Spanish Mediterranean homes usually have low-pitched roofs, white stucco walls, and rounded windows and doors. Scalloped windows and balconies with elaborate grills are easy to identify from far away.

Pros
A lot of Spanish Mediterranean homes are single story with porches, courtyards and patios. These features help soften the transition from inside to outside, creating a casual, airy atmosphere – perfect for hosting parties, or for those who love to spend lots of time outside.

Cons
Although the exterior stucco walls are quite beautiful, the stucco will need to be carefully maintained to help avoid cracks and crumbling in wetter climates.

Low-pitched Tiled Roofs

Low-pitched tiled roofs give Spanish eclectic homes more sleek roof lines, allowing them to blend with the environment.

White Stucco Walls

Most Spanish eclectics have fresh white paint that covers a rough, textured stucco. This is a hand-applied mix of cement, water and sand or lime. The result is a beautiful, textured, aged-looking surface.

Rounded Windows and Doors

Rounded windows and doors on Spanish eclectics provide these colorful homes with plenty of character.

Scalloped Windows

With their decorative, ornate scrollwork, scalloped windows give Spanish eclectics a classic, refined look.
