Whether it is ocean, lake or pond, there is a calmness and serenity that only a body of water can provide. Since the dawn of architecture, homes have been built close to these soothing natural features, both for practical and aesthetic reasons. Providing sustenance to the earth and food for the soul, we are drawn to water like moths to a flame. 

Today we would like to celebrate the great tradition of living near bodies of water, by taking a look at a few great homes constructed with a view of these beautiful natural phenomena. These 8 stunning pieces of architecture are sure to get you in the mood to take a holiday by the ocean or a trip down to the lake, if not convincing you to pack up and move there all together!

Join us now for a look at homes with water views, you will surely not be disappointed!
