Spanish or Mediterranean style house plans are most commonly found in warm climates where the clay tile roofs assist in keeping the home cool during the hot summer months. Spanish and Mediterranean houses are usually finished with a stucco finish (usually white or pastel in color) on the exterior and often feature architectural accents such as exposed wood beams and arched openings in the stucco. This style is similar to the Southwest style of architecture, which originated in the Southwest areas of the country.
These house designs make gorgeous permanent residences as well as beloved vacation homes. Whether you’re building a new home on the West Coast or the shores of Miami, we guarantee you’ll find a house plan you’ll love right here.
