When a boat enthusiast sets out to create a luxury villa, you get the Lilypad. The brainchild of Australian designer Chuck Anderson, the solar-powered home floats on the waters of Palm Beach just north of Sydney. Its timber clad exterior houses an open living area with a kitchen, wine cellar, bathroom, and a sleeping loft. The lower level walks out to an expansive terrace for al fresco dining and sunbathing. To take advantage of the waterfront setting, the property comes with paddle boards, fishing equipment, and a tender to take to the neighboring beach. For those looking to stay dry, a 24 hour concierge service can arrange for on-site massages.
