7270 Baxtershire Drive, Dallas 75230 $799K

When you talk about mid-century modern neighborhoods in Dallas, the houses on the Disney streets usually come up first, and they certainly are among the googiest. However, I have a special place in my heart for the majestic, rambling ranches in the neighborhoods between Forest and Royal, between Preston and 75. Many of these houses were custom-built, high-quality homes in their time. Many of them have enjoyed a fantastic second life in the hands of owners who respect their heritage.

A great example: 7270 Baxtershire. This house was designed by Fred Tycher in 1961 for himself and his family. It's got great curb appeal and the inside features soaring vaulted ceilings with full length architectural beams. The current owners completed a major renovation and restoration in 2007. The results are stunning.
