I am going to check out some houses today at Allen and Lucas. They have backyards, but looks dull, dry and more like farm lands. This is what I was looking for. Not lucky enough I guess..

950 Crystal Cove, Oak Point TX For Sale - Trulia
I have been to a home in Fairview (north of Stacy Road, east of Greenville) that was in a gorgeous hilly, wooded neighborhood on a 2 acre lot. Not sure how much those cost or if anything is on the market now, but I would at least go drive around up there and see what you think.

Too small backyard or property under contract already. Thanks for the link though.

Why do you have to have so much land anyway?

I guess OP wants to pay high property taxes in order to have a huge backyard that he has to mow and water all summer...?

Weird.

2-acre lots around here are purple squirrels.

Commute and Lawn maint. are different issues, however Flower Mound property tax (2.21%) is lower than Richardson (2.63%) without homestead exemption.

I meant that OP will pay more in property taxes because of the larger lot, not because of where it is located. Homestead gives a price break on the value of the house, not on the land value.
