Head north to McKinney to discover a magnificent Mediterranean with panoramic views of Kings Lake and every luxurious detail a buyer could want. 

The house at 537 Sea Side Ln., located in the Adriatica Villa District, is a rare find with four bedrooms, three bathrooms, two half baths, three living areas, an office, and 6,593 square feet on two stories, including an oversized wine cellar.

The Adriatica Villa District is a mixed-use development near Virginia Parkway and South Stonebridge Drive in McKinney. From this property, you can walk to several restaurants and shopping, never leaving the feel of a Mediterranean village. 

From its stately curb appeal to the interior touches, this house is exquisite. A charmed courtyard greets and the craftsmanship is evident throughout, from the gate door to the wine cellar’s stonework. This house was built without compromise.

Inside, you’ll find travertine tile, crown molding, rich hardwood floors, and high-end finish outs — everything is tastefully done and works together cohesively to create a comfortable, luxe feel.  

A custom wrought iron front door opens into a cozy living area with a balcony overlooking it and stairs leading down to the wine cellar and up to bedrooms, media room, and game room. Walk back into another living room with its custom millwork, a beamed ceiling, and fireplace. You will never tire of the panoramic water views here!
