By the Engel & Völkers Team
So many of our special moments are spent at home. From celebrating big milestones, to entertaining friends and family or stealing away time for yourself after a long day, home is life’s bedrock—and what’s outside its four walls can be just as important as what’s inside. From breathtaking mountains in Aspen, Colorado, to the pristine beaches of Los Cabos, Mexico, Engel & Völkers represents properties in some of the most stunning locations worldwide where natural landscapes are the true centerpieces. While luxe features can certainly add a “wow” factor to a spectacular estate, here are a few of our current favorite homes where the outdoors is at the core of their beauty.
The Majestic “Cabin” in the Woods
Snowmass Village, Colorado
Built up against a hillside, this contemporary, architectural masterpiece in Colorado is truly one with the mountains. Maximizing sweeping views and light with floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall windows throughout each room, it’s easy to fall in love with snow-capped mountains, fall foliage or bright greenery from this home’s every angle, no matter what the season.
Under the Californian Sun
Westlake Village, California
No need to be a wine connoisseur to appreciate the sheer beauty of this California estate. Nestled among rolling hills in LA County’s posh Westlake Village and even posher North Ranch Country Club Estates, the owner of this grand estate can also claim nearly five acres of land and a producing vineyard. Tired from sipping vino by your expansive pool? Take a break in your own resort-style spa, at-home cinema or studio-quality music room.
Sun, Sea & Sky
San Jose Corridor, Baja California Sur
With clear blue waters and warm sand within reach and one of the most impressive outdoor entertainment areas in residential Los Cabos, this ultra-luxe property is an idyllic and sophisticated escape of the highest order. With seamless indoor/outdoor living spaces throughout the estate and virtually endless views of sea and sky, this tropical oasis calls the landscape its muse.
