European and French Country Floor Plan Features

What makes a European or French Country floor plan special?

European floor plans can refer to a range of new home styles based in particular geographic locations, including English Tudor, French Country, and Dutch Gable. European floor plans can also indicate a particular time period, including Georgian, Victorian, and Greek Revival.

French country homes often feature:

 - Exteriors made of brick, stone, or stucco (with emphasis on masonry designs) 

 - Large roof lines

 - Balconies (to create a French 'chateau' aura)

 - Interior design aspects reminiscent of the French countryside

Because of their special features, sweeping facades, and square footage, many European and French Country homes are a popular choice in luxury floor plan designs.
