Texas markets are among the healthiest right now, and some of the best-selling plans come from the Lone Star State. They aren’t just for cowboys, though—rugged good looks and layouts that celebrate the outdoors make these homes likely to be favorites wherever they’re built.

Award-winning Texas homes are designed to get the most out of the lot, even those with steeply sloping lots – like homes built in the Hill Country. Spectacular views over the hillside are often captured by walls of windows that line great rooms. Porches stretch across the backs of homes and offer cool shade -another spot from which to enjoy the view.

Outside, rugged exteriors display shingles, stone, and decorative trusses. Native stone and traditional stucco lend an enduring beauty and are often warmed by red cedar on the soffits and porch ceilings.

Besides great curb appeal, these homes have wonderful floor plans. Inside, comfortable, open layouts are ready to entertain in style. Rear lanais and barbecue porches showcase fireplaces perfect for chilly nights. Optional recreation spaces upstairs allow the party to continue.

Texas is known for its brilliant sunlight, and you will find it streaming through large, arch-topped windows into great rooms, highlighting impressive stone fireplaces, and impressive kitchens or an exercise room connected to the master suite. Kitchens feature more stone on arched cooking areas. Functional, entertaining islands play a big role in the Texas kitchen.

Foyers are featuring more and more fountains which lead to a formal dining room or an open living room. Large family rooms are popular at the rear of the home with built-in entertainment centers and fireplaces.
