First Look: The 2018 Home of Dreams

We're back in Granada to do this all over again.

Fort Worth Magazine is revisiting Westlake’s burgeoning Granada development for the latest in our series of luxury showcase homes.

Granada is home to the magazine’s Home of Dreams 2018 — a 6,465-square-foot, five-bedroom, six-bath, modern traditional hacienda being built by PentaVia Custom Homes and expected to be completed later this year. Dona Robinson, of Allie Beth Allman & Associates, the magazine’s official dream home Realtor, has listed the home, 2210 Costa Del Sol, at $2.895 million. Upon completion, the Home of Dreams will be open for tours that benefit the project’s official charity, a Wish with Wings.

A PentaVia predecessor built the magazine’s first Granada dream home, which debuted last year. The company uses what it calls its “five roads of design” — physical, social, intellectual, emotional and personal — to design and build homes it calls an “unparalleled living experience.”

The Home of Dreams, designed by architect John Hathaway of Austin’s Vanguard Studio, will use unusual angles — not 90-degree angles — to visually augment spaces like a gated, private front courtyard and backyard, which will feature a zero-edge pool and topographical design that shields the home from the streets below the hilltop site.

Two 40-foot-long steel I-beam headers, which each carry 106 pounds per square inch, will allow a massive open great room that opens into the front courtyard and backyard through big glass walls with steel-framed divided lights to let light flow in. The entry wall will feature a 4-foot-by-10-foot glass door.

The great room will open into the kitchen across a large quartz island and through a see-through, two-sided fireplace into a study on the other end. A 1,000-bottle wine room, also glass and steel-framed, will highlight the stairwell to the second floor.

The Home of Dreams, like all of the magazine’s dream homes, will be built for entertaining. The kitchen will have a secret door into a big pantry. Other features will include a cigar room, with a special ventilation system, off of the game room.

The master suite will open onto the pool deck through a glass and steel-framed wall and door, and house an exercise room with refrigerator, TV and built-in weight rack. The master bath will be accented by sliding barn-style doors.

Also planned for the home is a guest suite, garage and gated entrance that frame a cozy front courtyard and entry into the home. The garage will have a lift system, allowing four cars to be parked in the two-car space.

Backyard plans feature a partially covered pool deck and a cabana with a swim-up bar.

Upstairs, the Home of Dreams will have three bedrooms, utility room, media game space, and backyard-facing balcony with linear fireplace overlooking the pool.
