European home plans do not mirror a specific architectural design style. Rather, these homes generally embody a blend of architectural "flavors" that cast an overall look and feel that says "European." The appearance of these European style homes can range from quaint and cottage-like, to elegant and sophisticated luxury homes. Exteriors of European floor plans often include stone, stucco and brick and are commonly enhanced with wrought iron and cast-stone accents. Roof lines of European homes tend to be steep, employing multiple gables. Multi-paned windows of varying sizes are often positioned for the greatest aesthetic impact.
Luxury European floor plans typically have large, open living spaces and spacious bedrooms.
