Simple mansard roof houses – beautiful and practical without taking much space

Regardless of the size and the simplicity of design, mansard roof houses have a special charm and are an excellent choice for living, as well as spending a vacation. We’ve selected three plans of simple mansard roof houses which have a footprint of no more than 700 square feet.

Looking at this first house, we notice the stone and wooden decorative elements, finely and harmoniously combined. It has a classical front door and a modern lateral one. Big simple windows let the light in downstairs, while velux ones do the same for the attic. It has a 675 square feet footprint and a 990 square feet living area.
