Hiding among the green forests of Germany’s Grünwald is a $23-million masterpiece home.
Completed in 2014, the five-bedroom, five-bathroom compound includes a main home spread across four levels; a summerhouse; and a guesthouse with two apartments. The landscaped roofs almost camouflage the nearly 9,000-square-foot home, even from an aerial view.
The ceilings and walls are covered in an array of leaf, branch, and petal shapes you’ll have to take a closer look to see. And of course, the house is loaded: it includes a library, a gym, a music room, and a special car elevator that accesses an underground, six-car garage.
A nearly Olympic-size indoor swimming pool sits among colorful mosaic decking and tree-like green columns. Outside, a second pool is disguised by park-like gardens to look like a natural swimming hole.
