After watching the sprawling estates and Texas architecture featured each week in the remake of the dramatic TV series “Dallas” on TNT our editors were inspired to go through The House Designers large collection of luxury house plans and find the biggest and most extravagant estates to rival Southfork and the luxurious lifestyle of the famed Ewings. Here are some of our top luxury house plans for homeowners looking to live ‘Texas’ large:
The Paradise Lodge combines Craftsman, Tudor and country architectural styling to create a luxury estate that’s perfect for any location. Total living area for this home is 8,515 square feet and that includes a 5-car garage attached to the main house, third floor bonus space and a guesthouse with a pool bath, 2-car garage plus boat trailer bay and second story vaulted one bedroom apartment.
Take a bird’s eye view of this luxury estate and you’ll find tennis courts, a large patio with pool and plenty of outdoor living spaces.
