Originally billed as an architectural masterpiece, this treehouse beat out hundreds of others to be voted by tens of thousands of readers of US real estate website Zillow as their favourite featured home this year.
Filled with 1970s soul, this unique architect-built home has 3 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms and sits on the side of lake just outside Seattle on Bainbridge Island. It features reclaimed timbers and features sourced from the surrounding area and maritime industry, including a charming porthole window set into the shingled walls.
Nestled into the woods, yet standing tall above a glass-roofed sunroom and sweeping curved balcony, each of its five stories contribute generous banks of windows to partake of the beautiful water views.
Inside, the property features soaring timber-lined vaulted ceilings and exposed beams throughout.
It sold earlier this year for USD875000 (just over AUD$1.1million) which we think is not bad for a treehouse!
