Luxury outdoor living is a huge trend in the North Texas housing market — homeowners want to make the most of every square inch of their property, and that means outside spaces that wow. After all, we get on average 232 sunny days a year and should be able to enjoy it properly.

We’ve spotted six Dallas-Fort Worth houses on the market now that offer the very best of outdoor living. These properties offer luxe features that range from a saltwater swimming pool and lazy river, to full patio kitchens with high-end appliances and beautiful masonry stonework.

“We’re seeing growing demand in the luxury real estate market for properties that allow homeowners to live life to the fullest, both indoors and out,” said Randall Graham, vice president and director of marketing for Ebby Halliday Realtors. “When the inside of a home features high-end amenities and finish-outs, the outdoor area should be an extension of that look and feel, creating a welcoming atmosphere and a natural space for effortless entertaining.”
