Price: $995,000

Al Beadle, the renowned modernist who brought the steel-and-glass Case Study House sensibility to the deserts of Arizona, designed this ravishing midcentury, known as Beadle House #7, for his own family in 1956. More recently, the four-bedroom, 2770-square-foot pad has been comprehensively renovated by current owners, who sought to restore the place with attention to original details. Upon entering through the shaded courtyard entry, you'll find an open main living area with an authentic suspended steel hearth, stone wall, restored redwood siding, and glass walls opening up to the pool surrounded by patios and desert landscaping.

The total revamp is also responsible for the new Euro-stype kitchen, baths, slate flooring and carpeting. This Beadle Box is currently on the market for $995K, but for the commitment-averse, the property is also available to rent for $4,400 a month.
