Texas’ leading builder of customized luxury residences, Bella Vita Custom Homes, is thrilled to welcome the public to open house events at two of their most distinguished and innovative creations this weekend. Located in the fashionable M Streets, 5407 Belmont Avenue is a striking interpretation of the distinctive architecture of the Texas Hill Country, while 5424 Willis Avenue is a wonderfully retro visitation of the craftsman bungalow style that dominated American home building nearly a century ago and has never lost its popularity.
Both homes will be open at 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 21st and from 12:00 pm until 6:00 p.m. on Sunday, February 22nd. Guests can enjoy mimosas and gourmet pastries until 2 p.m. each day, with wine and cheese offered later in the afternoons.
At 3,550 square feet and offered at $809,999, 5407 Belmont recalls the Hill Country with its limestone construction, fortress-like front portal, and standing-seam metal roof. Inside, the traffic flow is modern and the features dramatic, beginning with a 33-foot long gallery wall illuminated from a second-story light well to feature treasured art. Downstairs, both formal and informal living areas share space with a sumptuous master suite, and upstairs family bedrooms enjoy the massive game and media suite. To reach this splendid home, take US-75 to Exit 2, North Henderson/Knox Street. Head east on North Henderson Avenue and turn left onto Belmont; the home is located 0.2 miles on the left.
The bungalow at 5424 Willis is a spacious 4,148 square feet and is offered at $849,000. Instantly recognized on the outside as a craftsman masterpiece by its tapered wooden pillars, exposed rafter tails and layered rooflines, inside the home employs every turn and feature of Bella Vita’s reputation to design for hearty entertaining: not just an open living area, but an unbroken, 53-foot vista from the entry to the rear of the kitchen, including a digitally fabricated, custom-built wine cellar “wall.” With the luxurious, secluded master suite downstairs, the upstairs family bedrooms cluster about Bella Vita’s signature 2-room game and home theater suite. From US-75, take Exit 2 onto North Henderson/Knox Street. Head east on North Henderson Avenue and turn left onto Willis Avenue. In 0.5 miles, this craftsman bungalow is located on the right.
