Mediterranean Revival architecture in Florida

Florida homes in the Mediterranean Revival style owe much to Addison Mizner, who built many of these homes in the Palm Beach area.  A real estate agent in Miami, Ines Hegedus-Garcia, who also has a degree in architecture, explains the Mediterranean Revival style in her blog.

Mediterranean Revival in Old Pasadena neighborhood of St Petersburg Florida This Mediterranean Revival style home is in the Old Pasadena neighborhood of St Petersburg Florida. Many of the characteristics that Ines discusses are found in this home: Cuban clay barrel tile, arched windows, rough textured stucco walls, chimney; rooms with exposed beams, informal and asymmetrical arrangement of rooms. This is a Schooley style home with the main portion built in the 1920s and an addition built in the 2000s that reflects the original character of the home. With nearly 6,000 sq ft of living area on just over 1/2 acre, this home can be purchased for $899,000 which is considerably less than the restoration cost of the home.

    Gorgeous home! thanks so much for the link back to Miamism – you know architecturally relevant real estate is my passion – anyone would be lucky to get their hands on a home like this one.
