What Houzz contributors are saying:

Steven Corley Randel, Architect added this to Roots of Style: French Eclectic Design Continues to Charm
Here the architects have combined a tower element with an otherwise symmetrical primary elevation. Massive brick chimneys, stucco with brick detailing and hipped dormers contribute to the French eclectic theme.The French eclectic style persisted through much of the 20th century, though it was less popular than many other styles. Most homes in this style were custom built during times of prosperity, as the complexity of the fashion adds to the cost of construction. More recent examples are usually found on individually developed parcels in high-end neighborhoods. A few modest early-1900s houses exist in popular locations.Because of the combination and variations of the elements, these houses rarely appear to resemble one another. As mentioned earlier, the prominent hipped roof signals the style's designation, along with appropriately scaled details. Because of these attributes, the style continues to charm and invite many homeowners.More: Where Did Your House Get Its Look?
