European and French Country style homes have magnificent façades that are suitable mainly for large plots of land. They offer a touch of elegance and are a nice reminder of the beautiful themes and history of the Old Country architectural styles.
There are many subsets of European home styles as there are countries in Europe, and what these styles offer to the modern homeowner is a touch of classiness, refined style, and large proportions.
