Experience the Grandeur of Texas Architecture
The famous statement "everything is bigger in Texas" rings true in the stately mansions and sprawling estates of San Antonio, Houston, Austin and Dallas-Fort Worth. Melissa, Bellaire, Coppell and other affluent neighborhoods offer stunning architectural homes that rival the most refined European villas.
Bigger is Better in Texas Architecture
As the largest state in the USA, Texas architecture includes mega-mansions, extensive villas and sprawling estates. However, ranch-style homes remain the most popular among Cape cod, Colonial, mid-century modern and Georgian architecture styles. Single-story L-shaped homes with low rooflines, open floor plans and stucco, brick, or wood exteriors dot the vast expanse of Texas.
Grandeur and Opulence - Luxury Houston Architecture
One of Houston's most sophisticated residences, the River Oaks District welcomes guests from Bellaire and beyond. Inside, scenic trees and architectural overhangs frame the streets and pedestrian walkways. Each building has a unique design that uses local stone, glass, and steel while blending in with the geological landscape. The main building features an undulating façade that ingeniously reflects the large oak trees below.
The Hotel Granduca, overlooking West University Place in Houston, is the closest you can get to Italy without leaving the county. An asymmetrical design with a low-pitched roof gives the hotel the feel of an Italian villa. A smooth brown stucco finish covers the exterior while projecting eaves with large brackets and an arched loggia complete the Italian ambiance.

The luxurious pied-a-terre comes with a tennis court, a sports court with a trellis-shaded viewing platform and a lagoon-inspired swimming pool.
European Villa Elegance in Luxury San Antonio Architecture
Snugly hidden in the rich greenery of Terell hills lies a beautiful Spanish Revival estate built in the 20th century.

The Cordillera home in Fair Oaks Ranch offers panoramic views from every room.
