Just when you think Italy is more than an ocean away, we are here to report that it’s only a few miles north of Dallas. We first spied this Tuscan-inspired retreat on Candy’s Dirt, so we decided to take a closer look inside.

This secluded property, named “Nostro Destino” (“our destiny”), is located at 1809 Provine Rd. in McKinney. It was designed and built by a local artist and her entrepreneur husband following a romantic trip through the Italian countryside.

Once smitten by the tranquility they experienced on their Tuscan getaway, they chose this 4-acre, heavily treed lot in a private gated community and began to build their dream home. It took three years to complete.

This house takes your breath away before you even walk inside, with a stocked pond, lush landscaping, and a pool entertaining area complete with swim-up bar and outdoor kitchen. When you do finally head into the home, you soon notice the couple spared no expense. The 7,600-square-foot hideaway has five bedrooms and four-and-a-half baths, as well as an endless list of features such as heated floors, wine cellar, and room after room of Italian architecture.

“Antique architectural pieces are incorporated throughout the house, as are unique artistic offerings from all over the world, such as the tile ‘Persian-style’ rug in the formal dining room,” says agent Myla Patton of the Provine Farms Estates beauty.

What will something like this cost you in McKinney? It’s listed at 1,699,900 and priced to sell, should you want to trade in your city digs for a little bit of Italy right here in Texas.
