Architectural Style - Neo-Mediterranean

Neo-Mediterranean is a Neoeclectic style that mixes aspects of Spanish, Italian, Greek, and Moroccan architecture with contemporary North American ideas. Neo-Mediterranean houses are often called Mediterranean or Spanish Style. Some common features of a Neo-Mediterranean house are a low-pitched roof, red roof tiles, stucco siding, arches above doors, windows, or porches, and heavy carved wooden doors.

A Neo-Mediterranean home may resemble the Spanish Revival style, but these homes are not recreations of Spanish Colonial architecture per say. If it weren't for the romantic decorative details, a Neo-Mediterranean home would likely to resemble a Ranch Style house or Raised Ranch style home. There are prime examples of Neo-Mediterranean style architecture in Twin Cities communities.
