Why we chose it: Dallas is full of mid-century moderns, and we thought it important to include that style. Here’s the problem: while everyone agrees on their cool factor, most mid-century moderns are not what you’d call “beautiful.” This Kessler Lake treasure is an exception. It’s also one of the few houses on our list that affords you a view of the back—including the space-age floating veranda.
