Top definition
An overly pretentious, historically inaccurate suburban tract house that co-opts 17c Provencal (French) architectural detailing in order to project an "old world" image and, ostensibly, the cachet and wealth that comes with such an image. Usually fails miserably when two or more houses are placed within 5 feet of one another, often being incompatible styles altogether.
