Think Pueblo style is tired and done? Here’s a Santa Fe home that will refresh your view of Southwestern architectural style. While the design is congruent with Santa Fe vernacular, the contemporary Pueblo look of the property at 522 Calle Corvo is modern and chic. An up-to-date aesthetic with clean lines, neutral tones, and smooth surfaces make the textural contrast of appointments and art pop. Feast your eyes on the Zen-like abode in the art-centric Eastside neighborhood of Santa Fe …

The exterior of 522 Calle Corvo blends seamlessly with the local vibe. Tall walls surround the enclave located on a 7,971-square-foot lot within easy walking distance of the galleries, museums, restaurants, and shops of Canyon Road and the Plaza. Behind a classic gate door is a 2,860-square-foot two-bedroom, two-and-one-half-bath contemporary Pueblo home designed by the current artist/designer owner and the architect John Midyette.

Mature trees and hardscaping surround the exterior, affording luxurious space for outdoor entertaining in multiple areas, with gravel surfaces, sheltering portals, a fire pit and an outdoor kitchen punctuated by a dramatic stacked slab table. Japanese floor tiles create a visual flow throughout the interior. The master suite and office and the guest suite are situated on opposite sides of the structure, separated by the living room, kitchen and dining areas in the core. Pueblo features – vigas, kiva fireplaces, bancos — are fresh and modern in white, which also makes an excellent backdrop for fine art. Open storage throughout creates a distinctive ambiance — it’s a pro organizer’s dream, clean, accessible, efficient, modern.
