Spanish-style architecture has long been a feature of many homes in the Beverly Hills real estate market. Featuring stucco walls, arched doorways and windows, beautiful tile work throughout, and red-tiled roofs, Spanish-style homes can be found all over Southern California, but Beverly Hills and surrounding markets offer some of the most gorgeous examples anywhere in the world.
The Mission Revival style is especially popular in this area. This style was modeled after the California missions that were built in the 18th century, borrowing elements such as bell towers, recessed front porches, and roof parapets. One iconic example of a Mission-style structure in Beverly Hills is the The Beverly Hills Hotel with its large “bell tower”.
Diane Keaton’s one-time Spanish Colonial Revival home was featured in Architectural Digest. Readers caught a glimpse of what made her home worthy of the $11.9 price tag she would assign to it when she sold in 2009. The home features gorgeous, rich, dark woodwork, warm lanterns, lush courtyards, and an abundance of arched passageways.
