This Bend, Oregon, architectural masterpiece is located on 10 acres and features mountain views from nearly every room, including the bedroom, with 22-ft ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, and a neutral gray-and-white color palette.
The rest of the first floor of this house is just as unique as the kitchen. The dining area, sitting just off the kitchen, makes the beautiful mountain view the focal point of the space. The floor to ceiling windows allow in plenty of natural light, while giving a clear view of the scenery. The modern dining table and white table setting, while elegant, take a back seat to the beauty of nature. The sitting room just off the dining area uses the same simple, elegant design, continuously highlighting the extraordinary view.
This Mount Olympus master bedroom has a view fit for the gods. The retractable window walls allow for an up close and personal view of nature, making this space the perfect place to relax.

This modern mountain home showcases an open, contemporary floor plan with a great room that features stone and metal finishes. The large glass windows and doors lead out onto the large deck with stunning views of the surrounding mountain landscape.
Low-profile furnishings were selected for this modern living room to keep all eyes focused on the view. A leather ottoman serves as a coffee table in the space, but can be cleared and double as seating when entertaining guests. Using non-traditional mountain house colors like bright yellow helps balance the home's bold architectural features.
The pool house is alongside Bear’s Best golf course at the base of a mountain with views to the Las Vegas Strip. The site is split by a dramatic level change by a berm from the front to back of the site. The design fits into the berm, enabling a lower level that benefits from natural daylighting. The views culminate in a rooftop deck which offers unrestricted views to the mountains, course and valley below.
This elegant, modern master suite has everything a couple could ask for. A sitting room sits just off the sleeping area. This sitting room contains a fireplace that helps to keep the couple warm and cozy in the evenings and modern, elegant furniture. A second sitting area rests directly across the space. This area is strategically placed in front of the couple's floor to ceiling windows that accent their exquisite mountain view. A king sized bed is situated directly in the middle of the space.
The open floor plan paired with ample natural light from the windows gives this dining space a wide open feel. The stainless steel table and orange chairs perfectly suit the simple, modern set up. No extra decoration or are is needed with the captivating mountain view visible from every angle.
Picturesque windows overlooks beautiful views of Snowmass, Colo. Exposed stone surrounds the contemporary fireplace blending rustic and modern together. A shag area rug adds warm texture to the living room, which features a mix of black upholstered and white leather furniture.
With soaring ceilings and soft, cozy textures, the living room of HGTV Dream Home 2014 offers everything there is to love about modern mountain living. Two walls of windows offer magnificent views of the wooded lot, golf course and mountain range beyond. Wrapping the entire living wing in glass, says architect David Bourke, creates the illusion of a floating ceiling.
Modern meets rustic in this spectacular kitchen at HGTV Dream Home 2014 created with a sleek, contemporary design and open floor plan. The kitchen is highlighted by a spacious kitchen island, state-of-the-art stainless steel appliances, dark cabinetry and contrasting granite countertops.
The house emerges from the hillside land with progressively stepping, flat, grassy rooflines. The exposed concrete, cedar and steel materials speak to its “built” nature—original and honest, rather than imitative of the natural surroundings. A butterfly roof capping the topmost level provides visual interest to the “cascading box” design while referencing the uplift of nearby mountain ranges.
