Room with a View

I’ve heard of traveling by boat to get home, even catching zip lines, but never calling home - the top of a lookout tower. How cool would that be to see for hundreds of miles in all directions? It certainly makes for some interesting real estate allowing you to include sustainable practices already in a natural environment (e.g. forest, lake, or mountains).

These owners are using reclaimed materials, increasing their recycling efforts, and have an appreciation (or fascination) of avoiding classic noise pollution. Whether you refer to them as modern day castles, eco-bounty escapes, or down right treehuggers, I foresee a unique trend emerging.
