Why we chose it: Everyone knows we love modern houses over here, and we make no apologies for that. But come on. Even you traditionalists have to admit this is a great house. And the native landscaping is attractive and smart. Unlike other folks in the area, these homeowners probably didn’t get a water bill that reduced them to tears during the long, hot summer.
