Casa Kulanu

Casa Kulanu is a collaboration between interior designer Rela Gleason and architect Bobby McAlpine.

This one is a restored historic southern home located in McKinney. The wraparound porch is heavenly, and it even boasts a pool complete with large pool house. It's gorgeous, and can be yours!
