Home preferences and priorities have changed with the times.  “Americans want smaller houses and they are willing to strip some of yesterday’s most popular rooms.”  “Buyers today want cost-effective architecture, plans that focus on spaces and not rooms and homes that are designed ‘green’ from the outset.”  Most of the homes in Arlington Place hit all of these top 10 must haves!
