  1. I will give you a different rank because you did fail to review my house. All of this is based on size and best design
    1)-Biltmore
    2)-Hearst castle
    3)- Dumbarton oaks main house on R and 32nd st NW, Washington DC (my house to be, based on design alone, the size will be cut again, around 3 acres to fit with the land)
    4)- Monticello

  2. Some of these houses are not very interesting at all, other than their historic significance (and not as architectural masterpieces). Where is Dennis Johnson’s Glas House? You can not let the public vote on something like “Best Architecture” because there are so many technical aspects of which they do not know anything, which in large part determine the quality of the building..
