Territorial-Style Homes For Sale

Territorial-style homes for sale in Tucson are prevalent and available throughout the entire city. Territorial homes are typically constructed using slump block concrete, and most were built from the 1960s to the 1990s. The style originated while the area was still known as the New Mexico Territory of the United States. The Spanish-inspired home was the standard during those times, but some homeowners wanted something slightly different, so they designed a home that was a bit more box-like, allowing for faster build times and more space.

Another important concept evolved during the mid to late 1800s when Tucson transitioned from a Mexican to an American town. Spanish residential developments were usually row houses, with each home on the edge of a block. In the middle, neighbors shared a common courtyard. This was the traditional way to build housing in Spanish cities at the time. American (or British to be more exact) developments were different in that each family would own their own home and land, not sharing anything (other than perhaps a well) with the surrounding neighbors. This led to homes that were not connected to each other anymore. The end result of merging Spanish-style architecture with American building styles were the territorial-style and bungalow-style homes.

Common Characteristics Of Tucson Territorial Homes

Slump Block

Slump BlockTerritorial homes have been around Tucson since the mid-1800s, but most of the ones currently on the Tucson real estate market were built from 1960s to the early 1990s. Those homes are almost always built from a certain kind of concrete. Slump block is wider than a traditional brick, but about the same height. The block has a distinctive look because it is removed from its mold prior to being completely set, giving it a slightly "slumped" appearance.

 

Spanish Heritage

Spanish HeritageTerritorial houses retain a lot of their Spanish heritage including arches, wrought iron (especially over the windows), courtyards in the front of the homes, and in many cases, some decorative tile work.

 

Flat Roofs

Flat RoofAlmost all territorial homes have a flat roof. They also have scuppers, or drainage outlets, to direct the water away from the house. These look a little different from the Spanish home's canales but serve the same purpose.

 

Cornices

CorniceUsually made from brick, these cornices are a hallmark of high-end territorial design. Cornices don't serve any function, but they do add decoration to what some people view as an overly simplistic, boring exterior.

 

Rectangular

RectangularTerritorial homes are almost always rectangles. Some have had additions built over the years, but typically these homes are twice as wide as they are deep.
