While Sherman may be thousands of miles from the Mediterranean, a 5,703-square-foot estate situated near FM 1417 shares many of characteristics imaginable in a house overlooking a sleepy seaside Italian village but on a grander scale.


With living spaces that open to the outdoors and interior rooms that flow into each other, Century 21 Realtor Elizabeth Young said the house was built for entertaining. The four-bedroom, six and a half-bathroom house sits on 3.9 acres at 610 Cinrose Lane.


“In the living room of the house, all of the doors slide completely open to make the house open to the outside,” Young said. “So you can entertain inside and outside.”


The stucco Mediterranean-style house was built in 2007 and is priced at $849,000. The house includes living areas, a kitchen, a dining area, a breakfast nook, office, a four-car garage and on the second floor a media room/home theater with a balcony. It also has a guesthouse-like suite that has its own kitchen, garage, living area and bathroom.


The kitchen has three sinks with a sink located on the central island and a smaller sink on the bar overlooking a living space. The kitchen includes a commercial range with double ovens and plenty of countertop space.


The kitchen opens up to a living room that has a vaulted ceiling and built in cabinets for an entertainment center. The entire space is surrounded by windows and sliding doors looking out onto the large property.


“It’s obviously a beautiful custom home throughout the entire thing,” Young said. “There a couple of things I like best about it. One, it has a his and hers master bathroom, so there are two separate bathrooms.”


Young said the master bathroom features two separate spaces with individual closets for the heads of the household. The shower, she said, is more walk around than walk in as it’s curved with frosted-glass windows looking out to a walled outdoor space. Young noted that the area is plumbed for a garden tub or whatever the buyer prefers.


Along a section of the house is a walled-in courtyard that features a wood-burning fireplace next to flower beds and a stone floor. The courtyard connects to the backyard and covered patios.


The entry of the house opens to a large living area with a fireplace and a formal dining room. Young said the house can entertain large gatherings with the open spaces that easily connect to the outdoors.


“It would be a great house for someone who loved to cook and entertain,” Young said.
