You are seriously making me homesick for California.

There are zero houses around here that look like that. I may be in love with house #1.

I am TOTALLY IN LOVE with Spanish architecture.

Mish - These houses were *probably* all built in the 1920s or so. Considering there are very few Spanish settlers in your part of the world, I'm not surprised that you don't have houses that look like this. Number 1 is fantastic, but I'm also in love with #3.

If you look carefully at #4, you'll see it's a duplex (two addresses on the front you might have to click to enlarge to see that).

I am with you on #3. The landscaping is very professional. It allows light and privacy.

Living in Southern CA now, I have really come to love actual vintage Spanish revival and the like.
It's come up close to my love for the Craftsmen designs (which, of course, here in Southern CA is often built in the same era).
In the Bay Area, most Spanish style homes are hideous McMansions and the like.
Thankfully, we have the real thing here..
