You have seen the world’s most beautiful homes, ugliest homes. But today, we are going to present you the list of amazing secluded homes in the world.
Let’s have a look at the list of 8 secluded homes around the world.
1. Red Cottage
This beautiful isolated house sits on an island aptly named, Just Room Enough Island. It’s a part of the Thousand Islands in the St. Lawrence River, mounting the border of the U.S. and Canada. Just Room Enough was bought in the 1950s by the Sizeland family who wanted a unique place to build a holiday home known as Red Cottage.
They built their house with the walls just reaching to the edge of the island and gave the island its special name. The plan backfired on the family who was looking to find a quiet retreat and instead had to deal with tourists and sightseers stopping by to take a look at their unusual home.
2. Hermitage of San Colombano
Located in Italy between Vicenza and Rovereto, the Hermitage of San Colombano sits high on a mountainside looking down upon the city below. 120 meters up the cliff, it was clearly built to give its inhabitants a reprise from the hustle and bustle of the world below.
It was built almost 700 years ago in 1319 and is named after the Irish saint Colombano. To gain entry to the structure you need to pass through the Leno gorge and then climb up 102 steep steps up the gorge.
Every Christmas there is a candlelight walk up to the hermitage to signify the pilgrims climbing up the steps to pay respect to the saint.
3. Casa Malaparte
Casa Malaparte also was known as Villa Malaparte, is located on Punta Massullo on the eastern side of Capri, Italy. Construction started in 1937 by well-known architect Adalberto Libera. The house is a red masonry box shape with stairs leading up to a fabulous roof patio.
The house can only be reached by crossing the island on foot and takes about an hour and a half to walk there from the summit.
4. Villa Mecklin
Located in the Finnish Archipelago, Villa Mecklin is as picturesque and secluded as you can get. Built in a small depression in the natural rock, the villa was built using all basic materials.
On one side looking past the structure you see the water and looking past it from the other side you see the land, surrounded by trees, exposed rocks and plenty of vegetation. The highlight of the house is the terrace, which is large and faces out toward the water for the view of a lifetime.

5. Stockholm, Sweden
Several miles away from Stockholm, Sweden, there’s an incredible house that sits on the highest point of a small island, stretching out just 137 square meters.
The house is isolated, beautiful, and includes a living room, guest room, glass doors, and a kitchen leading out to a large deck, plus a sauna (a small room or building which is used to experience dry or wet heat sessions).
6. Katskhi Pillar
130 feet above the hills of central Georgia sits Katskhi Pillar. Georgia adopted Christianity as the state religion in the 4th century and the Katskhi Pillar became the site of a small church built in the 7th century.
Its sole resident for the past 20 years has been a Georgian monk. A fun fact about the pillar – women aren’t permitted to climb to the top.
7. Artist Studio Fogo Island, Canada
Fogo Islanders are simple, independent people who live to fish and enjoy the serenity of the beautiful landscape around them. Located on the island are six artist studios built by the Shorefast Foundation.
The idea behind the studios’ design is to create a geometric structure that would contrast the natural setting around them. The studios stand on pillars near the sea and each is isolated and can actually be moved to any part of the island.
8. Thatched hut, Panama
Looking more like a scene out of Gilligan’s Island, this small island with a thatch-roofed hut is the epitome of peace and quiet. The pole style thatched roof hut is common in Panama and can house an entire family.
Building materials are tree trunks for the main pillars, bamboo poles as support and different types of leaves for the roof. A well-made hut can usually stand for as long as 30 years.
9. House On Ellidaey Island, Iceland
Basically built by a group of hunters out for a puffin, this home looks like lodge which is seated in the palm of an excellently shaped island constantly bombarded by merciless winds. This house is often misunderstood with island home Bjork owns, which shares a common name, but located very much in the west.
10. Crystal Mill
Crystal Mill in Colorado, USA, is now a vanished compressor above the Crystal River; used to produce compressed air to power tools and machinery back in the day. Currently, it’s reportedly unoccupied but owned privately and only accessible with their specific permission. It’s one of the popular isolated dwellings in the world.
11. Wordie House
This early British scientific base in Winter Island, Antarctica, present on the west coast of the southern continent, was initially accommodated between four to five explorers; it was built using materials from an abandoned whaling station in the late 1940s. Inside, it offers a kitchen and living room, office, dog room, generator hut, and toilets.
12. Eremo di San Colombano
Although this eighth-century monastery in Trambileno-Rovereto, Italy, might not be a party house you’re in search of, the fact that it’s located within a rock, it earns some serious badass points. To access it, you have to climb a staircase of 102 stairs engraved in the rock.
13. Rock House
Sitting on a boulder in the middle of the River Drina in Serbia; this small lodge was first constructed by a group of boys in the late 60s who used it as their summertime clubhouse. Since then, it has been destroyed some times due to the flood, but it is rebuilt every time.
14. Solvay Hut
This cliff hut in Zermatt, Switzerland is one of the tallest in the area of more than 13,000 feet, and was built back in 1915. If you bravely climb the Northeastern Ridge of Matterhorn to its front door, you have 10 beds to welcome you.
15. Cliff House, Australia
This gravitational-based four-story house is still only in the unapplied stages, but should be entitled in this list for its sheer fearlessness. The designing has been given on the rock face, with a layout, unlike traditional homes; having a living room at the top; bedrooms down, and instead of an open rooftop, an embedded glass patio at the bottom with wide-ranging views of the absolute ways down below.
