This architectural style was popular between the late nineteenth century and the early twentieth century. They are best identified by their simple stucco facades and red tile roofs. Other common elements include round top doors, tall round top windows (often paired), balconets and a courtyard wall. Inside you can often find one room that is two stories tall with a wood beamed ceiling reminiscent of a chapel. Most homes of this style were built before 1920. They were one of many styles built during America’s fascination with revival architecture so this syle is sometimes also referred to as a “Spanish Revival”. See also “Balconet”.
