Categories: News, Recent Events | Posted: July 30, 2015

3502 Lindenwood Avenue, Highland Park, TX

Texas’ leading luxury custom home builder, Bella Vita Custom Homes and Rogers Healy and Associates are thrilled to host an Open House event at their newly constructed masterpiece on 3502 Lindenwood Avenue in exclusive Highland Park. Visitors are invited to enjoy mimosas and gourmet pastries from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, August 1st and from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday, August 2nd. During afternoon tours, fine wine varietals and cheese medleys will be served from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. on both days.

The modest front of Palladian symmetry at Bella Vita’s beautiful new offering at 3502 Lindenwood packs a powerful punch: 5,359 square feet with a heavy roster of amenities. From the front door, a barrel vaulted passageway leads past double doors to the secluded study with fireplace, opposite the arch to the formal dining room, served from the kitchen by a butler’s plating pantry. Beyond the winder staircase lies the heart of the house, an open family room complex that extends the full width of the house, from the exquisite fireplace on the right to the island-bar kitchen on the left, kitted out with top-grade professional appliances. The family room is augmented by French windows to the covered patio with outdoor fireplace, a full walk-in wet bar with built-in wine cellar, and a breakfast room beyond the kitchen with its elevator to the upper floors. At the rear, a three-car garage is accessed from the alley.

Top of the stairs to the left, an arch accesses a cozy sitting room that lends extra privacy to the sumptuous master suite. This features a bedchamber replete with built-ins, that faces a dedicated television niche, a luxurious bathing and dressing suite with his-and-hers vanities, freestanding bathtub with separate seated shower, and a vast closet with private, hidden access to the laundry center.

Top of the stairs to the right, a matching arch leads into a dramatic corridor past three family bedrooms, each with full bath and walk-in closet, and the laundry center, culminating in an art niche that offsets entry to the second floor’s focal point: a two-story entertainment complex. Here a guest room (or hobby room or fifth bedroom) adjoins a spacious 16×20 game room, with stairs (or elevator) up to the third-floor home theatre.

This luxury custom home resides within the Highland Park Independent School System, is walkable distance from the Katy Trail and Knox/Henderson area, and is only 5 miles from downtown Dallas! As one of very few luxury custom homes currently available, this Mediterranean Estate is offered at $2,619,000!

To attend the Open House event take US-75 to exit 2 toward Henderson Ave/Knox St. Head west onto Knox St. Turn right onto Abbott Ave. In 0.2 miles, turn left onto Auburndale Ave. In 375 feet, turn left onto Lindenwood Ave. The home is located on the right at 3502 Lindenwood Avenue, Highland Park, TX 75205.

Bella Vita Custom Homes Celebrates Show Home Grand Openings!

Categories: News, Recent Events, Remodeling | Posted: May 22, 2015

Bella Vita Show Homes

Texas’ leading luxury custom home builder, Bella Vita Custom Homes, is beyond thrilled to have unveiled their two newest Show Homes this spring! Bella Vita’s Preston Hollow Show Home, located on 5947 Park Lane in Dallas, was unveiled this past April. Bella Vita‘s Westlake Show Home, located on 2 Paigebrooke in Westlake, was unveiled this past May. With such an unbelievable turnout, Bella Vita Custom Homes would like to thank all those who came out and made each grand opening such a success!

Bella Vita‘s newest Preston Hollow Show Home is appreciated from multiple angles on its prominent corner lot, and what the exterior promises the interior immediately delivers. What in most houses would be the front door is a colonnaded, covered veranda with a 1,500 square foot entry courtyard that instantly showcases the homes old world elegance. This entry courtyard connects the guest suite to the main house and is comprised of an arbored terrace with outdoor fireplace. Upon entering the home’s actual front door one experiences a breathtaking two-story entry with sweeping staircase. Never has an entry been so unexpected and elegant at once.

Immediately beyond the entry foyer is an open living and entertaining area featuring a cascade of Bella Vita’s signature features: eighteen-foot beamed ceiling in the family room, a sunny breakfast room, a chef’s kitchen with professional range, twin dishwashers perfectly placed within the massive kitchen island, a spice cabinet that swings aside to enter a large pantry, a butler’s pantry seamlessly connecting the kitchen with the formal dining room, and an impressive wine cellar to show off the vintage collection.

A principal feature of the formal area is Bella Vita‘s hallmark two-story study with fireplace, circular stairs up to a wraparound library balcony, and a hidden bookshelf door into a hidden parlor with transom windows and wet bar.

Further on to the left one enters the master suite corridor. This vaulted passageway connects the master bedchamber with the mudroom, private access to both garages, and backstairs up to the family bedrooms. Augmenting the master bedroom with its twelve-foot ceiling are its romantic fireplace, a roomy exercise room with French windows out to the lawn, a dressing room with sit-down vanity, a vast closet with private laundry, and a sumptuous bathroom with freestanding oval tub, separate shower and twin basins.

Upstairs, three family bedrooms, each with private bath and walk-in closet, cluster around a homework loft–with three study carrels. As a reward for completing assignments, there are also a playroom with big-screen television alcove, a separate home theatre and media center, and a secluded hobby room with transom windows onto the colonnaded balcony overlooking the courtyard.

At 7,417 square feet, this custom French Estate is valued at $2,500,000. Not to be rivaled, Bella Vita‘s Westlake Show Home at 2 Paigebrooke is valued at more than $3,100,000, making both show homes two of the most expensive and impressive show homes in the state!

“Our Show Homes are fully furnished and operational for viewing seven days a week,” says company CEO, Andy Clem. “Typically, you don’t see show homes of this value, but this approach gives customers the ability to touch, feel and believe in our product!”

Like a true Roman villa, it is entered through a peristyle, and indoor-outdoor passageway between the outside and an interior colonnaded courtyard called an atrium. A typical Roman atrium had a fountain at its center. Check: got the colonnade, got the fountain.

A second entry at the right rear of the courtyard opens into a foyer between two pavilions: to the right is the entertainment area, featuring a game room with wet bar, which connects to a home theatre. At the end of a beamed corridor is second small pavilion contains an area for privacy and reflection: a library with fireplace, and a parlor reached through a secret panel, which has a secluded covered porch. Like a good villa, the foyer stairs lead up to a range of family bedrooms.

To the left of the foyer, Bella Vita’s trademark open family living area forms a third pavilion of living and dining rooms, and kitchen with island, bar and Viking appliances. The fourth quadrant of the house is the master’s suite, as large as the living area. It is reached through a groin vaulted vestibule; you will be tempted to lean back and relax in the sumptuous garden bath. The fourth side of the courtyard is completed with a self-contained guest house with bath and kitchenette, and a four car garage—room for your entire fleet!

Bella Vita Custom Homes would like to thank all those who made each Show Home grand opening such a success! Both Show Homes are now open seven days a week! Monday through Saturday, 10AM to 6PM and Sundays noon to 6PM!
