Browse Spanish style houses for sale in Long Beach, CA.
Spanish style homes exist due to the Spanish settlers who came to America from 1600-1800, and although they arrived through North America, they sought out states with Spain-like climates: Florida, California, Texas, Arizona, and others and built their new homes using materials easily available to them like adobe with a stucco finish and clay tile roofs. As they settled in various regions of the southwest, their homes became a reflection of the land on which they built them.
The Spanish Colonial era ended in mid-1800 but was later revived in the 1900s when Spanish Colonial Revival became a highly demanded residential architecture style. Spanish style houses have a long history. The first examples were found in medieval Andalusia, and many of the Moorish features such as horseshoe arches and window grilles can still be seen today.
You can find Spanish-style homes in many US states but they're most common in the southwest - in the likes of California and Florida.
Thick, white stucco walls with red barrel (terracotta) tiled roofs are two of the most striking features of Spanish style houses. Low-pitched, asymmetrical, and slightly rounded arches, doors, and windows complete the look for this Mediterranean style.
Other common features include the use of indigenous and local materials, small but open windows, limited ornamentation, wooden support beams, wrought iron elements, curved edge walls, and enclosed courtyards.
