Here is a beautiful example of how to preserve the character of a Spanish Colonial Revival home.
This new second-story remodel is only a few years old and yet it looks all original, thanks to good planning by an architect and homeowners who have a keen sensitivity for historic design and details (see the wrought iron work in their front yard) .
The Spanish Colonial Revival period style (1915 – 1940) features:
1. Stucco surfaces
2. Low pitched pantile roofs
3. Use of decorative iron work for windows, doors and balconies
4. Glazed tile used for wall decoration
