Tesuque House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Library, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Architecturally significant, The Butterfly House is a re-creation of a classic case-modern home with wings, ample glass, and sloped ceilings. Completed in summer of 2011, this new one-story home sits on one acre of secluded property with unobstructed views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. The Butterfly House is being featured in the 2012 Design Santa Fe tour. The initial design concept of this residence was to provide a vibrant entry and open living space in the heart of a minimal arrangement of supporting spaces / forms rooted in the earth. The implied butterfly roof is the intersection of these spaces creating a spirited appearance from a distance and up close. The house was designed to reflect an environment of health and repose within the surrounding high desert of north Santa Fe.

Both the Santa Fe Plaza and the Santa Fe opera are just minutes away. The Santa Fe Ski Basin and the city of Taos are each less than 45 minutes away. The home is 2100 square feet with two bedrooms and two full bathrooms. Each bedroom has a queen-sized bed. The library and master bedroom both have flat-screen televisions. The kitchen shines with black granite countertops, an island, and top-of-the-line appliances. A patio, which features a table and chairs and a gas grill, is accessible from both the living area and the master suite, and looks northeast, directly at the mountains. Other features include a wood-burning fireplace, an over-sized shower in the master bath, and a split bedroom design. The home is furnished with a mid-century and modern style. It incorporates environmentally conscious systems for the management of water, waste, heating and cooling in order to help preserve the beauty of the New Mexican landscape. The house is oriented and was built to assure optimal natural heating and cooling and has state of the art high powered ceiling fans to provide comfort year round. The home was designed by James Horn of Spears Architects www.spearsarchitects.com/residential/butterfly-house and built by Chip Evans of Housemakers, Inc.

Private retreat in Santa Fe

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 22, 2013

My husband and I stayed at the Butterfly House with another couple and we would highly recommend it. This home is bright, airy and comfortable. We loved the contemporary aesthetics and the well equipped kitchen. The air conditioning was a nice option to have, but the ceiling fans and cool nights were perfect for us.

The layout of the home created enough privacy for all of us. Having 2 bedrooms and 2 baths (on opposite ends of the house) were ideal. We loved all the windows (even in the showers), which provided wonderful views of the surroundings. The patio was a nice added bonus for some outdoor grilling, margaritas and gorgeous sunsets.

The Butterfly House location provided easy access to downtown Santa Fe, local restaurants and day excursions.

We can’t wait to rent this house again.

Walking into "The Butterfly House" is like taking a deep breath and knowing everything will be perfect. Situated in the hills of Santa Fe, there are lovely views from all sides of the house, comfortable furniture, a well-appointed kitchen, and peace and quiet. The location is ideal because you are a short ride to the activities in downtown Santa Fe and close access to highways for adventures. A casino is ten minutes away and don't miss a scenic drive to Madrid for its shops and galleries.
Butterfly House is perfect for an extended stay or a weeks getaway. I highly recommend it and would come back in a minute.

Contemporary architecture and design draws attention to the natural elements of the southwest

Aesthetically speaking, The Butterfly House is unlike any other in the Sangre de Cristo foothills. It's contemporary architecture and design draws attention to the natural elements of the southwest.

There are windows and glass doors throughout so visitors are able to admire the surroundings, even from the living room or the bathroom. How relaxing! There's a patio that looks out on the mountains of Durango, Colorado, which is a short drive from the Tesuque Hills.

The house's minimalism not only puts the view at the forefront but it also makes the home feel open and spacious, even amongst the mountains. It's eco-friendly as well, which is always a plus. What I enjoyed most was exploring the foothills in the early morning for rocks (there's an abundance of quartz).

Would definitely recommend this place, especially to artsy folks and nature lovers. There opera house is right there, too, so it's an ideal spot for music afficionados as well.
