Top definition
Combination of swanky and hacienda. This term was coined in Houston Texas by Maxine Mesinger, a writer for the Houston Chronicle, and chiefly refers to higher-end or unique Southern architecture of any era. Swankienda is a compliment, not a put-down, and shouldn't be confused with the term McMansion.

Jane: "Definitely! It's going to be in the backyard of her fabulous mid-century-mod swankienda ."
