English Country House Plans
What do you think of when you hear the term “English Country” house? Larger than life? Grand, elaborate and Estate-like? Well, it can be, and is, however, in ‘real world’ home living, think classical refinement that tolerates wear and tear. A home that is flexible, yet elegant, calm, and still feels grand if you prefer, is English Country style.
From the exterior, a covered doorway, but not porch-like, welcomes you. Steep-pitched rooflines and dormers (a ‘gabled’ roof) are the ‘hat’ to the home whose ‘eyes’ are commonly large, squared-off windows.
Yes, fabled, charming turrets “towers” are also a part of this style, but less common. If you like that look and want that fairy-tale feel in your English home, you are in the right place. Living Concepts has many plans in this charming, well-established look, but with creature comforts and modern amenities, so go ahead, we encourage you to browse through and choose the perfect one.
As with other European-styled homes, the English Country uses timbers, stone, and stucco elements, both inside and out. Hardwood floors, that look a bit ‘scrubbed” and worn might be your choice. Shabby-chic décor with some added whimsy is allowed and even encouraged with this style. It’s yours, make it warm, make it ‘glow’ but mostly, make your English Country homeownership easy.
