Designed by architect Graham Greene of Oglesby Greene Architects, this magnificent home won the designers the Dallas Chapter AIA 2010 Firm of the Year Award and the 2010 AIA Interior Architecture Design Award.

The home looks almost traditional as it almost disappears from the street, but as you approach the house, next to a gurgling stream, down along the stone entrance path, under the canopy of a trellis and approach the front door, the blended nature of this modern home and dramatic site is revealed.

Still outside the front door, you can look through a glass-walled corridor into a garden with sweeping lawn and mature trees, and see the stream reappear from under the entrance corridor, past a Koi pond, flowing down a natural rock formation in a waterfall, and on its way to White Rock Creek below the bluff.
