The 2017 Fort Worth Magazine Summer Dream Home – a 6,700-square-foot Spanish modern transitional underway in Westlake’s luxury Granada development – will open for tours in July.

Vesta Custom Homes, award-winning project manager Brandon Crawford, interior designer AVID Associates, and a team of vendors are putting the finishing touches on the Dream Home at 2017 Granada Trail in Westlake’s Granada development, overlooking the Entrada European Village.

Finishes include flooring from Vintage Floors, appliances from Expressions Home Gallery, cabinets from Chip’s Cabinets, countertops from KLZ Stone, front entry from Durango Doors, fabrication from Century Granite and Marble, fireplace by Metro Brick & Stone, hardware by Pierce Fine Decorative Hardware and Plumbing, kitchen cabinets by The Kitchen Source, lighting by Passion Lighting and Ferguson Enterprises, plumbing fixtures by Ferguson, paint and labor by Sherwin Williams and J&V Painting, retractable shade by Southwest Shade Solutions, tile by Daltile, and windows by Texas Custom Window & Door.

Watercrest Pools is building the pool, and Guardado Landscaping is designing the landscape and irrigation. AVID is buffing up the living spaces for the tours and sale of the home. Among our vendors, Fort Worth Billiards is providing the pool table and Yard Art, the patio furniture.

Dream Home is being marketed at $2.495 million by Dona Robinson Associates at Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty, the magazine’s official Dream Home Realtor.

The home will be open for tours June 28-July 16, with ticket prices benefiting a Wish with Wings, which grants wishes to ill children.

Tickets are $20 apiece, which includes a one-year subscription to the magazine. Tours will be available Wednesday-Sunday, but not Mondays and Tuesdays.


The home is the latest in the magazine’s ongoing Dream Home series. The magazine teams with a builder who builds the home on spec with a group of high-end vendors who put in everything from the floors to the appliances and swimming pool.

Dream Home has two bedrooms upstairs and three downstairs, including the master suite. The transitional flourishes come off of an open floor plan that brings the outside in.

Folding door systems off of the family room and game and media room expand the footprint of the living space. Other features include an outdoor kitchen and an acrylic wine area inside, which Vesta’s Curt DuBose calls a “free-floating glass wall of wine.”

The Dream Home is one of 10 Vesta has under construction in Granada. The company this year has moved to close on 16 lots and five homes. DuBose has been building homes for 20 years in Southlake, Westlake, the Park Cities and Dallas.

The development is nestled in the heart of Westlake, close to Dallas/Fort Worth Airport and Southlake Town Square. It also carries Southlake and Westlake school options.
