One of the great pleasures of living in North Texas is being outside. Homes with outdoor living areas seem to be designed for this time of year, offering a variety of options for entertaining or just relaxing. Kick back beside an outdoor fireplace on a cozy covered patio or enjoy a heated spa, all before grilling dinner outdoors.
Several homes that offer the chance to be outside in plush surroundings are:
