It isn’t necessary that you can’t have awesome water views if your home doesn’t located near an ocean. It coud be located on shores of some lake like this house on shores of Lake Walensee in Switzerland.
The Walensee House is designed by K_M Architektur and features not only view of the lake but also view of beautiful mountains near by. Being surrounded by nature the home is made mostly of wood which blends with surroundings very nice. Only large glazings and simplicity of shapes shows that it’s a piece of contemporary architecture work.
The interior is also designed in quite minimalist style in order to highlight views of nature instead of furniture objects.
