20th century. These dwellings are based upon medieval house forms of England and were built in America from 1915 to 1940. These house forms have high pitched gable roofs, multiple gables on the main facade, and are generally of brick and stucco construction. Doors are often set within rounded or Tudor arches while windows often have multiple lights in the upper and lower sashes. In gable fields stucco and wood are often combined to create the appearance of a design known as “half-timbering.” Examples of the Tudor Revival style are scattered throughout both the Elgin and Spring/Douglas Historic Districts such as the dwellings at 1031 N. Spring Street and 50 N. Liberty Street.
