Austin Mediterranean-Style Homes for Sale

History of Mediterranean Design

An assortment of influences from Mediterranean countries, particularly France, Italy and Spain can be found in the architectural style and design that today carries the same name. This style of architecture in North America was extremely popular from the 1920s-1940s, emulating haciendas in the Spanish New World with red-clay tiled roofs, verandas and arches, and unsmoothed plaster to resemble the adobe design. The Mediterranean-style of architecture was popular in California, Florida, and Texas — states with many Spanish histories.

Over time, embellishments from other European countries such as Greece and the Balkans could be found in the houses. Asian flourishes from Cypress, Lebanon, and Turkey joined North African countries like Morocco and Tunisia in the fusion. To this day, many stylish and ornate homes that combine design elements from any of those countries are categorized as Mediterranean homes due to the blended cultural influences from those regions.
