Created in “French Urban” style, the homes express a refined elegance similar to that found in regions such as Provence, with monochromatic limestone and stucco exteriors, and sophisticated yet subtle architectural details. This unique aesthetic captures the culture and romance of a small European community, and is ideal for the urban dweller looking for the privacy and comfort of country living.
These French inspired homes were designed by HICKS partnership with functionality of the home in mind. However, these homes can be altered or fully customized to suit your needs.
