East Bay Spanish Colonials

In the past week we have seen a number of interesting Spanish colonial revival homes hit the market across the East Bay, so today we thought we would take the unusual step of writing a post about all of them. The Spanish colonial is perhaps the most widely seen form of period revival architecture in California. The Hispanic heritage of the state has always been a particularly fertile ground for those looking for a romantic past to recreate.

Even so, architects were able to put their own stamp on the familiar form as we can see in the four examples featured here today. Each one has its own unique features and interesting spaces while still retaining the recognizable elements that characterize the Spanish colonial idiom.
