Sophisticated treehouse

  • Nashville, Tennessee
  • $3.5 million

Ever have the urge to escape to your own treehouse?

Welcome to the grown-up version -- complete with modern design, walls of glass and raised outdoor walkways.

Built in 1992, this five-level contemporary home, situated on 5.31 wooded acres south of Nashville, has three bedrooms, four full bathrooms and two powder rooms, says Sue Chilton, Realtor with Zeitlin & Co. Realtors.

"The architect designed it as if they had dropped the house into the trees," she says. "It's like living in a park."

The main living area features two-story ceilings, with walls of windows and a fireplace with stacked-stone hearth. The warm, plank floors are "reclaimed wood from old warehouses," Chilton says. And the stonework throughout the home "gives it a rustic, organic feel," she says.

It has its own elevator. The master suite, which occupies a full floor, includes a bedroom with sitting area and built-in bookcases, an office, a gym and his-and-hers bathrooms with a sauna and a hot tub, she says.

The 7,165-square-foot home also has two guest suites and a black and white kitchen "designed for entertaining and catering," says Chilton.
