Characterized by their rustic and French country style, Acadian house plans are very popular throughout the South and Gulf Coast region, which features strong French and Cajun influences in both architecture and culture. These homes are most commonly single-story buildings, though some models do feature a half story with tall, sloping rooflines. In fact, high-pitched hip roofs are among the signature features of Acadian style homes. They add to the rural charm of the homes while also making it easy to shed rain, snow, or debris like leaves and small branches. Brick exterior, front porches, and wraparound porches are also typical of this architectural design.

Features of Acadian Home Design

Here are a few other characteristics you’ll commonly find with this style house:

  • Steeply pitched hip roofs with dormers — this space is used for attics or extra bedrooms.
  • Grand entryways and impressively high ceilings in the living room and dining room areas — hence the 1½ story layouts.
  • More traditional and segmented floor plan — the bedrooms are shifted to the sides of the home and divided by a central hallway. The master suite is often split from the others.
  • The kitchen is located at the rear of the house — it typically does not connect to the dining room, great room or other areas.
  • Covered porches both in the front and back — this is similar to what you’d find with Southern style homes.
  • Windows with shutters and a stonework facade — as these homes were frequently built in locales where storms were a regular occurrence, these features can be both functional and ornamental.
