Location: Elk, Calif.
Price: $4,000,000
The Skinny: Set high above the Pacific atop an 180-foot bluff, the Prow House was built to take full advantage of the staggering ocean views. Walls of glass enclose the corner great room in the L-shaped structure, which is oriented in such a way as to shield the swimming pool and hot tub from the coastal breezes. Designed by the Seattle firm of Adams, Mohler and Ghillino, the 4,000-square-foot house includes three bedrooms, five bathrooms, "a world-class Proteus garden," and an "art gallery." According to the listing, the structure is sited low on the property to comply with guidelines of the California Coastal Commission, preserving views from the highway. Completed in 2001, the house is now listed for $4M.
