House of the Day: Doing Things Texas-Style




Texas is one of those larger-than-life places. Take this almost 16,000-square-foot mansion in Austin, on the market for $10 million. Set on almost 11 acres, the home backs up to the Wild Basin Wilderness Preserve, which means nobody is going to mess with you building-wise. Of course we all know not to mess with Texas anyway, right?


The home, built in 2002, has six bedroom suites, including the master. There is a nine-car garage. It's as much resort as it it house, and downtown Austin is just a 12-minute drive away.
