  • Casa Que Canta is offered for sale by Merida Living Real Estate.

Casa Que Canta, or the “Singing House,” is so named for a famous former resident, the Yucatecan troubadour and composer Manuel “Chucho” Silvestre de Jesus Herrera. The composer of “Reina de Reinas,” “Mi Merida” and “La Isla” lived in this house for many years.

Today, the home is known for recently winning a second-place interior design award in Architectural Digest. It’s also known for being that rare one-floor property with four bedrooms and four baths, which is hard to find in Merida.

From top to bottom this property is spectacular and the architecture is exquisite. The whole property has high ceilings and jaw-dropping pasta tiles.

The first thing you’ll notice is the stunning facade, which features a welcoming front garden and two spectacular colonial doors. The left door is a private entrance to the first bedroom, which is very spacious and has access to the foyer and a full bathroom. The door to the right is the entrance to the foyer.

Right after the foyer, the living room offers a pleasant view of the dining room and backyard. The dining room and kitchen area has a mix of colors that is so pleasant to the eye. The view from the kitchen to the pool area and bedrooms is outstanding.

This property has most of its original trees, giving an amazing jungle feeling to the pool area. Right off the pool, the master bedroom is very spacious and has an amazing view of the pool area, good size closet and a beautiful bathroom with a small garden.
At the very end, there is a third bedroom with a full bathroom. The fourth bedroom is right off the pool, and is very private with a small ensuite, perfect to host guests or relatives.
