The Ranger home collection at Avance is positioned to maximize views of the downtown Phoenix skyline. This architectural style was new to this region of the Phoenix area. A record-breaking 3,000 potential home buyers attended the grand opening, where more than 30 homes were sold.

With a Desert Modern exterior design theme, the Ranger Plan 3 features a neutral, tailored, and sophisticated ambiance. The biggest challenge with the plan was not sacrificing the design and architecture, while keeping the price point balanced with underwriting. For instance, the entry stone massing portico wall and front porch were costly features. To control cost, those two spaces were scaled and materials were reevaluated.  

From the Judges
The plan, a modern interpretation of the adobe style, is scaled very well. Its lines work well with the desert horizon. Judges praised the “beautiful outdoor patio,” with transparent fencing that creates “really clean fire features.”
