Spanish Colonial Homes

A mixture of Spanish Colonial and Mediterranean design features, the architectural style was the design of Bertram Goodhue, a famous California architect.  This style, one of the first to earn its own classification, dots the landscape across Southern California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, and Florida. Spanish styling was popularized in Hollywood when celebrities built Spanish Colonial style homes for the personal residences. These homes feature tile roofs, stucco and painted stucco exteriors, and rounded doorways and windows.
