La Maison sur Loire 2

La Maison sur Loire French Country House Plan
La Maison sur Loire 2


ur La Maison sur Loire 2 evokes the same formal style as La Maison sur Loire, reminiscent of the Loire Region of France with its main house and charming additions.  In fact, little about the house has changed except for some interior modifications that we made to slightly increase the size of some rooms and tighten the footprint by pulling the garage up tighter to the house for more restrictive lots that have less depth from front to back.  This plan is 57 feet deep (including steps).  A lot of house for a shallow lot!


The 4,099 square foot floor plan reflects the formality of the exterior with a dramatic central hall and staircase.  The formal living room with fireplace is opposite the dining room across the hall providing an atmosphere and circulation that facilitates entertaining.



Typical Detailing

Here again, the symmetrical placement of tall, French doors and arched casement windows give the façade an elegance and grandeur.  A steeply pitched roof topped by copper finials and flanked by tall chimneys and terracotta chimney pots, is the essence of regional architecture.  Our design would be equally appropriate constructed with limestone or a combination of limestone, stucco and brick accents.


Note how the 6" half-round copper guttering and leader heads add typical French accents.


We have increased the size of the family room to a generous 12'-4"x17'-8".  As with the original La Maison sur Loire, it features a second fireplace and vaulted ceiling.  With its garden view to the back, covered porch and patio it is an extension of the kitchen so the family may enjoy a casual space that is functional and open.  Opening to the family room, the kitchen has been expanded to 12'-4"x17'-8" with added counter space and more room for a free standing breakfast table between.  Other improvements to the original plan include the addition of a food pantry and butler's pantry between the dining room and kitchen.  A convenient laundry has been added just off the kitchen adjacent to the three car garage.


The ground floor master bedroom with fireplace has been expanded to 17'x21' with a high beamed ceiling and has dedicated access to the covered porch and is easily accessible from all living areas.   An enlarged master bath and walk-in closet make this wing even more enjoyable. 

At the top of the stairs, one is greeted by an overlook to the entry foyer below.  Three bedrooms have exterior French doors opening to exterior balconies.  Each with private bath, provides adequate space for family and guests.  Two bedrooms offer the option of connecting when desired.  A 776 square foot bonus room with half bath above the garage is accessed from the kitchen via its own private staircase.  This would be ideal for a media center, office, game room or fifth bedroom.  Stairs may be provided to a full third floor attic or more living space if desired.



Optional plans for compatible detached structures are now available.


You may want to convert the three car garage to a large family room and guest suite combination.  We have created a plan that does just that.  In addition, we have added a bath and play room/office suite above.  A detached, four car garage is also available with work and office space conveniently located above.




Detached Four Car Garage




For those with a pool or desiring a guest house, we now offer a plan that is compatible with the Maison sur Loire Collection.  It features a covered terrace with exterior and interior fireplace, a great room/kitchen/dining combination and two guestrooms with shared bath between. 


Both, match the main house in classic French styling and design features.
