Builder: Rob Cuthbertson, Cuthbertson Homes
Architect: Jon Greenfield, Greenfield Design
Elegant yet rustic, this custom home is a stunning showcase of the French provincial style. With an expert execution of the steeply pitched hip roofs, which are a cornerstone of the aesthetic, Rob Cuthbertson with Cuthbertson Homes was able to create a house that was authentic and ethereal. “The French provincial style really started in rural France in the 1600s and 1700s,” explains Cuthbertson. “We started from that original style and have taken some of those concepts and applied them here. The end product is a style that is very central to what the homeowners wanted.”
A delicate blend of stone and brick once again embody the style and command the home’s exterior. These materials are punctuated with mirror-image windows, while a stately arched doorway is centered on the front porch between two sets of wicker furniture, making intimate arrangements that are prime for conversation.
