In Their Home Overlooking Lake Zürich, a Family Savors Modern Living—and Staggering Natural Beauty

Tucked into a hillside with sweeping vistas of Lake Zürich and the Alps of Lucerne, this secluded residence in the tiny village of Erlenbach, Switzerland, literally opens up to the lush outdoors and is a water lover’s paradise. It makes sense, then, that its owner, an international executive whom everyone calls E. T., grew up near Europe’s biggest waterfall, Rhine Falls, about an hour’s drive away. “Once you’ve lived close to water and overlooked a lake, it’s very difficult to move away from it,” E.

They say “the seventh is heaven” of Paris’s Seventh Arrondissement, the upscale neighborhood that is arguably the city of light’s most aristocratic quartier. Famous for Les Invalides—the resting place of Napoleon—it’s also home to numerous government ministries, embassies, ex-pats, the musées d’Orsay, Rodin, and Maillol, and the city’s elite, with the legendary Eiffel Tower, visible across the neighboring Champ de Mars, as a punctuation mark.
