MONDAY – SATURDAY from 10am – 6pm

SUNDAYS 12pm – 6pm


Talk about your blessings in disguise: one hundred years ago, Dallas refused to annex the brand new village of Highland Park, five miles north of the central city. They regretted this immediately and spent the next 45 years trying to undo their mistake. Highland Park, however, preferred to go its independent and exclusive way. Designed with a lavish 20% set-aside for parkland by the famous landscape architect Wilbur David Cook (he also designed Beverly Hills), Highland Park and its slightly newer sibling, University Park, have long hosted the most sought-after addresses in the area.

After a century’s reign as the locus of Dallas society, it is astonishing that there should still be any lots left to build on; typically one only comes available after removing an older structure. And of these, 7619 Lovers Lane is a jewel: it lies on the cusp between the two cities, enjoying the convenience of Dallas zoning laws, but belonging to the Highland Park Independent School District-the smallest and smartest in the county: only 7,022 students with SAT scores 50% higher than in surrounding Dallas.

At 5,606 square feet, this gracious hacienda takes maximum advantage of its University Park lot and is now offered for $1,449,900!!!  Replete with Spanish touches outside–stucco exterior, tile roof, stone-pillared balcony overlooking the street–and inside, with an art gallery leading to the master suite and an accent on gracious entertaining, with a formal dining room served from the butler’s pantry.

Functionally the home features all the attention to convenience that one expects from Bella Vita: circular driveway at the front of the home, granite counters in the kitchen, and double French doors from the family room onto a 22-foot wide side patio. (Where did they find room for that on a town lot? By accessing the double garage from the alley.) Four upstairs family bedrooms each has its own bath and walk-in closet. They lie down the hall from a huge game room, and separately beyond that, a secluded media room with storeroom for the audiovisual equipment.

All this only 7 blocks from prestigious SMU, 1.5 miles from some of the world’s best shopping at NorthPark Center and only 6 miles from downtown Dallas!

As featured in D Magazine’s Home & Design Blog, this available custom home offers every necessity & luxury imagined!!!

With its quiet boulevards, expansive green space and nationally recognized school district, the residential enclave of Highland Park was designed to attract the area’s most distinguished families. Worthy of its location, this Mediterranean villa redefines “luxury living” within its prominent neighborhood. Just inside the entry, a formal dining room, and a secluded study with fireplace offering a contemplative retreat. Beyond the powder room, staircase and 3-stop elevator lies Bella Vita’s trademark open living area, which extends the entire width of the house. The family room with fireplace extends beyond to a covered patio with outdoor fireplace; the vast chef’s kitchen includes double kitchen islands with top of the line Viking appliances, and accesses the breakfast room, home management office, and butler’s pantry with wet bar that serves the formal dining room.

Upstairs three family bedrooms cluster about a loft and game room with wet bar, and the master suite with its bath complex of every luxury imaginable. And still above this, a 3rd floor eyrie with its own bath can flex as guest suite, studio, library, hobby room or gymnasium–exactly the kind of bonus one expects from Bella Vita Custom Homes.

As one of very few luxury custom homes currently available and ready for immediate move-in, this imaginative Mediterranean villa sits just under 7,000 square feet and is offered at $2,749,000!


3502 LINDENWOOD AVENUE, HIGHLAND PARK, TEXAS 75205

3502 Lindenwood Highland Park 3502 Lindenwood Highland Park 3502 Lindenwood Highland Park 3502 Lindenwood Highland Park 3502 Lindenwood Highland Park 3502 Lindenwood Highland Park 3502 Lindenwood Highland Park 3502 Lindenwood Highland Park 3502 Lindenwood Highland Park 3502 Lindenwood Highland Park 3502 Lindenwood Highland Park 3502 Lindenwood Highland Park 3502 Lindenwood Highland Park 3502 Lindenwood Highland Park 3502 Lindenwood Highland Park 3502 Lindenwood Highland Park 3502 Lindenwood Highland Park 3502 Lindenwood Highland Park 3502 Lindenwood Highland Park 3502 Lindenwood Highland Park 3502 Lindenwood Highland Park 3502 Lindenwood Highland Park 3502 Lindenwood Highland Park 3502 Lindenwood Highland Park 3502 Lindenwood Highland Park 3502 Lindenwood Highland Park 3502 Lindenwood Highland Park 3502 Lindenwood Highland Park 3502 Lindenwood Highland Park 3502 Lindenwood Highland Park

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, 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, 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 walk-in 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 theater.

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 $2,215,000!
