Did you love playing in treehouses as a kid? Imagine getting to live in one as an adult! The housing trend is becoming more and more popular as people seek out unique homes that feel like a retreat. But just because the structure is nestled in nature doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice size or luxury.
This week’s featured house on Animal Planet’s "Treehouse Masters" is a prime example of how you can live large while embracing your childhood nostalgia.
The show’s host and treehouse master Pete Nelson channeled famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright to create a stunning triple-decker 1,200 square-foot home on the shores of Lake Barkley in Kentucky.
A long ramp leads up to the wooden-sided home, and as you enter the main living area, sunlight floods the room through the large crystal-clear windows across the wall. Wood beams cover the ceiling and earthy tones are incorporated into the interior decor to give the space a natural vibe.
A spa-like bathroom is also on the first floor. It features a flat stone sink, tiled shower and warm lighting.
The large kitchen features light wood cabinets as well as a special one with stained glass accents. There’s a chevron-styled backsplash and stainless steel appliances.
Of course, every treehouse needs a ladder, and this one is no exception. A wooden ladder leads to the second story where a relaxing neutral-colored bedroom awaits.
Each level has its own deck with stunning views of the landscape. A rooftop deck is accessed from the third floor, offering even better views and a cozy outdoor lounge area.
The treehouse, which serves as an extension of the owners’ main home, sits on a six-acre piece of land. You can see how it all came together at 10 pm ET on the July 29 episode of Animal Planet’s "Treehouse Masters."
