Mira Vista is one of Fort Worth’s most prestigious golf course communities. With easy access to the new Chisholm Trail Parkway, the added security of a 24-hour guard gate at the entrance and the convenience of a top-rated golf course designed by Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish in your own backyard, Mira Vista is one of the most sought-after subdivisions in town.
Lahontan Drive is home to this spacious Sean Knight Mediterranean villa, which was built in 2007. Its stucco exterior has arched windows with stone detailing and stately Tuscan red tile roof. The stained concrete circular drive is accented by vertical elements such as traditional poplars and palms and makes for impressive curb appeal. Other amenities include a three-car garage, home theater room, exercise space and study.
The open space inside is stunning with soaring ceilings and a sweeping, decorative wrought iron staircase. Honey-toned travertine marble floors and repeating archways tie together the floorplan, which boasts three separate living areas. The formal dining room opens to the living room with a gas fireplace and two-story vaulted ceilings, while the cozy family room, with its additional fireplace wrapped by a stone mantle, has carpet under foot.
Gleaming granite, stainless steel appliances and a gas cooktop add to the functionality of the designer kitchen. The central island has a built-in prep sink. The eat-in arrangement has both a breakfast nook with a view to the pool and golf course beyond as well as bar seating, making this the heart of the home.
Upstairs, you will find three of the five bedrooms and baths. The master retreat has a sitting area, an ensuite with double vanities, a walk-in shower and jetted tub. The spacious game room is at the top of the stairs. It overlooks the living room below and is perfect for causal entertaining with a dedicated game table, wet bar and a large balcony that enjoys panoramic views of the 12th and 13th fairways.
Thanks to its golf course setting, the backyard seems to overlook a manicured estate. Covered and uncovered patio space is enhanced by the soothing sound of multiple waterfalls in the blue diving pool complete with spa, beverage island and water slide.
