Seaside Home Inspired by French Country Architecture
New in our photo gallery is this luxury home inspired by French Country architecture. We were honored to be chosen by Butera Builders to supply the Kolbe Windows for this majestic seaside home. The beauty of this home is in its grand entrance and gorgeous exterior details. Every window, door, gable, and eave is adorned with a unique architectural treatment. Much like the estates found across the French countryside of Provence, this home features old-world charm with a natural stone exterior, formal symmetry of the windows and gables, and a beautiful balance of rustic and refined characteristics.
Unlike the homes of the French countryside, this waterfront home needs to withstand harsh New England coastal storms. Thankfully, the versatility of Kolbe Windows Ultra Series allow for old-world millwork details to be combined with the most stringent impact performance requirements for waterfront new construction homes here in the Northeast. Peter Landolfi, one of our Architectural Sales Reps at Horner helped the builder, architect, and homeowner chose the perfect windows to meet both style and impact requirements. Kolbe Ultra Series windows with impact-rated glass and upgrades were the perfect choice!
Kolbe Ultra Series windows mimic the traditional style of wood windows and doors with a warm wood interior and intricate exterior trim details. The extruded aluminum exterior is strong and durable and is available in a variety of colors. True to this homes French country roots, the exterior of the windows were finished in Natural Cotton, a soft neutral color that perfectly complements the style of the home. The Kolbe Ultra Series Sterling Double-Hung windows found throughout the home feature patented interior wood covers that conceal the jambliners and balances, giving the windows a luxurious, all-wood appearance.
