Treehouses for Sale Right Now

An airy, comfortable treehouse for sale in Louisiana
If you dream of a life in the treetops, this could be your lucky day.

Today’s treehouses go well beyond the hand-built hideouts you built as a kid. The best of them are comfortable, airy homes where you can enjoy treetop views from the kitchen, deck, or soaking tub. Tempted? Take a look at six treehouses that are on the market around the country.

  • Whittier, North Carolina

    Woodsy retreat in the Smokies

    Whether you’re roasting s’mores by the fire in the pine-and-hickory living room or firefly gazing from one of the two spacious decks, nature is a constant companion at this rare round residence. The 2,570-square-foot three-bedroom, three-bath has panoramic views of the Smoky Mountains and easy access to hiking trails. When you’re ready to switch it up from relaxing and hiking, other outdoorsy adventures are close by—it’s just a ten-minute drive to Sequoyah National Golf Club and Smoky Mountain River Adventures.

  • Quilcene, Washington

    Bay views from a house on stilts

    The stilt setup of this architect-designed three-bedroom, two-bath puts it high above the forested floor of its 21-acre lot. It also creates room below the living/dining room for an open-air patio with views of the oyster-filled Dabob Bay. And the patio is just one of several outdoor spaces that make the 2,250-square-foot home a nature-lover’s oasis. Nearby, hikers will find plenty of trails and beaches to explore. And history and antiques buffs will spend happy hours checking out the historical museum and Wildwood Collectibles in nearby Quilcene, a low-crime, pedestrian-friendly town with a population of 591.

  • Lake Arrowhead, California

    A forested perch east of LA

    You’ll need to summit a winding wooden staircase to reach the front door of this two-bedroom, two-bath with treetop views of Lake Arrowhead. Fishing and hiking are the go-to ways to spend a day here in the San Bernardino Mountains. But locals, 86 percent of whom are homeowners, are also fond of the Blue Jay Cinema and the Tavern Bay Beach Club, which hosts the an Art & Wine Festival each summer.

  • Truckee, California

    Woodsy luxury at Lake Tahoe

    The views of Lake Tahoe’s famed ski mountains are unbeatable from the upper balcony of this lofty 5,100-square-foot 4-bedroom, 5-bath. But that’s just one of three floors, all of them connected by a hand-forged circular staircase that wraps around an old-growth pine tree trunk that anchors the center of the house. The area is famed for both winter and summer sports, and sophisticated restaurants fill Truckee’s Gold Rush–era downtown.

  • Ponchatoula, Louisiana

    Civilized camping in the trees

    Barbecuing, camping, and star-gazing become year-round pastimes at this leaf-level dwelling. Inside, there’s a kitchen, tiled living room, and bedroom with a fireplace and sleeping loft. An expansive screened porch perfect for evening entertaining opens onto a deck overlooking the house’s 9,583-square-foot property and the Tangipahoa River. If you need anything, the vibrant town of Ponchatoula, where the median age is just 35, isn’t far. Known for its abundant spring strawberry harvest, the town celebrates with a Strawberry Festival every April.

  • Fancy Gap, Virginia

    The beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains all around

    If you’re ready for a fuss-free lifestyle in the Blue Ridge Mountains, check out this two-bedroom, two-bathroom treehouse. Each facade of the hexagonal structure has glass panels that let you enjoy the forested lot even while you’re inside. And the deck includes a screened gazebo, so you can linger as long as you like on a buggy evening. Don’t let the name of Fancy Gap throw you—the town has a lower-than-average median house price of $148,000 and a tight-knit population of 238 residents who share pastimes ranging from hikes at Blue Ridge Parkway to making music at Fancy Gap Pickin’ Porch.
