This gorgeous cliffside home defies gravity.
Show us a home that seems to float above the West Coast wilderness, and we're swooning. Case in point, this dreamy hillside studio designed by Ply Architecture, on the property of winery owner Ian MacDonald, that hangs above the Naramata Bench vineyards below.
