Just as the name suggests, the famous French Countryside style homes originated in the northern and southern, rural French country; but they remain a popular style for home owners and designers of today. French Countryside style homes are cozy and charming, and the perfect combination of traditional luxury and innovation. This home design fits in well both on large properties and in upscale suburban neighborhoods with its style and elegance.
At Hart Homes, we believe your home should be comfortable, functional, and designed exactly as you desire. Our French Countryside home construction company in South Florida will work with you and craft your new home to exceed your expectations.
Essential elements of a French countryside home combine to create an unmatched charm. The look is always rustic, with a warm and casual feel. The most common architectural features of this style include two stories, real stone walls and floors, distressed wood ceiling beams and timbers, with deeply cut and narrow windows. Pointed towers, wide windows, high balconies, and a stone walkway best represent the whimsical exterior that this home creates.
While each French country style home is unique, most homes of this kind exhibit a stately and formal feel, with an overall square, symmetrical shape. Balance is key. Unlike the style of Victorian homes, French Countryside homes usually display a balance in windows, and a steep hipped roof. The windows often display vintage shutters to create a cottage-like feel. However, the roof of this home usually has multiple elements that create plenty of visual focal points.
The most common exterior for such homes is stone, but brick and stucco are sometimes used as well. Stone walkways through wide courtyards lead to doorways that are often encircled underneath carefully crafted rustic arches, with decorative features. Porches on these homes are known for displaying substantial balustrades. To perfectly emulate the area in which this style originated, these homes are usually warm colors like off white, taupe, gray, blue gray, white, yellow, and light blue. Although a traditional home of this style is usually large, they can be designed in a one-story, more compact plan that best suits your needs.
