Home plans in this collection are usually identified by their steeply-pitched slate roofs with accentuating dormers. French Country homes will often have stone-accented facades with rusticated shutters and slump-arched openings. They may have square columns more often than round and may feature copper accents such as dormer roofs, shed roofs and trim elements. French Country house plans will also incorporate large porches, both front and rear, as found in many country manor homes in France. Of course our Sater Design home plans feature all the charm and style of an age-old French home, but offer all the modern amenities and features. Such features include: open flowing floor plans, lots of natural light, richly detailed ceilings, modern kitchens, luxurious baths, and energy-efficient construction. Do not forget to check out our other European-style house plans for designs that mimic traditional Tuscan, Mediterranean, Spanish, and English architecture.
