The rumors are true: everything *is* bigger in Texas! Where a well-manicured lawn accentuates the home's clean lines, an impressively tall tree adds both height and history to the property.

Contemporary Ranch House in Texas

Half a mile from the main road, past herds of longhorn cattle and horses, sits a stunning contemporary ranch house. Thanks to its low-level design, the home maximizes views of the enormous Texas sky.

Four-Stall Garage With Steel Grid Doors

With a 22,000-square-foot home, the owners of this lot also needed plenty of room to park their cars. Thus, a four-stall garage was added to the far end of the drive, with white-and-metal doors for privacy.

Metallic Sculpture Enlivens Stone Exterior

The front of the home also features a few pieces of contemporary art, which nods to the owner's museum-quality collection. Here, two rustic stone columns flank a silver sculpture on either side and create a cool juxtaposition of contrasting styles.

Just a few feet from the front door, a raised travertine deck becomes a pedestal for abstract artwork. With floor-to-ceiling windows behind the piece, visitors can admire the sculpture no matter which way they're going.
