Home of the year

Mapping the road to our 1996 Home of the Year is easy. Take Imagination Street to Family Needs Place (that's the fork in the road), then follow signs leading to Comfort Court. Just past the Budget Cutoff, you'll see our home. It's right there on American Dream Lane. Architect T. Randolph Grange has perfectly captured the way we live in the 1990s. Out front, the home has well-defined gables, a slight eyebrow lift, a shady porch with paired columns, and other elements that appeal to our love of classically American architecture. By contrast, the rear facade features a contemporary wall of windows, and the interior has hints of traditional design woven into the kind of open living spaces we desire today.
