French Country Home Plans

What type of lifestyle do you picture for your newly built home? Do you picture yourself in a cozy cottage with architectural elements inspired by the villas of France? If so, then French country house plans may be the right fit for you. These home plans, also called Acadian house plans, feature delicate architecture mixed with modern touches to create a unique home that meets all of your needs and aesthetic desires. Donald A. Gardner Architects has a number of French country home plans from which you can choose, allowing you to make your dream home a reality.

What Are French-Style House Plans?

The French country home is reminiscent of the rural French countryside. French country floor plans often employ brick, stone or stucco exteriors, and large rooflines, sometimes with balconies. At Donald A. Gardner Architects, our French country home plans use the style and history of the French countryside to create a delightful collection of choices. Our French country home plans vary from simple to extravagant. Take a look at our plan for The Lucerne -- it is stylish and practical, and the modern layout exudes warmth the minute you see the home. Stone, stucco and clipped gables outside give it a cottage feel, while tray and coffered ceilings, and abundant windows, open the interior of the house plan. It measures a cozy 1,828 square feet. Country French house plans can be spacious as well. Consider The Carrera, which measures 4,221 square feet and has five bedrooms and four bathrooms. This two-story French-style home has gabled roofs, a large arched portico and a stunning staircase in the front entryway.
