Okay Dallas modern house hunters, your search is over. A fabulous Tom Greico-designed midcentury modern-inspired home in Midway Hills just hit the market and it has everything your Mad Men dreaming heart desires, plus a few current design trends you’ll flip over. You’ll recognize the name, of course, as Greico Modern Homes is one of our personally vetted and best-in-town Approved Builders

It has luxurious appointments, an unbeatable location, custom design you won’t find anywhere else, plus great schools, endless entertaining, and a resort-style pool that screams luxury — all for under a million! That’s right, the four-bedroom, three-full-and-one-half-bathroom stunner is currently listed for $899,000, and was built and designed by the man who brought sexy back to Midway Hills, Tom Greico.

“The intent was to make the indoor spaces look like the outdoors,” says Greico. “It’s an open floor plan concept, so it’s pretty flexible. The home is really divided into three sections, the middle area is public and then you have the private areas with the beds and baths. The great room has walls of glass all opening to the outdoors. We actually used the mass of the house to give more privacy to the backyard.”
