"I'm a city girl.... But if I were going to live in a new subdivision, Grandview Commons on the east side of Madison would be my kind of place. The houses are close together, they're bedecked with porches and they hug the street; they come in colors as diverse as russet, blue, rose and dark-green, and in styles ranging from modern bungalows to modified Queen Annes.The lots are small and easy to maintain, with garages in back facing alleys; and there are well-designed public spaces, from pocket parks to a village green studded with mature trees...There are breathtaking views of the state Capitol, which is just a few miles away."
