With the top of the roof reaching 10 meters high, and being situated in a secret location in Hampstead, we believe this is without doubt the highest (and probably the most spectacular) treehouse in London. From the top of the treehouse you can look over West London (and even look down on the arch at Wembley stadium).
The treehouse itself boasts gothic doors and windows, is fully insulated and lined, has fold up desks on the lower floor and oak bunks on the top floor. There is even a toilet and basin, for an over-night stay!
Support for the structure is provided by pioneering steel piles which are screwed down into the ground to a depth of 2 meters. This ingenious solution avoids the need for any holes to be dug or concrete to be poured, both of which can cause serious problems for the tree roots.
The roof and the exterior walls are cedar, but the turret at the front of the treehouse is clad in copper.
The treehouse was constructed for some very lucky children – a place to play or do their homework, either way it was deemed necessary to have wireless internet access, a phone line, stained glass windows and a chandelier with a dimmer switch.
Life’s not so bad after all……..
