Everything is bigger in Texas, even low-country-style homes

The winds of change are blowing through a new development in Texas
  • Gracepoint Homes new community Stillwater will feature homes reminiscent of the southeast.
  • Homes in Stillwater range from $370,000 up to $1 million.
  • Low-country-style homes offer spacious porches, high-ceiling, and lots of windows.

Some characteristics of homes immediately give way to the safe assumption about geographic location.

Put sprawling decks with dramatic overhangs and the low-country-style homes of the east coast come to mind.
