What Is a Villa?

Last modified on April 1st, 2022 at 5:27 pm

You’ve likely heard of a villa home in reference to luxury vacation or resort spots, but you may be wondering, what is a villa home exactly? As an award-winning Central Texas developer and builder of luxury villa and garden home communities, Spicewood Communities knows first-hand what important features create the perfect amenity rich villa home experience.

Our luxury villa plans are exclusive to Gardens at Verde Vista and like our garden homes, low maintenance living is still the hallmark of these single level homes that range from 2,200 to 2,600 square feet.  Each villa home is perfectly sized to live comfortably without the hassle of cleaning a bunch of rooms and space you never use, with just a little more room to stretch out! Following the concept of what a lock off villa is like, but even better, the Gardens at Verde Vista villas also feature a private guest casita with a full bathroom located off the private courtyard and are completely free-standing (not even a shared fence). Open concept living areas, including a gourmet kitchen, flow harmoniously together to create ideally situated space for entertaining. All Gardens at Verde Vista villa homes include these features that create an unparalleled luxury lock-and-leave villa home living experience.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A VILLA AND A CONDO?

The word villa automatically invokes visions of high-end living, and while you may hear some builders or real estate professionals draw likenesses to condo living, the two are really very different.  So, what is the difference between condo and a villa? A condo, or sometimes referred to as a townhouse, is typically a two- or three-story home that is attached to a row of the same style/structure of homes. In other words, these are not free-standing homes. The front and backyards of condos or townhouses are also very limited in most cases if they include any yard at all. The villa homes at Gardens at Verde Vista are free-standing structures much like a single-family home, separated by a beautiful and spacious private courtyard. The villa homes are also designed to afford the perfectly-sized home in a single story to make for easier maintenance and care of your home. However, Gardens at Verde Vista does provide an optional 2nd floor with game/media rooms and an additional bedroom is available to allow guests a little extra space and privacy during their stay.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A VILLA AND A HOUSE?

At Spicewood Communities, we believe that simplifying doesn’t have to mean sacrificing. Our villa homes are designed to provide both the comfort and spaciousness of a single-family home, but with even more luxury and high-end features, including modern Hill Country exteriors, covered patios/porches/breezeways, high/cathedral ceilings with unique accent details, a spa-inspired master bathroom suite, and luxury custom finishes showcase the exceptional quality we build into every villa home. While new houses typically offer a standard set of features with minimal customizations, our villa homes offer a much higher degree of customization than most builders and we will always do our best to accommodate any ‘unique’ requests you may have.

WHAT IS A VILLA COURTYARD?

At Gardens at Verde Vista if you need a quiet outdoor space to relax and recharge, every villa home features Spicewood Communities signature private gated courtyard entry. Inspired by magical spaces in Tuscany or the French Quarter, these courtyards create a serene outdoor retreat for you to transform into whatever you can imagine as your perfect sanctuary. Orienting our garden homes around these courtyards has truly blurred the lines between indoor and outdoor living. Natural light also floods inside through abundant windows, which means you get the added benefit of enjoying your beautiful courtyard from a variety of rooms throughout your home. You get all the benefit of having a stunning outdoor living area without the upkeep! And you have the freedom of knowing full landscape services (other than your courtyard) are provided by the HOA! All you have to do is relax and enjoy your new luxury villa at Gardens at Verde Vista in Georgetown.
