They say everything is bigger in Texas.  In this case, that’s the truth. Luxury living doesn’t have to be waterfront or a high rise, just ask our Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage associates in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex. This often overlooked region has some of the hottest properties for luxury buyers.

Imagine waking up to endless views of Texas landscapes, big open skies and starry nights. Picture stepping out to a backyard that’s the perfect combination of classic and chic, fully equipped with a private gazebo and Grecian pool. Still think Texas homes are old as dirt? We beg to differ. These little diddies have some of the most desirable and trendy features that are in high demand for luxury buyers.

Here are five bigger and better Texas properties but I warn you, you may want to move to The Lone Star state after looking at these homes.
