European style timber frame homes evoke an Old World feel without compromising the luxuries of today’s modern living.



Timber frame homes boast a long history, conjuring images of real and fictional castles, chateaus, and country homes across Old World Europe. Today’s designs, like those in Woodhouse’s European series, incorporate modern sensibilities, while embodying all the romance of European style timber frame homes, which blend English countryside charm with French chateau sophistication. This harmonious fusion is evident in the designs’ steeply angled roofs, stained wooden beams, and stone facades adorned with diamond-patterned windows, showcasing exquisite craftsmanship and attention to detail.

With a collection of three European style timber frame home plans in varying sizes, Woodhouse has a design for every need and can tailor each to ensure a precise fit for your lifestyle. To customize further, the exterior finishes seen here are just a few of the many choices available, thanks to the flexibility provided by the use of structural insulated panels (SIPs) in walls and roofs. Woodhouse can help you find the right exterior finish to fit your desired aesthetic.

The ThistleWood

A three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bathroom sanctuary in which each bedroom gets its own ensuite, the ThistleWood plan ensures comfort and privacy for homeowners and guests within 4,123 square feet. Adorned with honey-colored limestone reminiscent of the Cotswolds in England, the exterior encapsulates European charm with its arched-top casement windows, wooden shutters, curved metal railings, and tapered stone piers. The slate roof, brick-paved driveway, formal garden, medieval-inspired stair towers, and turrets add even more Old World charm and curb appeal. A slate roof in a subtly deeper honey hue adds an element of sophistication to the exterior palette.

Reflecting refined taste and a commitment to craftsmanship, the interior is adorned with architectural details that make for an inviting ambiance. Think: arched doors and timbers stained in a rich dark hue with arched bottom chords. Enjoy indoor-outdoor living with both a deck and screened-in porch off the primary suite.

Artfully blending classic design elements with modern comforts, the home comes equipped with added luxuries such as a coffee bar, wine bar, mudroom, loft, and more. With practicality in mind, the floor plan offers an efficient layout that maximizes space and functionality.



The WisteriaManor

Spanning 3,561 square feet, this four-bed, four-and-a-half-bath, two-story residence captures the essence of elegance and European flair. Featuring brick siding, precast concrete window and door trim, and a slate roof, the WisteriaManor embodies the essence of timeless architectural design.

Standing at the intersection of luxury, warmth, and appreciation of European heritage, this unique floor plan allows you to relish in timeless antique design with all the modern attributes of a European home. Expanding on the limitless possibilities of flexible living arrangements, homeowners can choose to opt in for a roomy garage. An upscale primary suite allows for effortless and luxurious main-level living, featuring a coffered ceiling and its own exclusive bathroom. European-inspired scrollwork and brackets illuminate the kitchen, along with the exhaust hood over the built-in range. Outdoor living abounds regardless of weather thanks to a covered dining area nestled within the outdoor deck and gazebo, as well as open deck and porch options.



The PrimroseVilla

Featuring a magnificent great room with an eye-catching inglenook fireplace topped by a curved timber header, this custom three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bathroom European style retreat encompasses a roomy 3,229 square feet and emanates a warm English aesthetic. Tall windows and darkened coffered ceilings elevate the grandeur and distinguished European style home. There’s even an AGA cooker nestled within another inglenook in the traditional kitchen. Throughout, you’ll find a sense that the home, crafted and outfitted with materials that will survive the test of time, could exist in the past or present.

While there’s a surplus of space, the PrimroseVilla floor plan departs from a traditional timber frame home open floor plan layout, featuring several separate luxurious living spaces that generate an intimate, cozy atmosphere.

The cottage charm spills outside with a beautiful blend of indoor-outdoor living witnessed in its shared garden and patio. The brick exterior with half-timber detailing showcases its craftsmanship, European charisma and curb appeal with diamond-patterned windows, dark trim and steeply pitched slate roof.
