With the housing market still languishing under the weight of foreclosures, a mass of "shadow inventory" and high unemployment, not many of us are lucky enough to be picky about the architectural nuances of our homes.

But for every dull cookie-cutter McMansion, there are homes like these. Courtesy of Trulia, one of the most comprehensive real estate sites on the web, we've compiled 10 stunningly modern homes from various cities across the country. The homes range from a eco-friendly gem in one of Chicago's most sought-after neighborhoods to two pricey homes that aren't bashful about their modern styling.
