  • Spanish/Mediterranean style home

The most common architectural style found in not just central Florida, but all over the state, is the Spanish/Mediterranean style. With tiled roofs, ironwork, stucco finishes and terra cotta ornaments, these homes are easily recognizable, and several communities have houses built in only this style.

  • Contemporary style home

Contemporary style homes are growing more and more popular in central Florida, where home building takes architectural designs from these kinds of homes. For example, high ceilings, stucco finishes, concrete block exterior frames, and open floor plans can be found in many Central Florida homes which are considered contemporary.

  • Prairie and ranch style home

Prairie style homes and ranch-style homes are also very popular Florida lifestyle homes. Prairie style homes were made famous by an architect named Frank Lloyd, and its distinctive features include low pitched, overhanging roof, grouped windows, and a secluded entrance. These features made it seem like prairie style homes naturally grow out of the ground they stand on.

From this style, the ranch-style home was later developed, which are homes with one floor, an open floor plan and usually, an attached screened porch.

  • Custom home

A custom home is basically a house that can be built in any style or a combination of styles. It depends on the owner of the house and the custom home builder, both of whom decide together the best architectural designs to follow. In most cases, the custom home builder has a “stock” floor plan, which is then customized according to the homeowner’s wishes.

Central Florida is home to a variety of architectural designs, where you are sure to find a place that suits your needs and taste whether you have a large family or a small family, or you are a couple or a working professional. If not, you can always call a new home builder and build the custom home of your dreams.
