The Gerald Cassidy Estate

A Canyon Road Masterpiece


The historic Gerald Cassidy Estate on Santa Fe’s world renowned Canyon Road is now available for purchase, thereby providing the opportunity to fulfill one’s lifestyle wish at the highest level in an incomparable fashion.

One of the oldest continuously occupied homes in North America, this one-of-a-kind estate has a modern flair that belies its unique provenance.

"The House of Sunshine"

Sited on a parcel of land once owned by the French explorer and trader Jean L’Archevêque, the landmark compound — portions of which date to the Spanish Colonial era of the late 1600s — is steeped in the history of Santa Fe.

In the early 20th century, the home was owned by Gerald Cassidy — an artist, designer, and founding member of the Santa Fe art colony — and his wife, Ina Sizer Cassidy, head of the WPA’s Federal Writing Project in New Mexico.

Their expansion of the home incorporated eye-catching classical pieces salvaged from the nearby 18th-century Nambe Pueblo Mission church: beams, corbels, canales, and an altar screen painted by Bernardo Miera y Pacheco, one of the earliest New Mexico santeros.
