Crystal Cove's Architectural Styles
High along the bluffs above the Pacific Ocean, some of the most breathtaking custom homesites ever offered along the California coast are still available for purchase at Crystal Cove. Luxury custom home sites average 27,000 square feet. After purchasing your Custom homesite, you will work closely with a Community Liaison to select one of the four available architectural styles:
Santa Barbara: The Santa Barbara style, as the name suggests, emerged in Santa Barbara in the 1920s and 30s when the community established itself as a prestigious winter resort attracting wealthy residents from the East and Midwest. It is an eclectic mix of Mediterranean styles with fragments of Spanish, North African and Mexican architecture unified by the use of clay tile roofs, expansive stucco walls and deeply recessed windows. These were added to capture ocean views and to complete the overall romantic effect of the architecture.
Tuscan: The Tuscan country house is distinguished by the use of Roman pan clay roof tiles and exposed heavy timber rafter tails with decorative end cuts. Shutters tended more often than not to be louvered and painted a deep Tuscan red or dark green. Exterior walls were constructed of stone, sometimes interspersed with brick at door and window openings and building corners. Exterior walls, if plastered, tended to be warm, and sometimes color, earth tones.
Provence: The country house of Provence, France, is a style derived from medieval country homes. The geometry of the architecture is simple. Exterior walls were constructed of local fieldstone with dressed stones at door and window openings and building corners. The walls may or may not have been plastered. Plaster colors tended to warm, and sometimes colorful, earth tones. Windows were frequently accented with colorful solid board shutters. The roofs were shallow pitched and constructed of earthen colored clay tile with the characteristic stacked-tile Genoise eave.
Northern Italian: The Northern Italian architecture, sometimes described as “Italianate,” depicts the generic style of the country villas scattered throughout Northern Italy. Italianate architecture is characterized as formal but simplistic in form, a departure from the Tuscany style of a rustic country home. Red-tile roofs, walls of stucco or stone covered with stucco, symmetrical with regard to massing and window/door placement, low pitched roofs adorned with frieze cornices and brackets, and spacious interiors, characterize the style.
