The Benefits of Building a Mediterranean Home in Palm Beach

The Mediterranean-style home came about in the 1920s which resembles the aesthetic of Mediterranean villas on the seaside. This is a well-matched style to the Palm Beach area on the Gold Coast, perfect for the sunny, warmer climate and a laid-back, beach lifestyle atmosphere.

Characteristics of a Mediterranean style home

Timeless simplicity with a touch of elegance is a key characteristic of the Mediterranean-style home. You will find that spaces are themed with the beauty of nature, using warm tones, brightness, and featuring indoor-outdoor living. Building with the Mediterranean style allows you to enjoy a home that is always on-trend and admired by all.

Here are some common features to include in your Mediterranean home:

  • natural featured stone exteriors

  • round windows
  • curved external walls
  • curves staircases internally
  • internal and external archways
  • planter boxes installed at the front of the house
  • draping vines over the building
