4136 Dunhaven

Texas’ leading luxury custom home builder, Bella Vita Custom Homes, is thrilled to unveil its newest creation at 4136 Dunhaven in Midway Hollow. This turreted chateau of 5,043 square feet is offered at $1,090,000 and is one of very few custom homes currently available.

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.

In reflection of the country French style, this custom home is an arresting composition that features a prominent turret and half-timber half-dormer flanking the two-story stone entry portal. Inside, the 25-foot passage of the entry foyer leads past the mighty turreted staircase, beneath its wrap-around balcony, and past the double doors of the secluded study to the great central family room. This heart of family activity is ringed by the dining room, an embracing corner hearth and fireplace, an entry nook to the master suite, and glass doors out to the huge covered terrace with its outdoor fireplace, which effectively doubles the home’s living area. To the left, the ingeniously angled gourmet island kitchen is served by both plating and storage pantries, a home management office, and egress to the utility complex of mud room, laundry, and access to the double garage.

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!

To attend the Open House event, take Dallas North Tollway to Walnut Hill Lane. Take the Walnut Hill Lane exit and head west on Walnut Hill Lane. In 2.4 miles, turn left onto Midway Road.

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!

Bella Vita Custom Homes Presents 7619 Lovers Lane!

Categories: Custom and Intelligent Design, News | Posted: March 27, 2015

7619 Lovers Lane

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 6,800 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, offered at $1,720,000. It is replete with Spanish touches outside–stucco exterior, tile roof, stone-pillared balcony overlooking the street–and inside, with a barrel-vaulted passageway between the master suite and the breakfast room (an elegant way to greet the day) 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: granite counters in the kitchen, and French windows from the family room onto a 22-foot wide side courtyard. (Where did they find room for that on a town lot? By accessing the double garage from the alley: no boring driveway.) Four upstairs family bedrooms each has its own bath. They lie down the hall from a huge game room, and separately beyond that, a secluded media room/theatre with storeroom for the audiovisual equipment.

All this only 7 blocks from prestigious SMU, and only 1½ miles from some of the world’s best shopping at NorthPark Center.

For more information on 7619 Lovers Lane, contact Bella Vita‘s exceptional Sales Executives at 214.750.8482.
