Browse Hacienda style houses for sale in Los Angeles, CA.
Hacienda is the Spanish word for an estate and back in the day, some were plantations, mines, factories, or a combination of all three.
This architecture style is native to Mexico and Spain but arrived in the US around 1600 when Spanish settlers moved here and was prominent until mid-1800 when the Spanish Colonial era ended.
These settlers arrived through North America but sought out states with warm and dry climates like Florida, California, Texas, Arizona, and others. They built their new homes using materials easily available to them like adobe with a stucco finish and low-pitched red clay tile roofs.
Hacienda style architecture shares many characteristics with Spanish Colonial, Spanish, and Spanish Colonial Revival architecture.
Expect features like white stucco or adobe walls, red clay (Terracotta) roof tiles, courtyards, arched doorways, few and small windows with spindles, little or no decoration, stone, tile, and cobbled floors, rustic wood, and exposed wood beams.
