Beautiful “Bella Vista”! Step up to luxury and all it has to offer! “Bella Vista” offers an unexpected mix of formality and casual elegance. It is timeless and romantic with a quiet sense of drama. You will want to sit in all the rooms and enjoy the view of this stunning interior. The moment you enter you will capture a view of the lake through glass walls under towering ceilings and arches supported by stately Doric columns.
“Bella Vista” is nestled on the shores of Lake Butler, part of a chain of 8 lakes connected by navigable canals and just perfect for boating, water sports and fishing – or just sitting and catching the cool lake breezes from your Boat House or outdoor Terrace. The exterior responds to the surge in demand for Mediterranean architecture where a large tiered fountain greets you as you enter the brick entrance.
This is a newly designed floor plan, specifically designed for this lakefront site! An open floor plan, where in the absence of walls, living spaces are defined by arches supported by columns under two-story ceilings where marble floor seamlessly flow into different living areas and where open staircases, banded in elaborate iron, gracefully ascend to a large balcony, secondary bedrooms and a 21’ game room with a lakefront balcony! Exciting and simply beautiful! The grand master bedroom suite is located on the first floor overlooking the lake and adjoins a luxurious marble bath which uniquely offers a private iron staircase leading to the master’s retreat-lounge area! In addition, on the opposing side of the floor plan, tucked away in a private area is a handsome study with wet bar, wine cooler and a fabulous view of the fountain entry.
This lakefront estate boasts a detached, large Guest House. As you leave the Main House, you will walk through an open colonnade leading to the Guest House, and you will pass a magnificent Koi pond framed by specimen, tropical plants – all this is created with a touch of Zen offering a tranquil setting for your guests. The Guest House has its own lakefront Terrace with a fireplace for further enjoyment!
Last of all the Main house has its own Lakefront Terrace and a heated Pool and Spa for year-round enjoyment, a private Boat House with hoist and room for lakefront seating.
