It’s hard to beat a Mediterranean home for sheer drama and curb appeal. Here are a few of our favorites. Outside, buyers will delight in romantic tile roofs, stucco, and gorgeous arches. Inside, utterly contemporary layouts seal the deal.

Smart Contemporary Layout


Just 42 feet wide, this impressive-looking family home has a smart layout that maximizes space. A two-sided fireplace warms both the dining room and the all-purpose great room. Buyers will love the kitchen’s openness and space at the wide island. The first-floor master suite is great for aging in place, and features a deluxe bathroom and two walk-in closets. Upstairs, three more bedrooms access an additional living space/den. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Striking Style at 1,826 Sq. Ft.


With alluring detail and a striking Spanish tile roof, this historic home makes quite an impression. Enter under a portico to find the great room, bathed in natural light. To the right, a sunny dining area flows into the angled serving-bar kitchen for ultimate convenience. The first-floor master suite includes a box-bay sitting area and a splendid bath with a spa tub. Upstairs, two bedrooms share a full bath. Bonus space above the garage can be used as a study, game room, or home gym. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Splendid Turret


Dramatic style adorns practical spaces in this great new plan. The scene-stealing turret creates quite an entrance. Inside, head right to the study/bedroom 2, or left to arrive at the heart of the house. The spacious gathering room is served by the kitchen’s snack bar, and also opens to the back porch. A private foyer buffers the master suite from public view. A third bedroom near the front uses a full hall bath. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Triple Arches and Efficient Luxury


Striking columned arches add gorgeous Mediterranean style to this open-layout home from the Energy Saver Plus Home Plans Collection. Amenities abound, including decorative ceiling treatments, lighted niches, and a luxurious master suite with double walk-in closets. Two additional bedrooms, one of which opens to the rear lanai, share a bath with dual vanities. Windows wrap along the back of the home, bathing the interior in sunlight and fresh air.
