French Eclectic - Old Omaha


French Eclectic homes are mostly identified by the very distinctive roof. It’s steeply pitched with eaves that often curve upward where the roof joins the wall. The roof is a prominent feature in this style, making up a third of the home. Beyond the unifying and distinctive roof, you might see a more formal iteration that’s symmetrical with a centered and highlighted entry, or a less formal asymmetrical version, like a french farmhouse. These can look much like a Tudor Revival style, but are distinguishable by the aforementioned roof and lack of cross or front-facing gables.
