Anderson Cooper has a gorgeous vacation hideaway in Trancoso, Brazil.
"Within a day I was fantasizing about buying a house there," Cooper said. "Ben thought I'd lost my mind, and Andy, who is encouraging about almost everything, thought I was nuts, too."
But, he wasn't deterred. He found a perfect spot in a small town and put down some roots away from the city lights of his usual homes.
The home is made of recycled and reclaimed materials. It almost looks like it grew right there in the forest.
The description alone induces some major envy, but the pictures of the stunning property are enough to make even the most die-hard "city girl" consider a move to the woods. Here's what Architectural Digest had to say about the home:
"The first cottage -- colonial in style -- contains the conjoined living and dining rooms, a kitchen, and a veranda for alfresco meals. The two center buildings are guest bungalows -- one of brick, the other built using pau a pique (or 'wattle and daub'), a process whereby clay is layered over a wood frame. The last structure, tucked away near the pool, is a two-story tree house of reclaimed timber planks that comprises a master suite above and an outdoor living room and bar below."
Its owner agrees that its a stunning getaway spot.
"I've worked in 70 countries and traveled to even more, and I've never seen anything like Trancoso," the Anderson Cooper 360° host told the magazine. "It's a real place not a Potemkin village for tourists."
