French Country Floor Plans

May be Customized for a Smaller Cottage or Large Country Estate


The French Country style of home draws from both the smaller country cottages and large rural estates of France. Imagine quaint details and natural materials paired with masterful gardens for a truly beautiful Old World home. The style is characterized by a steep and symmetrical hipped roof, often with flared eaves, that may be covered with wood shingles or slate. Turrets, finials and shaped chimneys add interest to the roofline. Build this home as a country residence or right in the middle of town.

This plan utilizes a myriad of stylistic elements to portray a fanciful and stately home. Masonry is most often used for exterior materials, often with a mixture or brick, stucco and stone. Windows in French Country homes are a mixture of arched and rectangular openings, with decorative window elements such as quoins or shutters and may be double hung sash or casement windows. The entryway is marked by a covered, arched portico that will draw guests into your unique home.

The floor plan of your French Country home may be formal or informal, depending on your lifestyle. Open up the plan with a large great room and fireplace that connects to the kitchen. Imagine a beautiful French kitchen with distressed wood beams, stone countertops, and a patterned tile floor. Provide for plenty of outdoor living space, as gardens are essential to any European home. Most French Country house plans are two stories and may even have flex space available in the attic due to the steeply pitched roof. Plan for the bedrooms to be upstairs and place a guest retreat or playroom in the attic.
