Texas’ leading luxury custom builder, Bella Vita Custom Homes, is thrilled to unveil its newest creation at 5707 Charlestown Drive in exclusive Preston Hollow. It is an imaginative Mediterranean villa of 5,180 square feet, and is one of very few custom homes currently available.
Bella Vita will welcome the public to this Open House event Saturday, January 31st and on Sunday, February 1st. Mimosas and gourmet pastries will be offered from 10:00 am 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 fine wine and cheese provided by Dallas Fine Wine & Spirits from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm on both days.
This monumental house is appreciated from multiple angles on its prominent corner lot, and what the exterior promises, the interior immediately delivers in the powerful three-story round foyer with its curved staircase, lit from above by a rank of clerestory windows. In fact, with the formal dining room and secluded study with fireplace to the right of the foyer, and the guest room with bath and private garage to the left, the whole front of the house forms a grand guest suite for company.
Straight through the foyer, a superb groin-vaulted passageway leads to the enormous living area, 25 feet square. Here the regal, 6-foot cast stone mantel and private family stairs draw the eye up to the wood-beamed ceiling, 18 feet above. Beyond this the master suite looks out a great bow window, and leads to a breathtaking master bath floored in travertine marble, with an oval garden bathtub and romantic stone grotto shower for two.
On the other side of the family room the breakfast nook connects to a chef’s dream of a kitchen, with four separate work stations, 48 inch professional Viking range, and twin pantries, one for storage and the other an old-time butler’s pantry for serving the formal dining room. Upstairs, three family bedrooms, each with private bath, cluster around twin game and media rooms with audiovisual storage and full wet bar.
Offered at $1,498,000, never was a house designed for such gracious entertaining, formal or informal, refined or festive!
