Desert Home With Curved Overhangs, Setbacks

This expansive modern home doesn't take its desert views for granted. Rather, the property features glass doors, sleek setbacks and several clearstory windows to enjoy as much natural light and perspective as possible. Sliding doors open to the backyard, where the owners have access to an outdoor kitchen and pool, too.

Front Exterior With Desert Landscaping

This remarkable home fits gracefully into its surrounding desert landscape with stucco walls and stone tile walkways. The roof is broken up into separate segments, some of which are arched cantilevers, leaving sightlines open inside.

Modern Open Plan Kitchen and Great Room

To help create separate areas visually within this open concept living space, the architects designed ceilings that look different in different parts of the room. The huge windows lining the home make the outdoors a vital element of the interior.

Modern Great Room With Clerestory Windows

The designers of this spectacular modern home wanted to flood the interiors with natural light. One of the ways they achieved this was to add clerestory windows that have the added effect of making the ceiling seem to float above the walls.

Modern Master Bedroom With Curved Wall

A curved outer wall of glass shows off sweeping desert views and softens the overall feel of this stunner of a master bedroom.

Master Spa Bathroom With Cactus View

Betcha the best spas don't come with views like this: A freestanding soaking tub gives a prime vantage point for taking in the desert flora and fauna.

Pool With Stepping Stones and Patio

Stepping stones in this home's solar-heated pool mean getting from the main patio to the guest patio is only a (ready for it?) hop, skip and jump away.

Aerial View of Desert Home

From this overhead view, it's easy to see how this home's dynamic roof design contains multiple cantilevered segments. At the left is a guest wing with a patio, pool and 360-degree views of desert canyons and a golf course.
