Do you dream about modern architecture embedded into the landscape?
"The Treehouse" is a spectacular one-of-a-kind architect designed, embedded into the landscape, completely remodeled mid century dream home (2900 ft finished living space: 4 bedrooms + 3 baths), custom built in 1968 by one of the best local builders (Buck built). The Treehouse is built on a spectacular corner lot, floating atop and overlooking tens of acres of Munn woods wilderness and unspoiled woods- a city park where no one can build.
The house placement (living room elevated 25 ft on top of the ground), along with the articulation of the wood frame and floor to ceiling windows overlooking a lush treetop view as far as you can see into the horizon creates a breathtaking effect; the wood frames seem to draw the forest through the home. Two large living rooms with floor to ceiling windows overlooking nothing but acres of forested wilderness provide a very relaxing, generous and comfortable space for mingling with friends and family. The upstairs generous size living room also serves as home theatre, allowing for a 10-12ft projection screen. The unique layout and decor of the living room make the space very relaxing and inviting with diffuse natural light flooding through the expansive windows.
A modern fully updated open kitchen with bar seating and island also overlooks the woods panorama. The kitchen features stylish built in IKEA birch wood cabinets with inside and under cabinet lights, and built in pantry, Silestone countertops with built-in anti-bacterial protection, butcher block, stone veneer and metal tile backsplash, modern track lights, imported ceramic tile, spices wall, and all stainless steel appliances: gas stove, Bosch dishwasher, microwave, IKEA fridge, double stainless steel sink with garbage disposal.
The home has two equal size master bedrooms (270 sqft each), with zen modern remodeled bathrooms featuring a stone rock shape sink and a granite vessel sink, imported ceramic tile and cork floors, tall mirrors, natural massage pebble shower floor. The lower level office (or 3rd bedroom) is flooded with diffuse natural light and is connected to a screened porch. There is also a guest suite on the lower level with a full separate updated bathroom, and direct access to the family room, deck, a dry bar and laundry room. The home was completely and tastefully remodeled with high quality materials (solid maple wood, imported ceramic tile, cork floors), and is the type of home typically featured on the cover of Dwell magazine. The home is partially furnished; there are numerous IKEA and custom build closets and cabinets through the entire house.
The stained cedar and steel wire deck is suspended 15 ft above ground, and stretches generously for the entire width of the house (36 ft) providing plenty of wildlife and bird watching opportunities. The lower level also hosts a modern custom built wine cellar space that blends reclaimed red wood, cork and aluminum walls, ceramic tile and custom light features. Outside the house you are welcomed by a zen terraced rock garden with a water feature. Board walk park entry starts next to the house leading to miles of wild trails alongside a creek and you are going to find for sure your secret preferred morning coffee spot from which you can observe deer approach you at arm's length.
Gorgeous views year round. Morning views are zen and uplifting. Winter views are so breathtaking, that seasonal depression is guaranteed to disappear.
This one-of-a-kind contemporary home has the secluded feeling of a cabin in the woods, yet it is only 10 min walk to the ISU campus, walking distance to grocery stores and restaurants, and a 3 min drive to the highway). No visible neighbors for 240 degrees around the house (airplane view of the house included: house is at the corner at the lower V in the picture).
