If you weren’t actively looking for this house situated on the limestone cliffs just outside of Santa Fe, New Mexico, you may never know it’s there. Casa de Roca, which was recently featured on the Zillow Gone Wild Instagram page, is a house that has been completely covered in foam to help it blend into its surroundings. The asymmetrical windows and doors are the only features that give this place away.

According to the Zillow listing, Casa de Roca was designed and built by Santa Fe jewelry designer Norah Pearson of The Golden Eye in the early 1990s and it’s currently listed for $899,000. The jagged, rock-like exterior gives way to a light-filled, pueblo-style interior complete with terracotta tiles, two mezzanine spaces for guest quarters or studio space, and three kiva fireplaces (including one functioning cooking kiva).

The one-bedroom, two-bath home is also accented with an outdoor terrace and pergola, as well as a private kitchen patio, a two-car garage, and windows that overlook the gorgeous Galisteo basin.

One commenter on the Zillow Gone Wild Instagram post summed the space up perfectly: “Melted marshmallow on the outside, bougie southwestern Tatooine home on the inside.”

Casa de Roca is situated in Lamy, New Mexico and sits on over five acres of land. It’s expected that it will sell pretty fast, so if you’re househunting in the Santa Fe area and love this nearly-invisible house, you may want to jump on it now. Otherwise, blink and you’ll miss it.
