French Chateau Style in the Modern Era

The house on Colgate demonstrates the French Chateau architecture style, which was popularized in America between 1880 and 1910.  French Chateau architecture is inspired by the 15th and 17th century country estates of French nobility and royalty. You can see the features of the style in the home’s construction,  including smooth stone walls and complex roof lines with steeply pitched, hipped roofs, corner turrets, and french ornamentation.
