Beverly Hills Luxury Home Architecture
Beverly Hills is known for its elegant and stunning architecture. Here are some of the most popular home styles.
This architectural style encompasses Tudor, French Normandy, and English Cottage. You'll see many picturesque storybook homes in Beverly Hills mixed with grand French chateaus and Tudor-style mansions. Homeowners who want to feel like they're living in the idyllic European countryside can't resist the allure of a traditional English Cottage or opulent Tudor home. Reminiscent of a fairytale, this style is known for window boxes, arched doorways, and elements of romance.
Spanish Colonial Revival
This timeless Southern California classic is characterized by lush courtyards, patios, balconies, dark woodwork, ironwork, and arched passageways. It's a simple yet refined style that rose to fame in the early 1900s. Architects like Carleton Winslow and Bertram Goodhue popularized the style. Beverly Hills houses feature some of the most beautiful examples in the world, with stucco walls and intricate tiles at the forefront of the Mission Revival.
Contemporary homes are all the rage right now in Beverly Hills. These boxy-shaped houses work well for those who want to see sweeping views of the surrounding landscape or panoramic ocean vistas. New construction often incorporates vanishing glass walls and open layouts to integrate the inside and the outdoors. Most contemporary architecture utilizes sleek lines, irregular shapes, sharp edges, and dramatic ceilings. Modern builds are considered the statement of the 21st century, and there is no single type as architects can experiment in everything from high-tech architecture to postmodernism.
There are many different kinds of Period Revival architecture including, Beau Arts, Gothic Revival, Greek, and Roman. In Beverly Hills, Tuscan, Greek, and Tuscan Villas tend to be the most prominent. Tuscan-style homes borrow attributes from the Mediterranean with dramatic entryways, stone flooring, and ornamental detailing. This style uses limestone, marble, and terracotta for construction and effortlessly blends modernity with classic Old World European elements.
When referring to traditional architecture, it generally means Neo-Classical, Georgian, Neo-Colonial, American Colonial, and Cape Cod styles. Some of the wealthiest neighborhoods in Los Angeles are known for traditional architecture as it combines elements of grandeur with a subtle, sometimes understated design. Often these homes have large, spacious yards with swimming pools and open floor plans inside.
