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, designed by AIA's 2011 Design Firm of the Year Spears Horn, was 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.
The house neighbors the famed Santa Fe Opera, and is just minutes to the Plaza. It is 1700 square feet, split design, with two bedrooms and two full bathrooms. Each bedroom has a queen-sized bed. The media room 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 gorgeous Sangre de Cristo Mountains and the peaks of the Colorado Rockies. Other features include a wood-burning fireplace and an over-sized shower in the master bath. Expansive windows throughout the house allow you to enjoy the breathtaking view from multiple rooms. The home is furnished with a mid-century and modern style. It 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 built by Chip Evans of Housemakers, Inc.
