Le Beau Manoir

Le Beau Manoir French Country House Plan
Le Beau Manoir (Beautiful House)


French architecture has an elegant simplicity that is carried through every detail.  The steep 16/12 pitch to the roofs with their graceful kick-out at the base, the flat arched curved top of the tall casement windows, and details such as copper finials and clay chimney pots make this style distinctive. 


Our Le Beau Manoir attempts to emulate the same design elegance and simplicity of the traditional French Country cottage, while offering surprising elegance inside with a plan designed around today's lifestyles.



Great Plan for Entertaining!

A small, welcoming vestibule greets visitors to the Beau Manoir before opening into a lovely stone floored foyer.  Two steps below to the left, a stately great room with fireplace flanked by a wall of book shelves looks through a pair of French doors out to the stone terrace beyond.  The high, vaulted ceiling is punctuated by tall dormers with leaded glass that allow the sun to stream in below.  Rough-hewn rafters add character and scale. 


To the right of the foyer, the luxurious master suite features its own fireplace, built in shelving, his and her's walk in closets and a sumptuous bath with tub and large shower.  Its location to the front of the house, off the foyer assure privacy and quiet.  The dining room opens two steps above the great room and is open to both it and the generous kitchen with entertaining island, eating bar and fireplace!

The stairs wind to the second floor where they overlook the foyer below with a vaulted ceiling and small dormer.  The two matching bedrooms above share a bath with private sinks and generous walk-in closets.  Each has a large bay of casement windows at one end and nine foot ceilings.
