French Country Home
Inspired by the owner’s personal travels and experiences in France, this home sits on a large lot that gives the illusion of a French country estate in the Loire valley. With stucco siding, it was possible to achieve the authenticity that was expected from the client. This desire also translated into many of the selected details many of which were historic including a 300-year-old clay tile floor that was recycled from a French chateau. The site feels miles from civilization yet exists just a half-mile from the town of Harbor Springs.
