Whether it’s a childhood dream or a real-life adult goal, living in a treehouse sounds like the ultimate escape from the mundane. Take this three-bedroom, one-bath home in Aptos, California, not far from Santa Cruz. The two-story, 1,250-square-foot dwelling is accessed from a long bridge and sits level with the treetops of the redwood forest.
Located on over an acre, the house features warm hardwood accents and floors with a modern twist on treehouse style. Floor-to-ceiling windows offer views onto the canopy and ocean beyond, while three separate decks provide access to the outdoors. The main level includes an open floor plan, with a sleek kitchen, skylights, and an airy living room and dining room.
A twisting staircase leads guests to the sleeping quarters downstairs. Each zen-like room blends wood and white panels, while the bathroom relies on rocks and natural materials for an outdoorsy feel. The property would make a star vacation rental, but we can’t help hoping someone turns this into their own private retreat in the trees.
