Exquisite regional artwork, antiques, native rugs and artifacts adorn this warm, classic New Mexican adobe home that reveals breathtaking views of the Jemez and Sangre de Christo mountain ranges throughout the house. Built in harmony with the foothills, the home includes multiple living areas, an upper master suite with sunroom, office and jaccuzi, a main level suite with 2 beds (king and double), and a secluded lower level queen suite. Passive solar, coupled with the house design, eliminates the need for central air and heating. Radiant in-floor heat, five Kiva fireplaces, and efficient space heaters in the main living area will keep you warm on the chilliest of winter days. Our gated home is located at the end of a short driveway with very private and beautifully landscaped walking trails, multiple patios and 4 decks, all on 5 acres.


The main living area is comprised of two large yet cozy rooms, both with large windows and gorgeous views, that share a wrap-around kiva fireplace. Comfortable leather sofas and easy chairs, a grand piano, and a 55” LG flatscreen TV and entertainment center, make this part of the house a wonderful secluded gathering place away from the bedrooms.


The heavy wooden dining table seating six to eight people, separates the kitchen from yet another sunken living area with fireplace, a large day bed and comfortable seating. You’ll find plenty of dishes, flatware and serving pieces, mugs, bowls and glasses, all indigenous to the area. The galley kitchen has tiled countertops, pots and pans hanging from the ceiling, and of all the amenities a person who loves cooking would want.


Master Bedroom: A grand artisan staircase leads from the living areas to a room with spectacular views. Large individual windows wrap around a king size bed that looks on to a kiva fireplace and master jacuzzi bath with picture-window. The large cushioned built-in bench with table and 2 chairs overlooking the Jemez Mountains, makes it the perfect place for breakfast or coffee indoors. As well, this bedroom has private access to the office and sunroom which offer more spectacular views, a large daybed and rollaway.

Main Level Bedroom: Situated on the main floor off the dining room, this bedroom suite has a king bed, kiva fireplace and large flatscreen TV with sitting area. Large windows that surround the bed afford wonderful views of the Sangre de Christo mountains to the east. A half-wall separates an additional double bed from the rest of the suite. The chess table and chairs looking onto the private porch complete the room.

Lower Level Bedroom: Located downstairs, this queen bed and large shower with bench offer extreme privacy from the rest of the house with it’s own private porch area.

Sunken Room: Located off the dining room on the main floor is a large daybed and fireplace.


Upper Level: Off the upper master suite, you’ll find a small patio with a table for 2, perfect for coffee. From there, stairs lead to the rooftop deck. Once there you will experience the magic of a 360º degree view spanning 4 mountain ranges. Our home is just far enough away from the city lights to experience the majesty of the universe after dark, as well as a full view of Los Alamos. Comfortable folding chairs and a warm chiminea complete the experience.

Main Level: (1) Outside the entertainment living room is a large deck that leads to a huge open fireplace. Plenty of seating, a dining table with umbrella, two grills and views facing west make this a wonderful place for breakfast or dinner. Large reclining lounge chairs and ample sun allow for laying in the sun year-round. (2) On the other side of the house is a beautiful enclosed private courtyard with multiple seating options, much like you would expect to find on a quaint cottage off Canyon Rd. From here, the Sangre de Cristo Mountains can be seen in the distance. (3) Outside of the main level bedroom suite is a large jacuzzi tub and private deck nestled in the trees, again with ample seating.

Lower Level: French doors in the Lower Level Bedroom open on to a private treed area.

Complementary pinion wood is stacked just outside the front door under a covered portico.

We have merely scratched the surface in our description. This is a home you simply must experience for yourself. We believe that all the 5 star reviews speaks for us as well.

Because many of the handmade, original art pieces are within a child’s reach, we discourage families with young children staying in our home.

Perfection in every way.

  • 5 of 5

The photos on the website are enticing but they cannot truly convey the serene beauty of this home. Every room has it's own special flare. We made sure to try every nook and sitting area, each one felt unique and comfortable. It was so pleasant to visit Santa Fe shops/restaurants and then return to this beautiful home situated on the hillside where we could enjoy quiet solitude and the stunning starry night sky. One of the most appreciated aspects is that everything you need to know is provided for you. You're never at a loss trying to figure out how to turn on the AC, heat, TV, stereo,. computer, etc. It's all spelled out for you. And, if you have any question at all, the manager (Tom) is a quick call away. He is very responsive and truly wants to make sure your stay is pleasant and all you'd hope it would be. Visit it - you won't be disappointed!

Stay Cool in Santa Fe!

  • 5 of 5

The House is Beautiful! We had a great time relaxing on the back patio and enjoying the gorgeous sunsets each evening! The house is plenty big for 6 adults. We were there during Indian Market, and Casa de Musica was a great place to retreat to when ready to escape the crowds!

Wonderful Santa Fe Home!

  • 5 of 5

Our second year at the fabulous Santa Fe home! Amazing views from each of the patios and decks. Viewing the stars in the zero gravity chairs is incredible. Each bedroom has privacy yet spacious. Didn't get a chance to use the hot tub, but I'm sure it's sublime. We will be back next year, if not sooner! Tom is a very caring host.

Casa de Musica is an amazing property with a unique personality ... true to the Southwest landscape!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had an incredible time at Casa de Musica! Having a large family with adult children, it was perfect for times we wanted to all gather together but everyone also found places of solitude and personal reflection in the many sitting areas both inside and out. The decor is amazing! We were all still seeing hidden treasures and designs for the first time as we were leaving our last morning. The views on the rooftop were spectacular! We began several mornings up there at 5:45 watching the sunrise and then enjoyed the cool evenings together under a full moon and a sky full of stars.

No doubt, our family will be returning to Casa de Musica. Tom and Cindy have done a superb job of making this a must see property in Santa Fe. They are great to work with, very personable and available for questions/concerns in a timely manner. If you are looking for a vacation home in the Santa Fe area, don't miss this one!
