Châteausque was influenced back in Europe by the Gothic style and Renaissance architecture. The materials used usually in these types of builds are stone, brick trim and sometimes wood with stone and brick. The first build of this home was in Canada back in 1887.

Who would have lived here.

Rich people or Royalty would have lived in these big, fancy homes, because they are not the cheapest. They are made of expensive material and mostly more than 4-5 bedroom/ bathrooms.
