Luxury Out on a Limb: Fancy Treehouse For Sale

Elaborate Tree House

I have been accused of being “out of my tree” on more than one occasion and the accusations are probably right on target. I come from the generation that climbed trees. Somewhere between my childhood and me becoming a parent the idea of a kid climbing a tree just got to be too dangerous. I used sit in the top of a big oak tree in my back yard for hours at a time. Sometimes I would pretend to be a super hero, sometimes I was a secret spy, sometimes I would just dream. If you have ever climbed a tree you know what I mean, if you haven’t you don’t know what you are missing. Fortunately the “up a tree” experience has been enhanced greatly, as you will see when you check out this 70-Thousand dollar tree house!

“People think ‘tree house’ and imagine creaky plywood forts where kids sneak away to have their first kiss,” said Roderick Romero, the Manhattan designer who built that Long Island aerie in 2009. “But it’s moved so far beyond that.” Above and beyond, actually. A new generation of luxury tree houses is elevating the dream, with designs and prices no sidewalk lemonade stand could finance.

You might think I am a bit odd or slightly crazy for missing my moments alone in the top of a tree but I would beg to differ. I think kids need a place to go and dream and imagine and see the world from a different perspective. I know that this kid did.
