FRENCH COUNTRY VILLA



While taking my dogs on their morning stroll, it is hard to not just stop and stare at all of the lovely details on this French Country Style Chateau. One of the perks of living in the Silicon Valley is there is such a diversity of people from different countries and many build their houses to remind them of home.


The French Country style seems to be on the up swing in design these days! Rooted in the rural French countryside, this style includes both estate like chateaus as well as modest farmhouse designs. Design elements such as curved arches, soft lines, stonework & stucco are very typical for this style. The entrance is prominently placed front & center with 2 protuding windows on either side. Very often you will find full length plantation shutters that add the perfect amount of charming detail. The subdued elegance of this style is what makes it one of my favorites!
