Pining for the Forests
Dreaming of bathing in leaf-filtered sunbeams while taking in stunning 360-degree views of California’s Redwood forest? Well wake up, buttercup: dreams really do come true and such a spectacular perch really does exist, in beautiful Bonny Doon, California.
Rent to Own
It’s called the Pinecone Treehouse, a pinecone-shaped microhome suspended among those legendary forest giants just south of Santa Cruz. Designed by Dustin Fieder of O2 Treehouse, this exquisite and fully-functional forest canopy shelter has actually been available for some time, albeit as a $300-per-night rental accommodation by Airbnb.
Forest Come, Forest Served
Those who’ve loved their visit to the Pinecone Treehouse but have hated leaving are in luck, however: the home’s owner has listed the one-of-a-kind super structure for sale. The listing price of $150,000 may seem a bargain at first glance, especially considering the skyrocketing real estate market in the greater Bay Area, but this intriguing abode is – ahem – a rather unique piece of real estate.
