March 21, 2022 11:00 am by Upside

No matter whether your dream house is a cosy log cabin in the mountains or a spacious mansion in the sound of France, there’s no denying that a beautiful view is a major selling point for any home.

The best homes in the world have gorgeous views in common, whether they are of beaches, mountains, lakes, cities, or something else.

After two years of closed borders and lockdowns, many Australians are looking to scratch that travel itch. Here are five amazing houses with unforgettable views - with two even right here in Australia for those not willing to venture out too far!

The Pole House, Australia

Speaking of stunning homes, many locals in Victoria are familiar with ‘The Pole House’, a phenomenal feat of design and engineering at Fairhaven Beach.

This unbelievable home juts out from the cliffs along the Great Ocean Drive, where it seems to float over the water. A wrap-around deck offers unobstructed views of the ocean and coastline in all directions, undoubtedly making it one of the homes with the best views in Australia, and the world.

Zen Hideaway, Bali

This home has found international acclaim for being part of various commercials, all thanks to its surreal views. This home looks out over the lush Indonesian jungle, with rice fields in the distance, tall palm trees right outside, and a huge outdoor swing to sit on and take in the views.

Penthouse Villa Wilen, Switzerland

Switzerland is known for its postcard-perfect views so it should come as no surprise that the region has its fair share of gorgeous homes.

The Penthouse Villa Wilen was the most popular AirBnB in Switzerland in 2019, and it’s easy to see why. This modern, sleek home is just metres from Lake Sarnen, but the real view is that of the towering mountains on the other side of the lake. Bright and green and lively in summer, and serene and snow-covered in winter, there’s never a bad time to take in these views.

The Skyhouse, Australia

With a name like The Skyhouse, you already know that the views from this luxury Sydney penthouse are going to be mind-blowing.

This three-level penthouse is in the heart of the Sydney CBD, and offers views over the city, including the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House, that are easily some of the most spectacular city views anywhere in the world.

Floor-to-ceiling windows beautifully showcase these views, and the open-air rooftop spa is the dream house design cherry on top.

Oia Mansion, Greece

Surrounded by gleaming white homes and hotels with a flawless ocean view and ancient volcanic calderas in the distance, Oia Mansion is a place of pure bliss. Sit outside on luxury outdoor loungers or relax in the rooftop pool as the sun goes down in one of the best mansions in the world.

This area is dotted with some of the world’s most beautiful houses, so even turning away from the sunset promises gorgeous views in all directions.
