French Chateau House Plans & Floor Plans
For those who want to live like royalty, you’ll find your castle house plan in the Chateauesque style.
Inspired by French Chateau house plans of the 16th century, the Chateauesque style is a popular choice for lavish homes designed to impress. Typically built on large, estate lots, the modern Chateau house plan features the steep, complex rooflines characteristic of its ancestors, enhanced with spires, pinnacles, dormers, turrets, and chimneys. The Chateauesque home displays a general sense of verticality and substance, with masonry walls broken by tall windows.
A Chateau floor plan is made for entertaining. Formal rooms are large and elaborate, while private living areas (though equally luxurious), will be isolated from the public spaces.
