Starting from the fact that the Lone Star State leads the nation with the most Fortune 500 companies, there’s no doubt there’s an abundance of wealth in Texas. With 53 Fortune 500 corporate headquarters and more businesses relocating and expanding throughout the state, the list of the state’s well-to-do residents includes such personalities as Bert Beveridge, founder of Tito’s Vodka; Michael Dell, CEO of Dell; and Alice Walton, an heir to the Walmart fortune heir.

This month, you’ll find homes ranging from $10.5 million to $24.5 million, located from Austin to Dallas to Houston, among HAR’s 10 Most Expensive Single-Family Home Listings. And if you watched HBO’s House of Ho, then you know there’s no shortage of glitz, glam, and fortune right here in Houston, so it’s no surprise to see that two of the homes on the list are for sale here in Bayou City. 

Here's a closer look at two of Texas’s most expensive single-family home listings.
