When a New York City design firm and some local craftsmen in Quintana Roo collaborated to build a “House of Stone,” they stopped short of nothing to make their masterpiece worthy of its moniker.
First, consider the façade, made of reclaimed Vista Maya stone that dates back to the pre-Columbian era. It’s made even more distinct with the surrounding jungle that frames it. Or the bleached concrete staircase with its elegant, inlaid ribbon of stone that tumbles down and twists around the home’s perimeters in beautiful ways. The artistry culminates in several open stone showers.
The minimalist interiors showcase local craftsmen and artisan talent: a woven lampshade here, an Acapulco chair there, hammocks made of natural materials hanging in the living room.
Spaces for peace and opportunities to connect with nature approach you at every turn, as the home lies within the Yum Balam Flora y Fauna Nature Reserve, on two acres with gardens and a 4 by 12-meter swimming pool.
This villa in Quintana Roo offers plenty of space and tranquility for you to recenter and connect with nature. Meet your friends under the grass zacate roofs, and stay awhile.
