Spanish Revival, huh?
Let’s take a look at what that is:
The Spanish Colonial Revival Style was a United States architectural movement that came about in the early 20th century, starting in Florida as a regional expression related to both history and environment. The Spanish Colonial Revival Style was also influenced by the opening of the Panama Canal and the overwhelming success of the novel Ramona. Based on the Spanish Colonial style architecture that dominated in the early Spanish colonies of both North and South America, Spanish Colonial Revival updated these forms for a new century.
Early champions of the Spanish Colonial Revival include Orlando, Florida architect Frederick H. Trimble whose Farmer’s Bank in Vero Beach predates the Panama-California Exposition of 1915 in San Diego. The San Diego Fair has been credited with drawing national attention to the aesthetic potential of this style.
The movement enjoyed its greatest popularity between 1915 and 1931 and was most often exhibited in single-level detached houses.
Wow! Nothing could possibly be more Spanish that houses built in the Spanish Revival style. After you buy this house, you should have a house warming party where you serve your guests authentic Japanese California rolls for appetizers, followed with an entree of authentic Spaghetti with meatballs, wrapped up with a dessert of authentic Chinese fortune cookies.
And clearly this is valuable – just 6 days listed and it is already pending. Congrats San Carlos! You’re definitely Real Bay Area!
