On the subject of fanciful treehouse-like abodes, which Curbed has been tracking closely recently, one can't leave out the Bungalow Estate, a raised wooden vacation rental overlooking a rubber plantation and jungle in the southwest Sri Lankan town of Mathugama. Completed by local architect Narein Perera, the home references traditional Sri Lankan watch huts that allow farmers to keep track of their crops at night. Steel beams prop up the structure, a three-story cabin with overhanging balconies, open-air living areas, and a bedroom on each floor. The view, unsurprisingly, is extraordinary (the same probably can't be said for the smell though.)
