Everybody loves a room with a view, and what’s even better is a whole host of them from a beautiful house with spectacular panoramic views. Adorable Home Magazine have put together their favourite seven properties with the most breath-taking views for The LuxPad below…
With residential properties it is not always and only about how large the house is, but whether it offers floor plans inviting us to enjoy sea breezes, mountain mornings, or the pastoral peace of the countryside. Views do matter!
Have a look at this stunning collection of properties most of which are situated on challenging terrains but all offering great views and all being true pieces of architectural genius.
Pretty Beach House
Pretty Beach House is a sophisticated private guesthouse offering top quality services, modern amenities and luxurious ambiance, a private chef for exclusive gastronomic experience, breathtaking panoramic views, exciting private boat trips, and Zen-relax spa. A modest name for such top excellence! The best part is that the house is designed, built and purposed to make its guests feel at home in an intimate, safe and authentic environment, nested in the serene and quintessentially Australian bushland.
The property features a guest-shared Main House and four exclusive private pavilions, all developed and furnished in a sophisticated style of charming elegance and luxury.
Black Desert House
The Black Desert House is the stunning creation of Marc Atlan and Oller & Pejic Architecture. Its name reveals the main concept of the project – to set up a modern and luxurious retreat in the heart of the Mojave desert presented in an all-black design aimed at creating a dramatic ‘shadow’ of the mountain.
Black dominates in both, the exterior as well as the luxurious interior of the house, yet it does not make the space feel small, somber, or cheerless. Due to the panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows, the border between internal and external space melts away, revealing the breathtaking grandeur of the natural surroundings.
In the attempt to bring humans and their residences to a more intimate unity with Nature, the team of Ajay Sonar has developed the Panorama House, and placed it atop a small hill against the background of the Gangapur Dam in Nasik, India. As in an idyllic dream, the Sahyadri Mountain frames the beautiful scenery and incorporates the building within. With panoramic glass walls framed by a simple pigmented concrete cuboid shell structure, the house stands almost invisibly amidst the landscape, matching the colour of the surrounding soil and mountains, and allows its residents to enjoy the magnificent performance of weathers and seasons in a picture perfect view.
Atop the 70-metre high cliffs of Dover Heights, Australia rising steep over the ocean, stands the futuristic structure of the House Holman private residence with a crisp white silhouette cutting in the vast background of the deep blue sky. The house has been developed by Durbach Block Jaggers Architects who have designed its plan inspired by Picasso’s surreal painting The Bather. And indeed, the structure of the building develops in a complex series of meandering spaces that arc, fold and stretch in response to landscape and views. The rough stone walls of the lower levels cut into the cliff, forming a solid base, and continue along the cliff edge to form eccentric terraced gardens and a vase-shaped rock pool.
Walking along the edge of the steep rocky shores of the Tinos Island and enjoying the breathtaking views to the Aegean Sea, there is a sight that will stop the wanderer and will make him wonder whether what he sees is a mirage or reality. A large piece of a water mirror extends to the horizon, vanishing and merging with the seascape and creating a stunning mirage vision. Yet it is very much real – an architectural masterpiece created by Kois Associated Architects and integrated into the landscape like it was part of it. The rimless pool itself is a roof covering the large open space living area, while the rest of the house premises are built in the rock itself, ‘disappearing’ into the scenery. Local building techniques and materials have been used to ensure proper temperature regulation and protection from weather and solar radiation.
The Summer House
The Summer House, designed by JVA, stands among the rugged rock formations and huge boulders lining the coast of Vestfold in the southern part of Norway. It is a low elongated structure looking like a ‘living’ rock as it is perfectly adjusted to the surrounding terrain in terms of shape, scale, material and colour. The overall shell of the building is divided through cut-ins to allow for wind shielded outdoor areas protected by the house itself. The house offers an infinity pool and a large terrace overlooking the spectacular North Sea, protected from the harsh sea winds by a glass wall, which allows unobstructed panoramic views.
9010 Hopen Place – Matthew Perry’s Residence
Located atop Los Angeles luxurious “Bird Streets” neighbourhood, the Hopen Place Residence is known as one of the most prestigious properties on the Hollywood Hills and home of the famous actor Matthew Perry, star of “Friends”. The amazing 3-bedrooms, 4- bathrooms, 4,000 sq. ft. residence is a sleek architectural artwork, developed for a lavish Hollywood lifestyle, and boasts top-of-the-line amenities, deluxe interior design and unparalleled comfort. A custom made sliding glass wall opens the living area and leads into a sensational central courtyard featuring a solar and gas heated spa, revealing stunning jet-liner city views to downtown LA and the Pacific Ocean over the blue cascading waters of a dazzling “wet edge” infinity pool.
