103 Stone Shadow Cove

103 Stone Shadow Cove

Texas leading luxury custom home builder, Bella Vita Custom Homes, is thrilled to unveil their newest creation at 103 Stone Shadow Cove in Lakeway, Texas!

At 5,486 square feet, this imaginative Mediterranean villa sits on a 0.8 acre cul-de-sac in stunning Watersedge of Rough Hollow. Through the porte-cochere, an old fashioned motor court serves three garages with a total of four bays. Inside, the formal front suite — study with fireplace, formal dining room and guest room – radiate around the 3-story foyer with sweeping staircase.

Straight through the foyer, a groin-vaulted passageway leads to the enormous living area. Here the regal, 6-foot cast stone fireplace and private family stairs draw the eye up to the wood-beamed ceiling, 18 feet above. The generous breakfast room connects the family room to the gourmet kitchen with two islands, four separate work stations, butler’s and storage pantries, and top-of-the-line appliances.

On the other side of the family room, the excluded master suite looks out a great bow window to astonishing views. Past the twin vanities inside the master bathroom, an oval garden tub is centered between a romantic stone grotto for two.

Upstairs, three family bedrooms, each with private bath and walk-in closet, cluster around the massive game room with double doors leading into the home theatre with audiovisual storage closet. Complete with a full wet bar, the game and media rooms serve as an extension of the hosting and entertainment areas downstairs. And, all these amenities are capped off with a luxurious swimming pool!

Offered at $1,475,000, this luxury custom home is available for immediate move-in! For a limited time, Bella Vita Custom Homes is offering the buyer $40,000 to apply toward closing costs, interest rate buy-down, price reduction on the home–or even, courtesy of Town & Country Leather–furniture! Hurry, this offer expires on December 31, 2015!

Bella Vita’s Gracious Hacienda on 7619 Lovers Lane is Now Offered at $1,597,500!!!

Categories: News | Posted: November 6, 2015

7619 Lovers LaneTalk 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.

Bella Vita Custom Homes has taken maximum advantage of this lot with a gracious hacienda: 5,606 square feet and the homes offer price has just been reduced to $1,597,500!!!  It is 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!

 7619 Lovers Lane will be open on Saturday, November 7th from 12PM to 2PM and on Sunday, November 8th from 2PM to 4PM!

Bella Vita Custom Homes Introduces Luxury Lifestyle Magazine, Live Beautifully, to Westlake!

Categories: Custom and Intelligent Design, News, Remodeling | Posted: October 2, 2015

“For we imagine custom homes that will reflect the character, passion & private pursuits of their owners.” -Andy Clem, CEO

Why do people come build their lives in Texas? Two time-honored hallmarks of Texas heritage are friendship and opportunity. Texans are legendary for their hospitality; the states very name comes from an Indian word meaning “friend”. Today as the biggest state in the lower 48, Texas is still synonymous with elbow room, personal freedom and the pursuit of happiness. For centuries, Texas has been the place where people come to do better for themselves. Having come here, who would not want to provide the best for their families, to provide them the luxuries and leisure that result from hard work rightly rewarded? In housing and remodeling, the best is found by having ones’ needs anticipated and addressed. At Bella Vita Custom Homes and Remodeling, we understand building a custom home and remodeling a home is one of the most significant financial decisions a family will ever make. We are committed to listening attentively, working hard, and adding true value through out collective expertise and passion.

Since our inception, Bella Vita Custom Homes and Remodeling has maintained a standard of excellence and luxury few can match. The name, meaning “beautiful life,” was well chosen, for we imagined custom homes that would reflect the status of our owners, living in residences that embraced their values, their accomplishments, their personal growth and their private pursuits.

We wanted to take this concept event further and are proud to announce the first issue of our Southlake + Westlake edition of our luxury lifestyle magazine, Live Beautifully. This publication is designed specifically for those who value the beautiful life as much as we do. Within our first issue, you will find our newest available custom homes, community events, and an introduction to our most recent ventures, Bella Vita Custom Remodeling and Living Water Custom Pools. With our refined design and exquisite styles, Bella Vita Custom Homes and Remodeling is revolutionizing the face of modern luxury living. Through these pages we invite you to experience the sensation of Living Beautifully.

Categories: News | Posted: August 14, 2015


2633 Round Table

Imagine designing your absolute dream home, from the ground up, with every amenity you can conjure up–which the clients of Bella Vita Custom Homes typically do anyway, but imagine dreaming it, and finding it already built for you!

First, you might locate it in burgeoning Lewisville, equally convenient to the cultural offerings of both Dallas and Fort Worth. Second, you might have the lot widen out at the back to a spacious 135 feet looking down onto a luxury golf course. Third, you would include the most natural-looking pool imaginable, with spa. Fourth, you might design it in the most relaxed, gracious Mediterranean style, with white stucco and red tile roof. Fifth, you even might envision two double garages, with bays for four vehicles.

Well, open your eyes and meet 2633 Round Table Boulevard, Bella Vita‘s breathtaking accomplishment in Lewisville. The entry faces an elegant circular driveway. Inside, a two-story foyer passes a secluded study, a formal dining room with French windows onto a front terrace, and a dramatic winder staircase. Beyond lies the family room, open to the second story, with its fireplace and French windows to the rear covered terrace. To the left lie the breakfast room with passage to the home theatre and guest room, and the breathtaking kitchen with its island bar, professional-grade appliances, and a storage pantry literally the size of most bedrooms. An ingenious dining hall includes the butler’s plating pantry to serve the dining room, and bartender’s access to the wet bar with generous wine cabinet that serves the family room. Down the right side of the house the master suite includes the vast bedroom with boxed beam ceiling and sitting alcove, a bathing suite with free standing tub, separate shower with seat, and his and hers vanities and walk-in closets.

Upstairs, three family bedrooms, each with full bath and walk-in closet, cluster about a game room with its closed-off homework suite, covered second-floor balcony, and private stair down to the home theatre.

This 6,563 square foot masterpiece lists for only $1,699,990!

Bella Vita Custom Homes Unveils Newest Available Home in Highland Park!

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.

At the rear of the home the elegant master suite features its own door to the covered terrace, and a sumptuous bath with twin basins, both shower and garden bathtub, and an echoing walk-in closet that is larger than most bedrooms. Upstairs, three family bedrooms cluster about the game room with its wet bar, and the short flight of steps up to the home theatre. At the head of the stairs, however, a homework nook with study carrel makes sure that lessons are done before the fun begins!
