Royal Texan Homes derives our French from the Chartreuse gentilhommière, country homes historically built as retreats for the gentlemen and ladies living in town. These homes presented a refined architecture and décor that the nobility brought to a provincial setting. A wonderful blend of elegance with occasional rustic elements gives a pleasant, light, airy feeling that lends itself to easy living.
Natural light, large windows, earthy textures married to elegant colors, and large spaces have been the characteristics of these homes since their development after the Hundred Years War. The opportunities for modernization combined with classic French architectural grandeur give a unique opportunity to reside in a home that can in equal measure provide rest and copious space for entertaining.
The French offers a truly unique opportunity to live in a historically inspired, beautiful retreat.
