With design and appearance similar to old world architecture, this masterpiece estate is located in one of the most premiere luxury gated communities in Tarrant county: Montserrat. Surrounded by large homes of similar style, the old world feel to this estate brings out the striking difference in this home compared to all others.

An average fountain centered circle drive gives way to the front entrance and motor court. The porte cochere leads to a 5 bay garage with space for 10 cars. The back features an average sized grass area apart from the pool. An outdoor cabana, outdoor lounge area with fireplace and television, balcony, and overlooking loggia. A walkway leading from the pool veers around to the side of the home and gives way to a stoned sitting area with a cabana covering, gardens, and fountain: perfect for outdoor relaxation!

The interior of the mansion reinstates the old world feel similar to the exterior with a touch of homely features. A large stained glass ceiling mural is located directly above the front entrance providing an array of color and medieval characteristics. The foyer is encompassed with arched walkways leading to the main living room and dining room with an iron staircase leading to the second floor. The interior design is made up of stone moldings, wood finishes, and arched walkways. In the main living room, Venetian walls surround a stone fireplace with wood floors. The main dining room holds a significant old world feel with its ceiling moldings, color, and design. The key features of this estate include 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, 10,146 sq. feet, and an address to impress: 9517 Bella Terra Drive.

This different, but interesting home is listed for $3,100,000.

    The outside of this house is quite nice. The front is well balanced and the stone work looks good. I’m glad to see that a real slate tile roof was used, and that the stonework continues onto the back of the house. I love the interior stonework in the walls and arches, the ceiling trusses in the family room(?), and the entryway skylight is great. However, most of the inside is a decorating disaster. The various paint techniques are just too much, the furniture styles are all over the place, and the heavy curtains don’t help anything. In the dining room, the ceiling should be the highlight of the room, but it almost disappears after competing with all the other overdone elements in the room. All of the overly ornate and heavy chandeliers need to go, the wall treatments need to be toned down significantly, and the furniture all needs to be given away.

    Outside, I like the walled courtyard on the east side of the house; it looks like a great spot to have breakfast or a quite place to read. The pool area is also nice with and I think the parking/garage courtyard is nicely done. I also like the large second floor terrace that overlooks the pool.

    The community of Montserrat is top notch. Don and Gloria Siratt first bought the acreage to make into their own private ranch, just over 140 acres! Some friends visited and wanted to turn the land into a luxury residential development subdivision. The Siratts thought it would be a good idea and founded Montserrat. They have several children who have all built multi million dollar homes in the subdivision (family business, WDS Trucking) and still reside there today. I wrote a lot more on Montserrat at my article – ( http://hubpages.com/hub/Two-Luxurious-and-Exclusive-Gated-Communities-in-Fort-Worth-Texas-Montserrat-and-Mira-Vista ) if anyone is interested. It’s a great place to live in Fort Worth!
