French Country Home

The demonstration home on Maynard employs many characteristics of the French Country Chateau. These chateaus were based on French provincial farmhouse designs and country houses in Normandy. The French styles generally have steeply pitched roofs and chimney stacks that enhance a structure's skyline. The French Eclectic style never found extensive use in U.S. architecture. Most examples were built between 1920 and 1935.
