Spanish Style Homes

Spanish is a style of home which was very popular in the United States from 1915 to 1945. The Spanish style has stucco exteriors, clay tile roofs, beams, wrought-iron details and repeated arches around walkways. Front doors are of heavy carved wood and porches sometimes have spiral columns. Walls and floors are often covered with patterned tiles. Some even contain enclosed courtyards.
