Texas markets are among the healthiest right now, and these are some of the best-selling plans 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.

Views From the Top

This award-winning home was designed to get the most out of a steeply sloping lot. Spectacular views over the hillside are captured by the wall of windows that lines the great room. The porch that stretches across the back of the home offers another spot from which to enjoy the view. For more photos, information, and the floor plan, click here.

Life of the Party

Outside, the rugged exterior displays shingles, stone, and decorative trusses. Inside, a comfortable, open layout is ready to entertain in style. The rear lanai and barbecue porch share a fireplace for chilly nights. Optional recreation spaces upstairs let the party continue. Don't miss the impressive kitchen or the exercise room connected to the master suite. For more photos, information, and the floor plan, click here.
