Throughout the past year, thousands and thousands of home plans were sold. Among them, a handful of designs were purchased more often than any others. By compiling the sales figures of each plan, we have come up with the ultimate list of house plans-the HomeStyles Top 10.
A warm, inviting appeal and numerous special features and amenities helped distinguish these plans and led consumers just like you to choose them. Attractive dormers and gabled roof extensions, stately columns that define covered front porches and elegant entryways are some of the exterior features that stand out. Open, expansive living spaces with breathtaking views of natural landscapes, sunny breakfast nooks, well-designed kitchens and stunning master suites with lavish private baths are a few of the interior qualities that make these homes shine.
And so, without further ado, we present the top-selling homes of 1996.
