From the exterior, this marvelous building in Dallas, Texas looks more like a museum or some other sort of institution than a house, a testament to its ability to combine a modernist and Brutalist aesthetic with practical living.

Built in 1973, the 5,280-square-foot midcentury monolith combines curving volumes clad in brick and punctuated with towering windows offering impressive high-ceilinged spaces that feel almost gothic. You want a house to move you, and this one truly does.

Inside, the home feels warm, thanks to wood paneling, brick and otherwise textiled walls, tiled floors, and dark wood accents. Four carpeted bedrooms, four-and-a-half baths, three living areas, dining room, sunroom, multiple balconies, and more are found over two stories connected by a spiral staircase.

Upon entering via an elevated walkway, a soaring great room with an expanse of windows, brick fireplace, and views of the 1.34-acre property greets you, setting the mood for the rest of the residence. Fireplaces are found throughout, as are pockets of spaces that make up a cozy den, for instance, or an informal dining room.

The home appears to be in wonderful condition, with seemingly original architectural details and decor, like the period kitchen (with upgraded steel appliances), and floral wallpaper in the master bath—which also happens to boast an in-floor bathtub.

With a new set of furniture and a slight refresh, the property at 10035 Surrey Oaks Drive in Preston Hollow, listed for $2,295,000, would be an absolute dream.
