Brick, Stone, & Stucco Exteriors
Homes built with a European influence often feature a combination of brick, stone, and stucco exteriors to create a luxurious, complementary look with charming curb appeal.
European homes often feature intricate detailing on the exterior such as columns, railings, gables, and more. This helps harness the Old World style and bring some added curb appeal to your home!
Varied Roof Lines
You may find that European house plans include multiple prominent roof lines, adding to their time-honored appeal.
The front entry in many European style houses announces, “You’ve arrived!” Oversized doors…arches… lots of glass…the entryways are often a main focal point.
With European style home design, the inside of your home will be just as stunning as the outside. Here are a few common interior features seen in European home plans!
Welcome guests into your home with a large, inviting foyer! This common European home feature provides a great transition space from the outdoors to the inside of your home. Foyers are often spacious and elegant, offering attractive, intriguing vistas through the home.
Especially in larger European style home designs, you may find prominent, open staircases leading up to the upper level. They are typically placed near the foyer, adding elegance right when you walk in!
Many European designs feature high ceilings to make your home feel larger. Not only do they look amazing, but they also help draw natural light into any room.
A cue borrowed from fine historic residences throughout Europe, interior columns are not only aesthetic, but oftentimes structural as well. In today’s more open layouts, these columns also add a sense of definition to rooms.
