With such stunning surroundings, this house couldn’t be placed in a nicer spot. With backdrops of tall evergreen trees and brilliant woodland areas, you feel at home with nature here. The house was designed by in 2013 by American company Ward-Young Architecture and Planning and has a very chalet-like style about it. The exterior has been built using lots of wooden panelling, with additions of stone and metal structuring, not to mention an abundance of glass. Every room in the house has been carefully placed, in order to get the best possible views from each direction. Inside, the large living area has high-ceilings and is closely linked to the terrace through sliding doors. The interior has a wonderfully relaxing feel, with similar materials being used on the inside as there are on the outside. Photos by Mariko Reed.
