What’s New In Art, Architecture, And Design
From art and jewelry, to wellness spaces, to bold colors, here’s what’s in vogue.
We can all use a little more light in our lives, and the same is true for our homes. A well-designed sunroom, solarium, or conservatory is a coveted space for anyone looking for a blend of indoors and outside.
Whether it becomes the spot for relaxing with a morning espresso or basking in the final rays of the day, a sunroom offers a special way to enjoy nature in comfort and style. Here are five elegant luxury properties around the world with sunrooms that shine.
This 5,300-square-foot penthouse in the heart of Brera, historically one of Milan’s most artistic neighborhoods, has style to spare. From the Gaggenau gourmet kitchen with matte lacquered surfaces to the contemporary architecture carried throughout the property, this home has much to offer—and that’s before you arrive at its two incredible terraces, one of which features a solarium. With a fully functional outdoor living space including sofas, a private shower, and kitchen access, this sunroom is perfect for soaking up every drop of Italian sunshine, even when the temperature dips.
Beverly Hills, California | Joseph Cilic, Sotheby’s International Realty – Pacific Palisades Brokerage
A state synonymous with sunshine, it’s no surprise that Californian architecture often seeks ways to let in every bit of light. This impeccably designed estate sits on three private acres and includes all of the amenities one expects from a Beverly Hills property. Guests can take advantage of the pristine tennis court, elegant pool area, home theater, and wine cellar—or they can find a moment of tranquility in the conservatory decorated with classic European features and accents. The lush plants and greenery perfectly complement the outdoor views at this unique residence.
Wassenaar, Netherlands | Netherlands Sotheby’s International Realty
For a claim to history, why not call this six-bedroom, five-bathroom national monument in the Netherlands home? Situated on over seven peaceful acres, the private manor includes access to a 9-hole golf course, a swimming pool, and a gravel tennis court. The property’s spacious conservatory allows for plentiful natural light and provides lovely views of the surrounding flora and fauna—an ideal example of how a well-situated sunroom allows for even more connection to nature.
If you’ve always felt more at peace spending time outdoors rather than inside, look no further than this shaded New York estate with an all-glass family room. The property is awash in understated beauty and includes a pool, spa, and designer cedar shingle cottage.
However, it’s the vaulted conservatory that’s a truly aspirational amenity. With thoughtful design features and French doors for easy access to the grounds, it’s a testament to how a sunroom can be a seamless transitional space that acts as an extension of the home.
This 10-bedroom Latvian manor exudes old-world charm in addition to modern-day luxury. Fully restored and enhanced with natural materials and finishes, this home is situated on 223 acres of landscaped grounds complete with a fish-filled pond and a sauna, pool, and bath house. The property’s crowning jewel may just be the sunroom—warm wood accents add an instant coziness to the conservatory’s metal-and-glass frame, making the space ideal for semi-al fresco dining while soaking up 360-degree views.
A sunlit space is an asset to any home, and these five properties show how the perfect sunroom, solarium, or conservatory can be a magical space for enjoying outdoor living, indoors.
