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.
