French Provincial Influences In New Homes

Example of French Provincial influence

The Finishing Touch are currently working with several Builders in the planning stages of house construction in Melbourne.  The first home under development is a large, 70 squares, two storey construction in Glen Iris with a French provincial influence.
The French provincial style will be achieved through the use of architectural decorative mouldings, with parapet eaves, measuring 240 x 247mm, running the full perimeter of the building. These will be combined with under gutter mouldings, giving the effect of a larger parapet and, at the same time, hiding the gutter. The nine front windows will boast French provincial window architraves as well as French provincial window sills. A decorative keystone above the entrance on the balcony along with window frame architraves, measuring 90x 40mm, around the entrance and the balcony help create the grand entrance required of French provincial homes. Quoinings on the far left and far right of the front facade of the building create further decorative features.

Another home under development with a French provincial influence is a 65 squares, two storey, property in Strathmore. Eave mouldings, measuring 240 x 247mm, run the full perimeter of the building with parapet mouldings, measuring 160 x 150mm, also running the full perimeter between the first and second storey. Small stringer mouldings complement these parapet mouldings, running parallel and measuring 90 x 70mm. A parapet mould 240 x 247mm in size is centred above the balcony with picture frame architraves around the entrance.

A 50 squares, two storey post-modern home is under development in the south eastern suburb of Lysterfield.  Eave parapet mouldings, measuring 161 x 158mm, adorn the top storey whilst parapet mouldings, measuring 161 x 158mm, will run the perimeter of the building between the ground floor and the top floor. A decorative parapet moulding 161 x 158mm will be centred above the balcony and eight windows will be decorated with picture frame window architraves measuring 80 x 36mm.
