GERALD LUSS HOUSE, OSSINING, NEW YORK

“A mid-century gem in the woods. I love that this house is floating among the trees, and would want to visit in the Fall to see the changing colors. The decor is the real deal with original pieces designed specially for the house. Being a fan of mid century, knowing that there is more great architecture around the house to visit is a definite plus. Design and nature.”

NIKA BAY ESTATE, SICILY, ITALY

“What a great hideaway! This private compound is a glamping dream, simple but perfectly stylish. I like the mix of North African and Italian, the thick walls that keep the buildings cool, and the authenticity and history of the place. It screams vacation, relaxation, pleasure.”

 

Client and owner support Kris picked a striking architectural home bordering the El Tepozteco National Park in Mexico, and a beautifully handcrafted adobe home just outside San Pedro de Atacama in Chile. Read what he has to say below.

MEZTITLA MODERN, TEPOZTLAN, MEXICO

“Inviting nature in, nature inviting its guests out, plus a chic interior in a rustic forest setting.”

ATACAMA HOME, SAN PEDRO DE ATACAMA, CHILE

“A simple elegance not out of place in any desert setting, with modern design that somehow is suited perfectly to its environs.”

ES BEC D’AGUILA, MENORCA, SPAIN

“The whitewashed vaulted interiors and colorful rooms of this villa won me over. I love how each room has its own personality—from the jewel-toned dining area to the pastel entryway. Also, let’s not forget the lounge area overlooking the lush landscape outside.”

CRAIG ELLWOOD HOUSE, LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA

“Want to visit Los Angeles without feeling like you’re in Los Angeles? The Craig Ellwood House provides the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. Built like a mid-century treehouse (if there ever was one) with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the landscape, this vacation home is definitely where I would like to wake up one day!”

 

BoutiqueHomes founder Heinz is in the mood to visit Polish architect Marek Zarzeczny’s dazzling home that was seven years in the making, as well as an atmospheric little cabin on the Tasmanian waterfront. Read what he has to say below.

MAREK HOUSE, LUBLIN, POLAND

“The properties I have chosen are quite different in style, but they inspire each in their own personal way. What do they have in common? They tell a sublime story I will experience when I visit.”

CAPTAINS REST, STRAHAN, TASMANIA
