When it comes to prime real estate, everyone knows it’s all about location, location, location.
Whether your next home is a luxury mountainside retreat or one with a commanding oceanfront view, one of the best ways to capture those breathtaking vistas is with floor-to-ceiling windows. Thankfully, most modern home builders today realize this is what many buyers are looking for, especially when it comes to the luxury market.
We have rounded up five stunning homes with floor-to-ceiling windows designed to seamlessly connect the indoors with their spectacular outdoor scenery.
Scale The Summit in Vegas
Located in one of the most exclusive properties in Las Vegas known as The Summit Club, SkySummit provides a “wow factor” the moment you step inside.
From the double-height ceilings to the walls of windows, you can see all the way from Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area to the Las Vegas Strip from any room in the house. For an even better view, head outside to one of the many balconies, the pool deck, shaded patios or the private “Zen” courtyard.
Colorado Mountain Vistas Are Calling
If it’s a mountain setting you crave, an artistic compound sits prominently in the Mountain Star gated community of Avon, Colorado. The towering two-story windows in the living room and dining area are among the first things you notice when you enter the home that offer unobstructed surrounding mountain views.
The five-bedroom smart house also features a wine room and workout room along with an additional structure currently configured as an art gallery.
Reserve Your Own Garden Spot in Beverly Hills
Set on a coveted 3.2 acres of privacy surrounded by lush greenery in Beverly Hills, California, 3000 Benedict Canyon Drive offers a true escape from the hustle and bustle of city living. From the moment you walk in, an abundance of natural light streams in from nearly every room of this five-bedroom home’s jaw-dropping, floor-to-ceiling walls of windows.
Located on a promontory lot, the light-filled ultra-modern house also features an indoor/outdoor gym, an infinity edge pool, and numerous patios and decks to take in the breathtaking views.
