Do you love French Country architecture
as I do?
 
Here is what I learned about the chartreuse style
 
Chartreuse houses are really typical properties
from the Gascony French area.
Chartreuses are large stone houses
with a gently sloping tiled roof.

These Gascony houses are often mistaken
with Chateaux (castles).
 
The floors in Chartreuse houses
are made of wood or paved.
Pieces of wood are used everywhere,
and they often have mezzanines.
 
Chartreuse properties are normally single-storey
lengthwise houses, recalling the famous
Longere houses that can be seen
in Brittany, Aquitaine and Normandy
but also in Midi Pyrenees.
 
Chartreuse properties generally have
a pigeonnier outbuilding.
As often, the attic can be used to store
goods or can be converted into a bedroom.
 
These Gascony properties are generally
really quiet places.
Chartreuses properties often have
a name, as Villas do.
 
The word Chartreuse also generally
refers to a countryside house in Midi-Pyrenees,
with a view over the mountains.
 
involved the complete transformation
of an existing Pebble Beach property.
What was once a suburban ranch home
became a chartreuse, a type of single-story
French country house with a central wing
and flanking pavilions arranged around
a three-sided entry court.
 
Let's take a tour of this beautiful chartreuse.
