01. Curves and arches

Here, curved steps lead to a graceful archway to the front door.

02. Very few and very small windows

Having only a few small windows allows a cool breeze into the house, but doesn’t allow direct sunlight, which can make the space warmer. Traditional Spanish Colonial homes typically didn’t have glass window panes – opting for iron bars instead – but today, it would be rare to find a home without glass panes.

03. White exterior walls

This characteristic is attractive and key in keeping prices affordable, thanks to stucco applied over adobe walls. Most are painted white – a very light neutral color to reflect the sun.

04. Little or no decoration

Traditionally, Spanish Colonial homes have a simple, white exterior with very little decoration.

05. A courtyard

Exterior or interior, most Spanish Colonial homes have some kind of courtyard. Traditionally, courtyards were placed in the center of the home, so its inhabitants could cook inside or outside and release some of the heat produced by cooking.

06. Arcades and archway

07.Terracotta tiles, clay tiles or roof

The red, hot tone, earth tone color of clay tiles tops give the homes a warm, earthy, rustic look. Often the roof lines are multi-level to create interest and asymmetry. This home features a turret.

08.  Balconies

These were designed so that you could step out above to enjoy the fresh air and views.

09. Red clay tiles or roof

One of the most distinguishing characteristics of Spanish Colonial style is the low-pitched roof made with red, clay tiles. In some regions, Spanish Colonial roofs are completely flat, while others are slightly pitched—but all use the same distinctive tile.

10. Ornamental iron work

Finely crafted wrought iron work graces stair railings, gates, window grilles and lanterns. Here is a close up of a window grille.
