What is a Spanish Style Home?
The Spanish style of home is popular throughout the United States, though it's particularly popular in warmer climates like we have here in Dallas, TX. These Spanish revival homes are easily recognizable due to their thick walls, white stucco and adobe brickwork. True Spanish Colonial homes don't have glass windows. Originally, they relied on small holes in the walls for light and air that would be covered with wood shutters during the cold or in storms. Only homes built from the 1600s to the mid 1800s are true Spanish Colonial homes. Newer builds that emulate a Spanish architectural style are known as Spanish Revival Style Houses. The high humidity and tempatures in Dallas will likely have you looking for a home with glass windows and a strong HVAC, so you will be looking at a Spanish Revival style home.
