Estate-sized Belle Vista has inspiring look
Sunny, tropical climates spring to mind, standing in front of the Belle Vista. Soaring roof lines and intriguing window detailing draw eyes back for a second, third and even fourth admiring glance.
Part of the fascination is its sheer size -- more than 4,000 square feet of living space, not counting the basement or three-car garage. This estate-size plan boasts three huge gathering spaces plus a luxurious master suite, all on the ground floor. Three more spacious bedrooms are upstairs, each with a bathroom and walk-in closet.
Entering, you pass through a stately portico. Double doors open into a wide, window-rich, two-story foyer, transected by a balcony bridge that offers vistas to the front and rear.
Back on the main floor, double columns mark passageways to the dining room, master suite and two-story living room. Display hutches flank the fireplace, which can be enjoyed from the dining room as well as the living room. A den, located next to the master suite, could easily be used as a home office.
Kitchen and family room offer plenty of room to spread out. A long conversation bar rims one edge of an angled counter with two sinks. From the main sink, you have a panoramic view of the nook and family room, plus the two-level deck and beyond.
A second fireplace nestles between banks of cabinets designed to house a complete home entertainment center. Utilities are nearby in a large work space that connects to the garage.
The Belle Vista's elegant master suite boasts a private deck and a luxurious bathroom. Amenities here include: a spa tub, twin vanities, enclosed shower and toilet, and a large, double walk-in closet.
