This sensitive and ambitious restoration reimagined by renowned preservation architect Bob Vint, retains the essence of the original architecture circa 1898, whilst creating a renewed vision of amenities and services an owner would expect from a home of this caliber. Located in the heart of the highly sought after Barrio Viejo community, the fit out and quality of finish of this incomparable residence, preserves and protects the vision articulated in this romantic regional aesthetic. The extensive remodel meticulously restored original details, while infusing the latest modern advancements and curated materials, sourced from around the world.
Interiors feature a collection of clean, but variously textured walls, a visual study of its environment, where color, shape, light and shadow seduce the endless combinations of this stunning vernacular home. The tradition-infused mud adobe materials, juxtaposed against naturally aged patina, creates warm and inviting spaces that engage the human spirit.
The main Zaguan opens onto the sophisticated formal living room featuring the original Saguaro ribbed viga beamed ceilings, with classic red brick floors that float seamlessly throughout the space, providing a subtle, yet delicate contrast to the vertical wall tones. Accommodations are allocated across the residence, with three bedrooms, including the principal suite, featuring dual dressing closets flanked by the sumptuously appointed primary bathroom, inclusive of a large walk-in shower and radiant heated floors.
The heart of the home is the fabulous Chef's kitchen with impeccable fit and finish throughout, including custom cabinetry, top-end stainless steel appliances, and honed granite countertops, offering an array of surface counter space. East facing windows from the kitchen and interior breakfast nook overlook the garden courtyard, with a soothing water element that acts as an escape from the hustle and bustle of the city-life, where light and shade, openness and enclosure, make for an inviting ambiance, emphasizing enjoyment as a key element of the outdoor lifestyle.
Remote gated access is provided off of Rubio Avenue to the East of the property, with a meandering drive that arrives at your own private motor-court with covered parking, and an ancillary storage/workshop structure, easily converted to a guest casita, if so desired. 2-800 gallon water harvesting tanks, assist in efficient landscape water usage, along with a whole house reverse osmosis and water treatment system that supplies water throughout the residence.
