Living in Laguna Beach gets you accustomed to many architectural styles that include Mediterranean, Spanish and lots of Contemporary homes.  One of the few architectural styles you don't commonly see is a home built in a Farmhouse style.  A new listing has come on the market in the Smithcliffs gated community in Laguna Beach and is described as being built in the French Farmhouse architectural style.  I have to admit I have never heard of a French Farmhouse architecture before but after doing some research I learned that it derives inspiration from the French Country style which offers a relaxed but elegant style with vaulted ceilings and top of the line finishes.  Often the walls and valued ceilings are painted white to make the space feel even bigger.

The Laguna Village area is one of the closest neighborhoods to the beach in the downtown area.  Many of the homes were first built here starting in the early 1900's and slowly built up through the mid 1950's through 1970's.  There has been a trend lately to tear down some of the original homes and build newer construction homes in place of them.  This is happening all throughout Laguna Beach and the Village area is starting to see several of these homes come on the market for sale.
