PAIR OF TREE HOUSES
After seeing these photos of a cool tree-house, said to be costing over $300,000, you will not be surprised to learn that two of these luxury tree houses are being built for Hogwart’s author, J.K. Rowling and her three children, ages 18, 9 and 7, in Edinburgh.
The timber used to build the tree houses will be built with timber from sustainably managed forests. She has also gotten permission to build a summer house of stone, will add a greenhouse, summer cottage and “garden room” folly with 30’ conical tower and chimney.
Several trees have been removed, and a line of tall conifer trees will screen the house from the roadway. Residents of the area have complained about the structure being out of character with and have a negative effect on the conservation area. The multi-million dollar author purchased a one-million pound 1970’ style property next door so she could enlarge the garden. She bought the 17th C. mansion she lives in for about $2,500,000 two and a half years ago.
