In honor of the 150th anniversary of Cinco de Mayo, The House Designers is showcasing house plans that were inspired by the rich culture of Mexico. You’ll find homes designed in Adobe (also called Santa Fe and Pueblo house plans) with large open courtyards that are great for entertaining and Southwestern/Spanish styling featuring stucco, stone and clay exteriors with red tile roofs, exposed beams and arched openings. The interior of these homes typically feature sun-drenched colors (reds and oranges), stone accents, wood-beamed ceilings, bright tiles, iron and copper decorative accents like clavos, which is Spanish for decorative nails to capture the rich, hand-crafted details of Mexican architecture.
Here are some of our most popular Mexican-influenced homes from our collection of Southwestern and Spanish house plans
This striking Spanish home features a courtyard with grand rotunda entrance. The foyer is flanked by a dining room and den that leads into a circular great room with a 14’ foot viga ceiling and large bay windows that overlook the outdoor patio. The master suite enjoys complete privacy in the front right wing of the home while the rear left wing features three bedrooms and a casita, which shares access to the two covered patios. Tucked behind the side entry three-car garage is a kitchen with center island and circular nook with large bay windows.
This one-story home plan features all the traditional styling of an Adobe/Sante Fe home including a flat roof, clay exterior with large timber beams that poke through the exterior to give the home its distinctive look.
The Coronado House Plan is one of our newest Spanish house plans featuring Old World craftsmanship that starts from the moment that you walk up to the private courtyard and rotunda. Once inside there’s a vaulted great room and gourmet kitchen (perfect for making some spicy Mexican dishes) with a large corner pantry and cozy morning room. There’s a private flexible space that can be used as a den or office. Three bedrooms including the large master suite with his and her closets occupy the right wing of the home.
