European House Plans | European-style Cottages (2024)

European house plans aren’t so much an architectural style as they are a “look” for many types of popular home plans. This catch-all designation embraces architectural touches from a variety of European home plan traditions and melds them together to create an original house plan, though highly familiar look. For example, quoins from the Georgian house plan style and palladian windows originating from the 16th Century Italian architect, Andrea Palladio, might combine with arched openings reminiscent of the French Normandy house plan style and Cotswold Cottage-style shutters. Some European house plan similarities are common, though not always universal. Exteriors are typically brick, stone, or stucco and the homes are usually 1-1/2 or two stories tall. This assortment of European house plans from Alan Mascord Design Associates, Inc. offers a broad spectrum of looks from simple European-style cottages, stucco house plans, elegant house plans, European French house plans and more lavish estates—all showcasing Old World touches.
