European style house plans feature architectural designs and details inspired by Old World chateaus and picturesque cottages of France, Italy and England. These homes are often constructed with ornate metal work such as wrought iron balustrades, copper awnings and decorative shutters adorning windows and balconies. Steep-pitched roofs, corner quoins and curved, interlocking lines are common among European style homes. The building’s exterior is typically sided or trimmed in brick, stone or stucco.
