It’s Love: Tower District Architecture

 I’ve been daydreaming {a lot} about buying a house. This is my Spanish Villa.

In high school I was a pretty angsty teenager {hard to imagine…I know}. I was a good kid, but a total brat sometimes…and I was convinced that we lived in the “ghetto” because we didn’t live in the picturesque Northwest Fresno.

Now, fresh back from a trip home, I am stunned by the gorgeous architecture {and the prices} in the historic district that my parents still live in. Right in between old fig garden and the tower district, this area offers everything from Victorians to Spanish to Craftsmen homes. A few samples, for your enjoyment.


Sig Levy Home, 1934, Spanish Revival with Monterey influence


Ackerman Home, 1915, Craftsman Bungalow {my favorite!}


Cearley Home, 1919, Picturesque Cottage, English influence


Jones Home, Colonial Revival

I want one!
