Is this the perfect spot for an after-work glass of wine or what? I love that the excitement of the city expands between this deck and the water view.
This Palo Alto estate has unbeatable views.
American Pastoral at its best.
This desert view in Hidden Valley is nothing short of sublime.
Speaking of sublime, this view is not for those who are scared of heights.
An all-the-way-through-the-house view. I love the twist on a barn vernacular controls the view from back to front here.
I love that this view is uninterrupted by window panes. The long horizontal lines of the architecture mimc the horizon itself.
The view from this balcony feels like it's at the top of the treeline. Breathtaking!
More indoor/outdoor views from what I believe is the same house pictured above.
A perch in vineyard country.
This is a great example of how transitional spaces between indoors and out allow for maximum enjoyment of the view.
Sited in a field of wildflowers - what could be better?
There's something so beautiful yet rugged about these Hamptons dunes.
Here's the perfect space to enjoy the view for three seasons...
All homes with views like these should have this many windows!
No words necessary.
Axial design controls the view here.
I don't think I could afford to even rent this joint for five minutes, but I'd like to try!
This reminds me a bit of the work of one of my favorite landscape architects, Thomas Church, author of "Gardens are for People."
I love that the more wild edge of this pool transitions from the built landscape to the view beyond it.
This could very well be the best spot for a covered porch EVER.
Oh I am so in love with bridges too...This might just be the ultimate patio to me.
