Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Nowhere is the experience of water more private and enlightening than from the windows of one's home, where water's reflective properties allow heart, mind, and body to unite in tranquil repose. Whether on a precipitous cliff top or by a gently murmuring stream, houses by water are animated like no others.

Fully illustrated in color with luminous photographs by internationally acclaimed photographers, Living on the Water offer a unique glimpse behind the doors of the world's most appealing private residences. From Bali and the Mexican coast to Tahiti and the Mediterranean, 35 houses located by rivers, ports, waterfalls, ponds, and oceans reveal the unique relationship their inhabitants have with the natural setting. Prismatic all-glass houses and neo-Renaissance villas, clapboard mills and moated castles-all offer different aspects of life on the water.

With inspiring illustrations from all corners of the world, and special features on making the most of waterfront location- with terraces, private jetties, water gardens, and bridges-this is a book for everyone who lives, or wishes to live on the water.
