French Bastide

Architectural Style: Transitional French Provencal

A Bastide was a square or rectangular stone Manor house in the south of France in the Middle Ages, particularly in the Provence countryside in the south of France, they were originally occupied by a wealthy farmer.

Stepping through our Bastide influenced home, the ground-level archway leading into a rotunda, was surrounded by archways.  This configuration, elicits a sensation of traveling through time, enhanced by natural, period materials.  Roughhewn wood floors and antique, textured stone floors, transport you into the essence of a time-tested ambience.  While elevating the old into the present with its use of new technology, it allows the small spaces of yesterday to explode into the awe inspiring spaces of today.
