Single Family Portfolio
One of the most distinctive characteristics of many French buildings is the tall second story windows, often arched at the top, that break through the cornice and rise above the eaves.

This unusual window design is especially noticeable on America's French provincial homes. Modeled after country manors in the French provinces, these brick or stucco homes are stately and formal.

They have steep hipped roofs and a square, symmetrical shape with windows balanced on each side of the entrance. The style borrowed freely from a variety of French details, creating a composite style known as French eclectic, or simply French-inspired to create landmark houses.
