Multiny Bay by Heliotrope Architects

This modest summer house was designed by Heliotrope Architects for the retired couple. The site located in Whidbey Island and area of this house is about 2,300 square feet. The main idea was to create a comfortable accommodation for two and for guests as well. The Multiny Bay is divided into two parts. The Northern part of the house is more private and includes bedrooms and bathrooms. The Southern structure encloses public functions; there are living, dining and kitchen areas there. It is a typical country house with beautiful views over the water, where you can relax and hold family meetings around the fireplace.

The House of a Dream in New Jersey

It is not a joke! This marvelous house is situated in Lambertville in New Jersey and is sold at a price of almost $ 2 million. It is rather old (its history dates back to 1905) but all the rooms were completely restored recently. Finding yourself in it you won’t regret. There are three floors in this house and a great number of rooms. Entering the main entrance you will get into the parlor with an old-fashioned fireplace and the salon with large windows which open a really wonderful view. You’ll be shocked by a luxury and splendor of the house. There are five bedrooms, five bathrooms, dining room, modern spacious cuisine and Jacuzzi. A garage, a small terrace, a cellar equipped for those who like billiards and even a greenhouse are also available. This house is created for joy. It combines unobtrusive old-fashionedness with ultra modernity. I’m sure its elegance and magnificence won’t leave anyone indifferent.

Luxury Villa in Naples, Florida

Splendid villa built in classical style in Naples, Florida. The house is very bright and spacious and it impressed us with its inner and external beauty. It sold for 1.95 million dollars and it's not too much for the luxury. Indoor features include 4 bedrooms, living room with antique furniture, spacious wooden kitchen, dining room and plenty of natural light due to large windows. But that's not all, outside you’ll find green golf course, lots of flowers and palms. Especially we love breathtaking panoramic swimming pool. So we are faced with a fair balance of price and quality, how do you think?

Dwelling House by Andersson Wise Architects

I think everyone in a big city sometimes wants to go to the countryside and enjoy fresh air, walks in the woods and singing of birds. Present to you charming Dwelling House by Andersson Wise Architects located in Bigfork, Montana. Feature of a country house is primarily in the privacy and closeness to nature. It should not be large, but cozy and warm. This house fully satisfies the requirements. In the internal and external decoration of the home were used natural materials such as wood and stone. Homeowners can eat outdoors or simply enjoy the magnificent views of forest and water due to the open terrace.
