In the Spring of 2014, my husband Brian and I made the decision to search for a new home; something bigger, with more yard, better finish-out, and fabulous outdoor living spaces. Ideally, we hoped to find a brand new home, in our price range, and in our preferred location. For two months, our search yielded very little and our enthusiasm began to wane; I had even begun deleting the automated MLS emails that came my way, announcing ‘just listed’ homes that met our specifications. Then, in a moment of divine luck, I decided to open one of those emails instead of deleting it, and suddenly our search was over.
We fell in love with the floor plan and the finish-out. The house was built by MainVue Homes – a builder neither of us were familiar with at the time. We soon learned MainVue Homes was a newcomer to the McKinney builder community as well as to some of the surrounding North Texas suburbs. In a sea of local builders with recognizable names and lengthy tenures, MainVue Homes quickly set themselves apart from the rest of the crew by offering modern lines and a luxury finish-out that comes standard with every home.
MainVue Homes is a luxury sub-brand of the highly regarded Henley Properties Group, the largest home builder in Australia. They are also proud to partner with the Sumitomo Forestry Group, a centuries-old timber and housing corporation in Japan. These cross-continental alliances allow MainVue Homes access to superlative options in international design and global real estate trends, giving their customers, “distinctive, bold and luxury home designs at the best value.” When it comes to included premier upgrades, the MainVue difference is everywhere.
The kitchens are decidedly epicurean in nature. Grand butler pantries, oversized kitchen islands, and Electrolux appliances come standard in each floorplan, as do stainless steel undermounted sinks with quartz countertops. A modern European design concept is carried throughout with opulent freestanding soaking tubs and elegant lighting to illuminate his and her vanities in the master bathroom. Every detail has been carefully selected to continue the luxurious atmosphere throughout the home, including the designer color schemes and organic textures accenting the vaulted ceilings and expansive entry ways.
The United States was introduced to MainVue Homes in 2011 when the corporate offices opened in Washington state. Four years later, MainVue broke ground in North Texas. They currently have 12 stunning model homes available for viewing in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. For model home locations, please visit their website, mainvuehomes.com.
