European Country
Mountain views and a floor plan which surrounds the swimming pool - reminiscent of the "courtyard plans" of old set this house apart from the typical country home. 

Given a photographic wish list from books about the Old World, we set out to design a house with the feel of old Europe inside and out.  The exterior mixes the board and stucco theme of old English tudor style homes with thatched roofs.  Precise stone work and a shingle roof completes the vision.  The interior expresses a french country feel with faux painting and plastered walls.
