Lot Size: 18,480 sqft. Per Assessor?s Records ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~The Mediterranean style is heavily influenced by the architecture of Spain, Italy, Morocco, Greece & Majorca. In the 1920?s the wealthy traveled extensively, fell in love with the architecture of those countries and were eager to replicate it here in the United States, especially California & Florida. It was common for the Mediterranean style homes to be built with fixtures & architectural elements imported from Seville & Tunisia, ceramic tiles often came from Europe, not Mexico. Another major influence was the similarity of the climates of California & the Mediterranean; many Mediterranean plant varieties were imported: cypress, olive, citrus, rosemary, lavender & thyme, to name a few. This also introduced pergolas, loggias, patios & terraces and encouraged the desire for dining & entertaining outdoors. Some common features of Mediterranean style architecture: These homes are generally symmetrical & simple, often two-story buildings with low-pitched hipped roofs with red tile. Decorative brackets under eaves are often seen. Stucco exterior walls. Stucco is breathable, sustainable, and fire resistant. Other features you'll find are heavy carved wooden doors, and arches above windows, doors, and even porches. Ornate low leaf carvings highlight arches, columns, window surrounds, cornices & parapets. Many of these homes have decorative vents on the exterior of them. Niches are common. Chimney tops may be elaborate. Loggias and arcades are present. There is often extensive use  More Less
