When you think of high-end housing, does Garland come to mind? It should — this eastern DFW city offers some coveted gated communities with golf course views, larger lots, high-end finish-out, and custom details. 

Garland is large, 57.1 square miles, and bordered by Dallas, Mesquite, Sunnyvale, Lake Ray Hubbard, Rowlett, Sachse, Murphy, and Richardson. It has a rich history that has helped shape it into a family-oriented, thriving city in North Texas with almost 237,000 people. It offers easy access to downtown Dallas via Interstate 30, two DART Blue line stations, and multiple buses. 

Compared to many parts of DFW, you can buy a lot of house for your money in Garland. That’s why it pays to have a local expert by your side if you’re buying in the city, like the Realtors at Ebby Halliday. They know exactly what you can get in each neighborhood, what the competition is like, and how to best negotiate a sale. 

I’ve found three stellar houses for sale in Garland that illustrate the higher-end properties there, all repped by Ebby. Let’s take a look!
