Mediterranean Revival

Mediterranean Revival

An imprecise term (not a Revival architecture, as the name implies) for a mixture of Mission Revival, Italian Villa style, and Spanish Colonial Revival, particularly in the latter part of the 20th century; usually applied to a one- or two-story house with a red tile roof and stuccoed walls, usually having rounded or arched windows; occasionally referred to as Mediterranean style.
