Treehouses have always been enticing for people. In most cases, these structures are constructed around a tree but there are also some modern treehouse projects that are achieved without affecting a tree. Case in point is the Willow Treehouse located on a secluded, unique, romantic site in the small town of Willow in New York, USA.
Made completely out of wood, it is a vacation rental to experience living high in the trees, without actually being on a tree, surrounded by leaves and nature. It can provide the atmosphere needed for full relaxation away from the city’s busy life.
Designed by Antony Gibbon and built by William Johnson, the Willow Treehouse is a passionate project that gives a new meaning to treehouse architecture. Its cantilevered design and angular shape are what make it different from the others.
The wooden construction is built high above the ground to create an atmosphere expected in a treehouse – elevation and panoramic views. There is a large floor-to-ceiling window in front offering a clear view of the vista and allowing in natural light to save on energy during the daytime. Guests can enjoy a view of the Catskills Mountains, and even a nearby lake is visible right from within the treehouse.
The interior space is cozy, stylish and spacious enough for a couple or a solo adventurer. Inside is an open-plan lounge that opens out to two balconies on either side or a loft bedroom with windows on two sides. A separate bathroom and second bedroom are also in the back of the structure.
Guests can cook meals, enjoy reading, just chill or relish the outdoor hot tub. The treehouse has separate spaces for chilling, writing or just enjoying the view! It is a secluded retreat and there is no access to the internet and even a TV.
Allowing the guests to immerse themselves in nature is the main motive of this unique piece of architecture. You can rent this property on Airbnb for about $380 per night. If you always wanted to live high above the ground with chirping birds, here’s literally your chance to do it conveniently.
