Homes with a view

The phrase ‘a room with a view’ is something of an understatement for these luxurious properties. We bring you the cream of the world’s crop.

There are views... and then there are incredible panoramas, the likes of which typically require a six-figure bank balance to enjoy. From the majestic loneliess of the ocean to the hubbub of a whole city; from the charms of a Swiss lake to dramatic waterfalls and untarnished nature, these homes take spectacular to a whole, new level.
