An elegant hilltop hacienda in Tucson, Ariz., beckons with lavish interiors, enchanting outdoor living spaces, and architecture that feels perfectly at home in its saguaro-sprinkled environment.
An Old World patina is the hallmark of this stunning residence, a hacienda constructed to feel much like an original, authentically–designed adobe from the 1800s, but with a refreshing splash of modernity. Note the sumptuous leather sectional amidst the antiquities in the Great Room! Seamlessly melding with its surroundings, the structure was essentially hand built and lovingly appointed through the collaborative efforts of its imaginative owners, a host of artisanal craftsmen and an innovative architectural team.
The hacienda is replete with a variety of antiquities and furnishings from Mexico, South America and Europe. Desks and tables that are hundreds of years old rest on richly hued rugs collected on the owners’ treks to Istanbul. Religious iconography, evident throughout the home, imparts an atmosphere of sacredness to everyday life. The Remington sculpture in the loggia is one of many artworks that grace the premises.
