Why we love it: Designed by architect David Braden, this midcentury masterpiece pairs perfectly with its landscape (designed by Scapes Incorporated), much like an adult treehouse. “The architect put great care and imagination in designing this house to blend into its natural surroundings,” the homeowner says. “With it being cantilevered over the hillside while seeing a view of the Dallas skyline through the tree tops, it lends a perfect balance of modern living and nature.” The floor-to-ceiling windows that canvas the living areas offer up plenty of vantage points, as does the tiny deck that juts off just so. (Okay, we are only slightly obsessed with that cute deck.)
