Le Vieux Manoir

Le Vieux Manoir French Country House Plan
Le Vieux Manoir (Click image to enlarge)

ur  Le Vieux Manoir plan evokes the desire of many to escape the city life and move into a charming "old house" to get away from it all.  This partially timbered house is typical of many in the northern French countryside.  Heavy timbers with inset brick in a herringbone pattern introduce a level of detail that evokes French country charm. 



Clay chimney pots atop tall chimney

A rough limestone exterior and shake roof recall typical French construction methodologies while tall, flanking chimneys topped with terracotta chimney pots add yet another level of detail that make this house so appealing.   In addition, the boxed bay window with timber brackets below, partially engaged dormers and an occasional shed dormer create the appeal of this retreat.  Exposed rafter tails punctuating the roof's edge add yet another touch of functional yet charming detail found in many French dwellings.


The cottagey feel of this house belies the generous size of the spaces within.  With over 3,486 square feet of space, this plan offers much to desire.  A large living room and fireplace is just off the entrance foyer and is open to the formal dining area.  A half bath lies across the hall.  More informal living space lies just beyond with a generous family room with fireplace and vaulted ceiling.  An open kitchen at one end of the family room brings the family together just off the porch and garage. 


Equally convenient is the generous master bedroom suite located off the family room.  The suite features a large master bath, tub, shower and double sinks, two walk-in closets and laundry room for added convenience. 


The staircase leads from the foyer to three sizable bedrooms on the second floor.  Each bedroom has its own private bath and generous closet space.  A large bonus room over the garage is accessible from the kitchen and offers an excellent opportunity for another guest room, office or media room convenient to the center of family activity.
