Good Point. Several have mentioned the "Green" use or maintaining the "Green Home" concept, but agree this is the Dream Home, not the Green Home.
I still find it interesting that the designers go in and add all these color schemes to homes, but one of the first things they tell the homesellers is to get rid of the colors and go with more subdued/low-key colors.
Agree. I think it would make for an interesting show to have someone like Jamie Dury or a Yard Crasher show to crank it up a notch. I was not aware of the "water restrictions" for the area, but I find it hard to believe that people with that quality of home don't have pools in that area. From the San Pedro Overlook at Campbell Ranch, " In close proximity, you have the luxury of playing golf at an award-winning golf course, hiking unique trails, skiing two mountains, horseback riding through the rolling hills and relaxing by the pool."
Granted, I only watched the show once, but memory serves me that they commented about where else to shop for such a great home, but in New York. If I'm building a gorgeous home in New Mexico then why not use the local designers and resouces to furnish the home.
Agree with a lot of what you say. Definitely, would keep it, but not my taste and concur poorest to date. Concerning the great food in town - She was offered Carnitas - chicken or beef; however, carnitas are made with pork. Fajitas are chicken or beef. One more thing, ??? going to NY City to buy furniture for New Mexico - made no sense at all! They really missedthe mark with that one.
House is beautiful, but for that much money and size I would have thought they would have done more to the outside. As avid watchers of HGTV and seeing all the great outdoor projects that have been done on HGTV and DIY network, we really thought they would have done more. The outdoor grill and kitchen area looks small and for the size of the house and money they missed a real opportunity to design a pool and water features to go with the house.
