When you think of treehouses, you immediately visualize children playing in a makeshift small, wooden treehouse constructed by dad. The last image that would come to mind is an elegant treehouse that can compete with the most luxurious of homes. Welcome to the newest trend in architecture: the deluxe urban treehouse. Crazy as it sounds, these gorgeous architectural treehouse homes are built for adults and have all the comforts of a home or hotel while being surrounded by untouched nature.
The most significant benefit to today’s urban treehouses? Being away from it all while staying close to the city – if not within. Urban treehouses are placed in natural locations where they can be surrounded by the beauty of nature. However, most of them are located a brisk walk or drive away from the city. In some cases, they are placed even within the city itself while still attempting to instill a beautiful and quiet environment. Some architects even claim that urban treehouses will become the homes of the future!
Sleeping in Luxury
Treehouses don’t traditionally have an entire bedroom, but urban treehouses for adults… well, they have the most luxurious of bedrooms and bed sets. Worthy of the most expensive hotels, urban treehouses are more like elegant hotel suites.
