It’s a rare occasion that a property results in gasps of utter awe, but that is truly the case with 14 Strauss Terrace. Deemed “Casa Bella,” the Mediterranean estate rests on over 1.3 acres on prestigious Clancy Lane in the exclusive guard-gated community of The Renaissance. Built in 2012 by world-class builder Al Durrett and designed by renowned architect Juan Carlos Ochoa, no detail was spared in the creation of this custom masterpiece.
