Texas’ leading luxury custom home builder, Bella Vita Custom Homes, is thrilled to unveil its’ newest American craftsman residence located in the M Streets on 5424 Willis Avenue. As one of fifteen custom homes currently available, Bella Vita will host this open house event Saturday, October 25th and Sunday, October 26th. Mimosas and gourmet pastries will be offered from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 pm on Saturday, and from 12:00 pm to 2:00 pm on Sunday. Those who can attend later in the day will be treated to wine and cheese from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm on both days.
At 4,148 square feet and listing for $869,990, this custom home is a true classic American craftsman. The exterior of the home has a front porch, with stone bases beneath tapered wooden pillars, exposed rafter tails, layered rooflines and a standing-seam metal roof. Inside, the floor plan is as bold and innovative as the exterior is nostalgic. Designed for entertaining, upon opening the front door an unbroken 53-foot vista is revealed stretching from the living area through to the rear of the kitchen. The eye, however, returns to the dining area, which is in part separated from the kitchen by a digitally fabricated, custom-built, wine cellar “wall.”
“The design concept was to develop a craftsman influenced, functional wine rack” says the Bella Vita‘s architect. “By utilizing the latest software in computer-aided design and computer aided manufacturing, this unique installation will serve as a functional art piece causing an unexpected moment of interest within this classic American home.“
Gracious hosting is further augmented by the large kitchen with island and bar with access to the open courtyard. The secluded master suite beyond the kitchen features a vast walk-in closet with twin bays for his and hers, and a sumptuous bathroom with twin basins, and both shower and garden tub. Upstairs, three bedrooms share the space with a two-room game and media suite.
A perfect combination of traditional Craftsman bungalow on the outside, and a dramatic and innovative traffic flow within. Traditionally, in the 1920s and ’30s, bungalows often extended deep into their narrow city lots, and Bella Vita has equally chosen to maximize this prime lot, only 3 miles north of the heart of downtown Dallas.
To attend the open house event, take US-75 to exit North Henderson Avenue/Knox Street. Head west on Knox Street and turn left onto Willis Avenue. In half a mile, the home is located on the right.
