Santa Fe might conjure up images of Pueblo Revival architecture and authentic vigas, but there is also a thriving contemporary scene. Take this five-bedroom, five-and-a-half-bath home located north of the city overlooking the Santa Fe Opera. Called Casa de Vidrio, or glass house, the property consists of two structures: A 5,600-square-foot main house and a 1,600-square-foot guest house.
Both structures sit on two lots that total 13.5 acres accessed through 24-hour security at Casas de San Juan. The contemporary design was built with art collecting in mind, as much of the house boasts ideal spots to showcase paintings, sculptures, tapestries, ceramics, and glass.
The home features slate and bamboo floors and a living room with sliding pocket doors that let you open everything up to the fresh air. Splashes of bold reds, yellows, teals, and blues are found throughout the property, and the home also features numerous patios, an outdoor hot tub, and native landscaping. Throw in the 270-degree views of the nearby valleys of Santa Fe, and the home is a daring and colorful take on a modern art house.
