This beautiful Mediterranean style home, built in 1928, was recently listed for sale in Highland Park. So, what are the features that make this a Mediterranean-style home?
White stucco or painted brick and terracotta roof tiles define Mediterranean style.
Also common are curving lines which we see both on the outside walls and inside creating soft rooms and lovely arches.
Terracotta tile is a common floor material used.
Hand-painted tiles are frequently used. Here they decorate this fountain.
Some of the ceilings in this home have been painted to lighten the spaces, but others retain the dark wood finish.
Decorative wrought iron is found on the stairs and on light fixtures.
It is wonderful to see so much of the original Mediterranean-influenced style and materials retained in this home.
Enjoy your week!
