Country French homes, sometimes referred to as french country style homes, originated in the rural french countryside. The french country style was brought to America in the late 19th century.
The home plans range from small cottages to estate size home plans. Country french home plans are characterized by the use of brick, stone and stucco with steep roof lines and hip roofs. On occasion porches will have stucco arches or brick and the windows will be eyebrowed. The exterior of french country homes have widespread appeal across the country.
The interior of a country french home will have a refined rustic feel. Foyers will have arched openings and a mixture of wood beams and arches will be used throughout the home. The floor plans are usually very open and give the interior of the homes a very spacious feeling. Details with wrought iron, tile and appropriate furniture will give you the feeling you are sitting on the French Countryside in your new home.
