Santa Fe Spanish-Inspired Home
With our 40th anniversary on the horizon, we swept the 2022 Haciendas Parade of Homes awards. Winning five distinct titles—from Best in Show to a unique prize for Extraordinary Audio Experience, our Spanish-modern view home perched high over the golf course in Las Campanas took home the gold in a show of our company’s dedication to impeccable standards, inspired craftsmanship, and uncompromising integrity.
Designed to capture the breathtaking vistas its rare, elevated lot affords, our award-winning design reveals stunning mountain views from every window. The home was initially conceived as a spec, or “to be built” project, but the 3,670-square foot residence found its owners early on, a couple as charmed by the dramatic panorama as we were.
To capture the big views, we created a contemporary structure open to the outdoors via picture windows, sliding-glass doors and deep portals. It’s a fresh, new take on our traditional regional architecture, a design we’ve termed “Spanish-modern,” that showcases the dramatic natural masterpiece on display outdoors and captures both Sangre de Cristo and Jemez Mountain vistas.
Inside, three luxurious bedrooms and three and a half baths offer sleek, modern interpretations of Santa Fe’s celebrated Spanish-inspired styling. Common areas take indoor/outdoor living to the next level, with four portals generously extending the gathering and entertaining spaces, all places designed to take full advantage of the classic New Mexican landscape and exceptional panoramas. The great room features a three-sided fireplace and walk-out portal with a gas fireplace both with Sangre de Cristo views. The kitchen possesses its own dedicated portal, a spacious area equipped with a cozy fireplace and built-in grill with the Jemez range as its dramatic backdrop. As Frank puts it, “there’s not a bad seat in the house.”
Joining us in the creation of this award-winning home were architect Lorn Tryk, Interior designer Jennifer Ashton, and landscape architect Sandra Donner. We averaged over 400 visitors a day over both weekends of the 2022 Haciendas show and consider the house to be a stand-out example of our family’s dedication to Santa Fe’s artistic and creative traditions. The celebrated residence honors our community’s history, land, and peoples, and showcases the very best of what our 40-year-old, family-owned and operated business has to offer.
