Luxurious Waterfront Mediterranean-style Estate situated on 230+/- acres overlooking the Ohio River. A very private estate, Bello Vista has panoramic views of the scenic countryside and the Ohio Valley. Formerly known as “The Bosworth Estate”, the home was the vision of a local riverboat captain whose dream was to create a timeless waterfront residence.

A private & gated tree-lined drive leads one mile to the highest point in Point Pleasant- the site of this incredible home.

With an exterior crafted from commercial grade masonry, steel, and poured concrete, the interior is equally impressive with the finest of details including intricate woodwork, Italian marble flooring, and sophisticated lighting. Comprised of 17,000+/- square feet of lavish living space, this premier home is the ultimate in luxurious comfort. Amenities include a heated indoor pool, elevator, wine cellar, chapel-prayer room, library, commercial and owners’ kitchens, executive office, & private hair salon. A spectacular master suite boasts private dual dressing areas and closets along with a charming fireplace, exercise room with sauna, and large bathroom with a gorgeous solid marble bathtub. Four additional bedrooms each with a private bath and spacious closet complete this extraordinary estate.

Additional home features include a three-car garage and barn.

Bello Vista was designed to be a self-contained and self-sufficient residence with a unique mechanical system, 40-kilowatt natural gas generator for backup, fallout shelter, and a central fire hose system.

Where the Ohio and Kanawha Rivers meet, Point Pleasant is a charming, historic town and home to the late Captain Robert Bosworth. Mr. Bosworth grew up with dreams of becoming a riverboat captain and his earliest years were spent on the banks of the Kanawha learning from Captains who let him ride and work on their boats. He would later emerge as a renowned river man on the Ohio, Kanawha, Allegheny, Monongahela, & Mississippi Rivers and would serve the industry for over 50 years. His romanticism with life on the river influenced him to build this magnificent estate overlooking the waters of the Ohio River. “The Bosworth Estate” is a local legend that embodies the nautical influence of the town’s own legendary riverboat captain.
