10/01/2005 - By Gena Ansell-Lande

Gena Ansell-Lande interviews Juan and Marta Gutierrez as she tours their Colts Neck home.


            Juan and Marta Gutierrez live in the kind of house that belongs in the movies.  The 9,000 square foot property set on 50 acres is filled with family pictures, eclectic art and antiques.  As you walk through the house you can’t help but notice the horse motif that exemplifies their love of all things equestrian.


            From the moment Marta first stepped foot on the grounds she knew this was the house for her family.  The Gutierrez’s main goal was to create an elegant, lived-in atmosphere.  With the help of Zaksons, they certainly accomplished that goal.  Although they have only been in the house for a year, it has the warmth and coziness that comes with being somewhere for a long time.  As Marta says, “I wanted to live in a home, not a museum.”


            Originally a farm, the house was built in 1984.  The three main colors that run through the house are red, yellow and blue which add a bright, airy feel to each of the rooms.  “We wanted our guests to feel warm and comfortable, not stiff or formal,” says Marta.  Each room is distinctive and although some of the spaces are adjoining, they each retain their own individual style.  The house has an overall “unfussy” feel to it.


            Both Juan and Marta were born in

Cuba
and their love of Cuban art and artifacts is displayed throughout their home.  They also collect antiques and fine art and have amassed quite a collection from their extensive traveling around the world.


            The Guttierez’s have 5 children, 2 grandchildren, and love to entertain.  They are known for their big Sunday dinners, set at their enormous kitchen table.  Juan and Marta are active cooks and entertainers so a big kitchen was a necessity.


            Although Juan says their home is still a “work in progress,” we think it is definitely complete.
