Part of the recently closed Butterfly Gap Retreat in Maryville, a city just south of Knoxville, Tennessee, this treehouse is now up for sale along with a cluster of other guesthouses making up the center.
Perched on six acres, the 600-square-foot one-bedroom-one-bath unfurls across three main wings on a gently sloping clearing and is propped up by way of stilts. A series of staircases connects each level, including an open-plan living room and kitchen, a bedroom with large windows on all sides, and a screened porch overlooking the woods.
The residence, which was designed by local architect Gary Best, features a sturdy wood construction and lovely details like curved tongue-and-groove ceilings in the living room and bedroom, decks off each level, an outdoor shower, and more.
Although Butterfly Gap has closed, it appears that the home remains a part of the gated community, which shares a lake and a glazed community center. Located at 134 Gap Falls Lane, the little vacation home is offered at $239,900. Here’s your chance to own a little slice of heaven.
