House of the Day: Tucson Home Is a Desert Oasis

If living in the middle of the desert has never appealed to you, then it's probably because you haven't seen this home before.

Built upon almost three acres of land adjacent to Coronado National Forest, this $3.25 million home in Tuscon, Ariz. -- the world's "greenest desert" -- proves that desert living is just as luxurious as coastal living.

Surrounded by mountains and wild cacti, the stunning home's earthy aesthetic, wood detailing and mill work blend seamlessly into its natural environment. Mirroring Tucson's jagged mountain terrain, the home's striking geometric architecture features sloping ceilings, dropped floors and large, carefully angled windows. Its sharp corners remind us a little of Florida's famous "cube" home, but not quite as severe (or cubic). The home's decor is modern and subtly sleek, ensuring that attention is not taken from the home's architecture and artwork.
