As you can see form the headline we are going out to find stucco houses. You may ask the question, “What’s so special about stucco houses?” The answer is Stucco houses are very much in the minority here in central Texas. Most of the homes are built of brick and stone. The style is most commonly called Hill Country Architecture. Stucco houses on the other hand come in many styles, so today we are going to have a look at a few. Of course, will need to have brunch which will be catered from Forthright Cafe in Austin. Our entertainment is Bette Midler.

So let’s get going.
This first house is one The Producer would love to have. It is run down a little but looks like it has great bones. All stucco Hacienda style.
This house we have seen before. I decided to include it as an example of Modern style with stucco and stone. Also, the paint color is always a hoot.
Another Hacienda style.
This one is interesting and it can be a “your guess” as to style for this all stucco home.
Hacienda style again with modern touches.
A classic Hacienda style.
I couldn’t help myself on this one. No stucco, no stone, and quite unusual. This house is being renovated. Notice the LED lights. We wonder about the color choices. The two bump-outs are just sides and not painted yet. We are betting they are going with the gutter color.
A classic Hacienda style.
An example of the Italian Renaissance Revival.
Mediterranean style with large Magnolia in front.

Well, that completes the tour. Have some food and listen to the music. I hope you have a great week.
