Vieux Carré (the original name for the French Quarter in Louisiana), built by Sammy Stover & Jared Wilder of The Longtown Company, beautifully exemplifies the classic French Colonial architecture prevalent to Pre-Colonial Louisiana. Designed by Jeff Bramlett of Jeff Bramlett Custom Residential Design, the home exudes the enduring and idyllic form unique to the lifestyle and climate of the South.
With the use of engaging outdoor spaces, such as courtyards and a spacious rear porch, the French Colonial style draws the homeowner outdoors, while the expansive windows provide sweeping views from within. The ultimate beauty of Vieux Carré lies in the longevity of its design. The depth of detail, evident in the timber lintels, natural brick, round columns, open rafter tails and the deep overhang of the roof, unveils the timeless, natural, beauty of this provincial style of architecture.
The attention to detail and employment of natural materials continues throughout the interior of the home. From the cypress beams on the ceiling, brick floors, and limestone mantle to the natural cypress paneling on the fireplace, Vieux Carré invokes the tranquility found in the natural setting surrounding the home.
