In a market like Dallas, which although sits in the northern part of Texas is still located in the southwestern part of the United States, Spanish style homes are not only prevalent, but also quite popular as well.
Sometimes referred to as Spanish Revival, Spanish-style architecture, as it relates to single-family homes, started to gain momentum in the early 1900s and continued an upward trend all the way though the the mid 1940s. Distinct for elements like stucco exterior, clay-tile roofs, exposed beams, and wrought-iron accents, these and other unique characteristics certainly help make Spanish-style homes stand out, helping give each residence a little charm and character during a time when traditional cookie-cutter homes started to blow up all over town, especially between 1940 and 1960.
Having got its start in California and Florida, which are two locations most known for Mediterranean-inspired houses, Spanish Revival architecture is almost the perfect hybrid for the DFW area or just about anywhere in Texas specifically thanks to its close proximity to Mexico.
Other typical features relating to Spanish-Revival homes include large carved wood doors, spacious porches with spiral columns, and plenty of authentic interior finishes as well like patterned tile flooring and arched doorways between rooms.
