As varied as the countries that make up the continent, European house plans are those that reflect the sophisticated tastes of the Old World; from Greek and Gothic Revival to Italianate, Spanish, Swiss, French and even Egyptian themed styles.
European home plans are endlessly adaptable and able to fit in wonderfully in all regions of the United States from Maine to Southern California. Whether chosen as an alternative to American architecture or as a tribute to a family’s continental roots, European style homes allow homeowners to “live abroad” without leaving the country.
