Buyers Seeking Serenity and Sophistication Get Both with This McKinney Custom Home

The inside is luxurious and the outside is a piece of pure paradise.

Luxury home buyers looking to escape the hustle and bustle of Dallas without skimping on the sophistication of a nice piece of real estate need to check out this pristine property in McKinney’s Serenity neighborhood. This Drees Custom Home features the unique “Julian” floor plan that allows for maximum space to be enjoyed on only one level. It’s a major perk for those with young kiddos, because stairs can seriously be such a nightmare.

This home has custom features out the wazoo; however, we are really liking the fact that this home has options for its owners. For example, there is a breakfast nook that can be formal, casual, or cozy depending on the occasion. There is also a gorgeous, intimate room at the front of the home that could be used as a study, library, or music room depending on what you need it for. Its beautiful bay window showcases Serenity’s prized pond.

Other opulent features that make this property stand out include the hand scraped hardwoods and classic wainscot molding. There is also an iron-gated wine cellar and butler’s pantry that would be a total crowd pleaser during house parties – especially for the holidays. There is also a coffee bar to be enjoyed by the homeowners en route to the luxurious master retreat and bathroom.

The .50 acre corner lot is best enjoyed from the property’s exquisite yard which boasts views of shockingly colorful Texas foliage. Speaking of the backyard, it is hard to find a property of this size at this price point, and the future owners of the home will get to enjoy not only a large pool with waterfall but also a good-sized green space. There is a pergola-covered built-in grill and an outdoor living area perfect for enjoying a drink by the fire while watching the Cowboys.

Our only real question is: what time are you having us over for this year’s Super Bowl? That certainly gives you enough time to set up house, right?
