A mansard or mansard roof (also called a French roof or curb roof) is a four-sided gambrel-style hip roof characterized by two slopes on each of its sides with the lower slope, punctured by dormer windows, at a steeper angle than the upper.

The mansard style roof adds to the upper attic space on a typical bungalow. Creating full use of the square feet without awkward sloping roofs and dormers. The style was created and popularized in France by a brilliant architect Francois Mansart.  In the 1600 cities in France had height restrictions as we have today, so he came up with a plan to allow water to shed from the roof while allowing the full use of the upper attic space. It truly is a creative way to add space to a bungalow.

The home at 781 11th Line in Meaford benefitted wonderfully from this extra space. They installed a steel roof which will last for years, much longer than a traditional asphalt roof.  This ultimately evolved the homes floor plan from a traditional living space to a reverse floor plan. In real estate terms that is the kitchen, living room and dining room are on the upper floor. This was the way to turn this normal bungalow into a fantastic view catching home.  By way of view I mean the Niagara Escarpment, Georgian Bay and the Peaks, it’s truly awesome! With the Mansard  roof construction They captured enough space for 2 full size bedrooms, a washer and dryer room and 5 piece washroom. I almost forgot the master bedroom with a luxurious spa like ensuite (6 Piece) and enormous walk in closet.

 

This family home has HUGE views to the east overlooking Meaford, Georgian Bay and the Niagara Escarpment. The home is more than 4000sq’ and very unassuming.
