If you’ve always dreamed of having a tree house, there is still time to indulge in your fantasy whatever your age with one of these homes for sale.
The tree houses may have initially been designed with children in mind, but they could also provide a space for adults seeking a quiet haven away from the main house.
Our pick of four tree houses includes a rustic version with a living tree growing out of the centre, surrounded by sofas and a wood-burning stove. There is also a designer version with twin turrets linked via a bridge.
We pick four tree houses for sale that come in different sizes and shapes, including this luxury version (scroll down for more details) at a six-bedroom property for sale in Corbridge, Northumberland
Tree houses are an ideal extra space for children and adults, as Britain continues to be in lockdown, a year on.
Tom Parker, of property website Zoopla, said: ‘Many of us had the childhood dream of having our own magical tree house and the great news is it’s not too late to make your dream a reality.
‘There are currently several spectacular properties for sale in Britain that come with their own tree houses and are perfect for adults and children.
‘Even better, they’re located away from the hustle and bustle of the main properties, making them the perfect place to let your imagination run wild, or simply enjoy some peace and quiet.’
Tree houses come in all sizes and shapes, and can help to create treasured memories for families.
Paul Cameron, of Treehouse Life – a company that specialises in bespoke tree houses – said: ‘When we grow up, we always remember the tree house we had as a child, or the tree house we wished we’d had – it is a very emotional place that remains perhaps one of the most engaging childhood memories.
‘Something that kids have in abundance is a natural ability to pretend – for me this is the magic that a tree house can inspire, one day it is a castle, the next a cafe…a place to be a princess and where you go to be an adventurer.
‘This is what is remembered later in grown-up life, the place where we could pretend and be whatever we wish.
‘For grown-ups who enjoy their ‘inner-child’, or for whom being child-like is when they are most relaxed – the tree house is where they too can pretend and perhaps for a few passing minutes also be an ‘Indiana Jones’ or whisked away to the most idyllic hide-away desert-island cabin.’
