Granville homes is a faith-based Development Company. We have homes for modern families with a focus on "How people live".
Victorians were relational homes, each home was different, and each had its own personality.
They were social homes where neighbors connected with each other via the deep-covered wrap-around porches providing hospitality.
The Atlantic Monthly in 1897 said, "The Victorian Modern Home ( 1897 modern) was a home family wanted to live in even if they didn't like each other". Our Brand of copyrighted Victorian and Neo-Victorian designs with their private, dignified, separate, levels perfect that sentiment today.
When designed and built together as a neighborhood they had an identity.
With traditional and Neo-Victorian designs, Granville will continue to bring back, with a few changes, what once worked in America.

In McGuffey"s Modern home Catalogue we playfully contrast the hand-drawn, vividly described pages with Granville's CAD-generated plans and today's bland advertising language.
ex: In 1887, "to paint a Victorian is a tale of foolishness, brute force, ignorance, stupidity, and terror...the ultimate joy."
