Thanks JingobyGee for the wonderful photo.
If I stay close to home I can see a zillion Tudors--all similar but no two alike. If I go south, I can wander through Virginia Highland and ooh and aah over the great old Bungalows. And if I head kinda west there's a real different combination of styles.
One style I've started to appreciate and admire is sometimes called Spanish Revival or maybe Mediterranean or my personal favorite label: Spanish Eclectic.
Here's a really fine one from around 1930.
Please excuse my photo angles. I was already worried about the neighbors calling the cops with me snapping pictures so I didn't dare make more of a spectacle of myself and try to get a better view.
About.com has a nice explanation of the style
from a book, A Field Guide to American Houses, by Virginia and Lee McAlester.
I think I might need a copy of this book.
