On the Market: A Berkshires Escape with a Treehouse Vibe
The home is called TreeTops, and provides ample views of the mountains.
89 Undermountain Road, Egremont
Size: 6,092 square feet
For anyone who never did quite shake that childhood dream of living in a treehouse, this luxe escape is for you. A private pond. A sprawling plot with 30 acres to explore. Decks that make you feel like you’re floating among the tree branches of the towering pines. It’s no wonder that this place is dubbed “TreeTops.”
With five bedrooms, five bathrooms, a wide-open layout and a host of common spaces, it’s the kind of place you’ll want to invite your crew of adventurers to escape into nature (with high-speed internet, though, because you’re not barbarians). The already-secluded property is bordered on three sides by over 300 protected acres, with breathtaking views of the mountains. The long private driveway from the road leads you past a private wildlife pond, and through the clearing, you can just spot the home with its contemporary log-cabin look.
Inside, the woodsy vibe is that of a treehouse turned luxe. You’ll find exposed wood beams and detailing everywhere, with the wood floors aglow in the sunlight cast by the copious windows. Take root in the expansive living room with its waterfall-shaped grand windows and double-height stone fireplace. Handsome, weathered beams border the kitchen where the cabinetry and fridge seem to blend into the woodwork. The sleek island calls for quick breakfasts, while you and guests can plant yourselves at the dining room table for leisurely dinners by the door to the wraparound deck.
Social spaces include a second-level billiards spot where you can shoot pool in full view of the action on the first level. Bedrooms range from vaulted-ceiling beauties to bunkbed-friendly spots for a flashback to summer camp, with the main bedroom suite on the first floor. There’s also plenty of space for a guest cottage for future owners to make their mark.
Other top amenities you’ll find among the treetops? Hit up the private sauna and then make a splash in the heated indoor pool and spa, with its vaulted ceilings and windows that overlook the rolling grounds.
