Although it is firmly rooted to the ground, this midcentury post-and-beam abode in Santa Barbara, California was designed with a treehouse in mind. Oak and sycamore trees surround the angular wooden home, and all of the glass-walled rooms and decks look out on treetops, mountains, or a creek. Built in 1964 in a postmodern style by the architects Edwards & Pitman, the updated three-bedroom dwelling comes with two separate outbuildings "that can be used as kids playhouses, Dad surfboard hangout or Mom painting room," the listing helpfully suggests. The house comes with charming period details like a built-in desk in the office, tongue-and-groove decking on the ceilings, and a master suite with a large patio. It's all going for $2.25M.
