In a town where the building community dazzles and amazes in Herculean leaps and bounds of creativity, the 2021 Grand Hacienda award winner by Tierra Concepts set a stunning standard for future Santa Fe remodels.
Originally built as a small adobe home, the house was remodeled at least twice and then sat empty for several years before the current owners stepped in with Stephen Beili, David Naylor and the Tierra Concepts team. They were faced with a home that had seen multiple additions until the property was a disjointed hodge-podge of styles.
The remodel was successful in reimagining the floor plan by moving the kitchen and master bathroom, thereby enhancing the layout and unifying the home’s charm. The home boasts five bedrooms, 11 fireplaces, a dry and wet bar, a caterer’s kitchen and about 5,000 square feet of wraparound portals.
Throughout the home, modern updates blend with carved vigas, arched openings, hand-painted tiles, engraved doors and sculpted ironwork. “Everything in that house is sumptuous,” said Kurt Faust, the Tierra partner in charge of this project.
