Real Estate Porn: Badass Glass Houses

Forget what you've been told. If you live in one of these badass glass houses, you can do whatever you want. But you'll be far too busy reveling in the sweeping views and polished interiors to waste your time throwing stones.

You wish you lived here.

Location: Hilltop glass pavilion in Lugano, Switzerland
Price: $5,348,680
Size: 6,455 square feet
Key selling points: If you've ever dreamed of living in a really trendy glass horseshoe, here's your chance. This U-shaped home and its ultra-modern furniture were completed by Italian architect Jacopo Mascheroni in 2010, but its simplicity and functionality (every room opens onto the garden) is timeless.

Location: Toshiko Mori's "West Wind" in Osprey, Florida
Price: $9,900,000
Size: 7,120 square feet
Key selling points: New York architect Toshiko Mori, the former chair of Harvard's architecture department, created this stilted glass beach home with high ceilings, sleek interior surfaces, and private balcony, deck, and a swimming pool on two acres of botanical gardens. With its Ivy-League pedigree and (comparatively) low price-point, it's one smart buy.
