We're always allured by a row of altitudinous windows or a double-height living room that makes us feel Alice in Wonderland small. These light-flooded BoutiqueHomes will see you on the way up.
LA MAISON DU MURIER, HAUTES-ALPES, FRANCE
Like being inside an Eggleston photo, this magnificent villa offers both a wonderful study of light and saturated pops of color. In large part, you can thank the floor-to-ceiling windows that offer views into a stunning position at the foothills of the Southern Alps.
PANORAMIC ZEN OASIS, STINSON BEACH, CALIFORNIA
Geometric clerestory windows and elegant beams add a layer of sophistication to the bright and airy great room of this vacation home in California. Tucked into the stunning coastal slope of Mount Tamalpais overlooking the Pacific, the other side of these walls is pretty spectacular too.
GUERNEVILLE MODERN, SONOMA, CALIFORNIA
This home is modern simplicity to the max - especially when it comes to its ceiling height. Slanted wood beams and upper clerestories crown the open living and kitchen area, letting washes of light bounce off the polished concrete.
THE CAZ CABIN, RUSSIAN RIVER, CALIFORNIA
This updated 1974 cabin offers steeped angles and floor-to-ceiling windows that capture the redwood wonderland outside. Wrapping you in beauty and stillness, beyond the trees you'll also find the pleasures of California wine country.
NESKOWIN BEACH HOUSE, NESKOWIN, OREGON
The Oregon Coast has a special place in our heart, and this home's strong lines and retractable glass walls capture its natural beauty to great effect. We could lounge in these soaring open interiors for days, especially by the warm glow of a fire.
MEDLEY LANE, TOPANGA, CALIFORNIA
Epitomizing that rustic-beachy blend of California cool, this double-height living room is aptly sun-drenched and blanket-draped. In other words, it's a "high-vibe" place to hide out, as we say here in Los Angeles.
THE TRAIN STATION, BIOUL, BELGIUM
A converted train station with a new perspective, this cool and contemporary home blends original stonework with a sleek kitchen, sky-high ceilings, and an almost monastic dining table (where you'll get a cinema-worthy view of it all).
TENUTA DELL' ALTO, PUGLIA, ITALY
A neoclassical villa graced with Old World charm, the restorations of this home were a feat of design and artistry. We're grateful for the way our eye is gently gestured toward the design's grand proportions and unique details.
