House of the Day: Rising to the Treetops in Texas

Remember when you were little and you wanted to live in a treehouse? Well, now you can. Sort of. Thanks to elevated, modern architecture (see above) which allows you to feel like you're living among the treetops, this is grownup treehouse living at its most stylish.

Located in Dallas, the striking $7.2 million contemporary boasts huge floor-to-ceiling windows that "bring the outdoors in" and offer tranquil, leafy views from every room. Inside, you'll find nothing but sleek natural finishes, fireplaces, sprawling living spaces and soaring ceilings. Outside, you can enjoy that incredible pool-with-waterfall, which is flanked, of course, by towering, mature trees.

What we love most? It's not your typical, classically romantic Dallas mansion. All clean lines and sharp edges, it almost exudes a Malibu-style sense of luxury -- except it's tucked away in the lush and pristine Texas Hill Country.

Julie Gilbert of Briggs Freeman/Sotheby's International Realty has the listing.
