Builder Rob Gibbs continues a tradition of excellence at Villas di Toscana.

To know builder Rob Gibbs of Arete Homes is to truly understand the deeply rooted passion that drives him to masterfully blend quality, affordability and livability into his homes. Rob chose the word ‘Arete’—Greek for ‘virtue’ and ‘excellence’ as well as French for ‘mountain crest’—because it uniquely embodies his efforts to be the best in all aspects of his work as a homebuilder.

From his open and dynamic energy-efficient floorplans to the high-end finishes and appliances that grace his homes for comfort and ease of living, Rob’s attention to detail at Villas di Toscana is turning heads with a wide variety of homebuyers in Santa Fe and beyond.

It’s no surprise that Rob’s hard work has cultivated an award winning tradition at Villas di Toscana. Fresh on the heels of his 2016 Hacienda Parade wins for Best Kitchen and Best Master Bath, Rob won big in 2017, taking home the awards at his Pisa Model for Best Design, Best Kitchen and Best Water Efficiency, as well as Best Energy Efficiency at his Cortona model.

“To win Best Design this year for our Pisa model is incredibly satisfying,” stated Gibbs. “It’s the culmination of Arete’s hard work to understand what buyers are seeking, execute smart design and focus on livability in everything we do.” As part of the award-winning design, Villas di Toscana homes also feature wider hallways and doors with lever handles and curbless showers to appeal to buyers at various life stages. “We offer buyers an opportunity to simplify their lives—whether they are looking to downsize or buy something new—which frees them up to enjoy everything that makes Santa Fe special,” Gibbs added.

Gibbs’ back-to-back win for Best Kitchen this year is also no surprise — with its gourmet kitchen floorplan, wondrous countertops and KitchenAid appliances, a Villas di Toscana kitchen is built for the best in entertaining. And when it comes to energy and water efficiency, Villas di Toscana is second to none. “From our tankless water heaters, Kohler fixtures and low-drip irrigation design, we’re strongly focused on efficiency in all aspects of the home,” asserted Gibbs.

Parade-IMG_0027With an increased demand on the horizon, Rob and his team will have new inventory available in the next few months and are currently offering homebuyers a valued “pre-sale” option in which clients can personalize their choices.

“We work hard to make our customers happy,” Gibbs stressed. “We want them to enjoy the experience of selecting their special home and to depend on us for exceptional results.” Come see for yourself why so many are discovering why Villas di Toscana is right for them.
