European House Plans
About European House Plans & European Home Floor Plans...
European house plans are generally one or two story houses that become a reminder of the splendid style and history of the Old World while offering a touch of the elegance and refined style common today. Typically grand in size and well-suited for large lots, European home plans feature an exterior finish of two or more materials such as brick, siding, stone or stucco. Varied rooflines deliver the look and feel of a castle while rich ornamental detailing adds a touch of beauty and splendor to most European house plans. There are many noticeable exterior characteristics of European home plans including copper roofs atop bayed windows, stylish keystones, and quoins accenting the corners. Some Craftsman home plans, Luxury designs and Mediterranean floor plans share common features with European house plans.
European home designs are often recognizable by their swooping rooflines with flared corners at the eaves. Also, their steep rooflines provide space for the second story “in the roof” adding living space that is not easily seen from the exterior. This additional space could be a full second story or just a bonus room. Often, the floor plan is as grand as the home appears from the exterior. With European floor plans, rooms of large proportions and volume ceilings in some or most of the gathering areas lend to spaciousness. Though most are generously sized homes, small homes can offer some of the same notable design elements. Displaying many European influences, these Old World designs encompass a wide variety of home plan styles including, Tudor style home plans, English style houses, Mediterranean designs, Spanish style homes, Italian floor plans and French home plans. Ranging in size from simple chalets to sprawling chateau floor plans, most European style house plans enjoy some similar characteristics. Because of the numerous design styles and exterior appearances, these floor plans are widely found throughout all regions of the United States and Canada. Large or small, European designs reveal a masterful blend of comfort and refinement making them popular among a wide range of home buyers. Some of our European house plans are displayed in our Photo Collection.
