Welcome to Bella Collina
From the moment one enters Bella Collina’s gated entrance, it is quickly evident there is something special about this golf and lakefront community just west of Orlando.
Perhaps it’s the ancient oak trees and tall Italian cypress trees that frame a stunning view of Lake Siena, a 350-acre spring-fed lake. Then, there’s the timeless architecture laid out across Florida’s rare rolling hills, highlighted by the club’s cobblestone driveway that leads to the 75,000-square-foot Italianate clubhouse that sits atop one of Florida’s highest points.
Indeed, one visit to this extraordinary Tuscan-like landscape, and it is evident why so many feel they’ve truly escaped to Italy’s most famous hillside region. The organization behind Bella Collina is private equity firm DCS Investment Holdings of West Palm Beach, Fla. The group is led by Washington Redskins co-owner Dwight C. Schar, who founded NVR, Inc., one of America’s largest homebuilding and mortgage banking companies.
