Modern Alaskan Waterfront Home
While on a hunt for houses near the North Pole, we were sidetracked by this beauty on the rocky shoreline of Alaska. Perched on a 200-foot crest overlooking the Sitka Sound, this modern waterfront home is a sight to behold while offering panoramic views all its own.
Location: Sitka, AK

Throughout each room, towering glass panes face the ocean and neighboring (but dormant!) volcano, Mount Edgecumbe. The home was clearly built with its spectacular surroundings in mind, and we’ve got to hand it to them – the view from the marble shower is super cool.
The vaulted wood ceilings and hand-scraped walnut floors add rustic charm to the modern home. We’d like to curl up on the couch with a glass of wine (poured from a bottle picked from the home's wine cellar) and watch the sunset over the water any night of the week.
