The timeless design of French Country house plans conveys a sense of casual elegance. The combination of a formal symmetrical facade, as well as the use of natural elements and soft colors creates a refined, yet rustic home with striking curb appeal.
Rooted in France’s rural countryside, the term “French Country” refers to a combination of styles from the sunny South of France to the cool Northern regions. From chateaus to farmhouses these home designs are united by elements such as steep rooflines with clay tile roofs, and exteriors such as stone or brick masonry, stucco, or a combination of finishes.
To give that distinctly French feel, balconies are often used in this home design. This is one such feature in Sater Design’s traditional French Country beauty, the “Avignon”.
This courtyard home plan features a central loggia with a fountain pool with open connections to the main living areas of the home, as well as to the master suite. The style of this home plan demonstrates “Old World” charm that is enhanced with arched windows, shutters, wrought metal railings, and copper accents.
If your style is more contemporary, a more modern version of French Country house plans in the Sater Design Collection is our newest design, the “Belcourt”.
