Kersting Architecture designed 'On Water,' a vacation guest house in Wilmington, North Carolina.

Located on 3.61 acres of peninsula stretching towards Futch Creek, the On Water residence offers its inhabitants plenty of space and beautiful views. Spectacular western sunsets over the creek and mesmerizing sunrises over the Atlantic Ocean? Sign me up! A pool is also located in the backyard, a few steps from the home. The views are accessible from the interior, which consists of a kitchen, living area and three bedroom suites.

Shade can be obtained via the column-less porches, formed by cantilevered bedrooms. Meanwhile, those looking to acquire a tan can lounge on the rooftop terrace. The home is comprised of painted prick, exposed steel, stained mahogany and white trim, all chosen to complement the main home. Stats for Peaceful Relaxation Havens Trending: Older & Mild
