French Eclectic Style Home Plans
The French Eclectic style was popular in both the United States and Los Angeles beginning in the 1920’s and continuing through the 1940’s. The French Eclectic style is characterized by tall, steeply pitched, hipped, or cross-gabled roofs, stucco or stone wall surfaces with minimal trim details, and often is elaborated with flared eaves, conical towers, and occasionally half-timbering.
The French Eclectic style became popular as on of the Eclectic Revival styles of the 1920’s, and was intended to mimic the design of small manor houses and farm houses of northwest France. It is likely that part of the popularity of this design is attributable to the many American servicemen stationed in France during World War I. The French Eclectic style can often be found mixed with the English Cottage, English Revival, or Tudor Revival styles.
The front elevations of our French Eclectic styled home plans reflect these time-honored elements, while the floor plans incorporate modern design features and amenities for the way we live. Each of our home plans can be customized to your specific needs.
