In the north
of Texas, near the town of McKinney, the town of Adriatica Village sprung up, next to Stonebridge Lake.
The town is considered a prototype for the most revolutionary concept in the
development real-estate. The investor behind these neo-retro villas is American Jeffory Blackard. The villas were made in the
style of old Dalmatian houses, with an interior aimed at comfort. Several
authentic pieces were brought from Brač, such as bells, and the streets
there are named Mediteranska, Dalmatinska, and Istina. Despite their high price, they continue to sell well. Jeffory Blackard
doesn’t hide his love for the Dalmatian coast and its architecture. This is
why, as he himself said, he built the Adriatica Village, inspired by Supetar on Brač, in honor of our homeland.
