Where can you find a luxury, Texas Hill Country inspired home in a guarded neighborhood, less than 15 miles from downtown Fort Worth, with tranquil views, and the ability to park a dozen vehicles?  If you guessed Tarrant County then you are correct!

9572 Bella Terra Drive is a 7,500-square-foot home with six bedrooms, eight bathrooms, two half bathrooms, seven (that’s right, I said seven) living areas, three fireplaces, a pool, spa, and parking bays for at least 10 vehicles!  If space is what you want, space is what you get with this home.

Is there anything more beautiful than a Texas sunset?

It only makes sense that this large, elegant home was designed by Fort Worth architect Dale Grandmaison of Grand Home Designs, Inc. (FYI for you non-French speakers, “Grand maison” means “big home”)

This home is located in the guarded community of Montserrat, a distinctive residential neighborhood in west Fort Worth that features a 24-hour guarded gate house, private parks, ponds stocked for fishing, as well as green spaces for picnic and play.  Residents can enjoy a majority of Fort Worth premier nightlife, schools, shops and restaurants all within 13 miles of the Montserrat entrance.

The interior of 9572 Bella Terra Drive is filled with the finishes and materials you come to expect from homes in this price range.  Wide, quarter-sawn hardwood floors, soaring ceilings with wooden beams, and liberal use of travertine floors give the home a very comfortable and “inside-outside” feel, which is a perfect feeling because as soon as you enter this home, you are immediately drawn to the picturesque views from the large covered patio.

If you enjoy outdoor living then you will love 9572 Bella Terra.  The deep-and-wide covered patio not only overlooks a beautiful lagoon-shaped salt water swimming pool, spa, slide with water features, but also acres and acres of undeveloped Texas Hill Country-looking land which is just breathtaking.  At times you will even see wild turkey and horses prancing through the fields.

This is only part of the motor court with 10 bays and ability to have car lift inside one garage!

For the car aficionados out there, this is the home for you.  Driving through the gated entrance into the private motor court you will find two three-car garages plus an additional four covered bays to house your four-wheeled beauties.  But wait, there’s more! One of the three-car garages has elevated ceilings and previously was outfitted with multiple car lifts.  It’s not any ordinary garage, either.  It comes complete with air conditioning, access to a private bathroom, an office, and a cinder block safe room perfect for valuables, ammunition, or protection from tornadoes.  The only missing items now are the vehicles themselves.

Only in Tarrant County can you find these views within 15 minutes of downtown Fort Worth

This truly grand maison at 9572 Bella Terra Drive is presented by Taryn Wilson of Virginia Cook Realtors in Fort Worth.  The home is listed for $1.99 million.  You can contact Taryn at 817-665-1222.
