Built in 2007, the Tree House is located in the extensive and beautiful gardens of an historic country house – Kinlochlaich House, on the south facing slopes of the Appin hills.
The Tree House is designed to be contemporary and green. Outside it has natural lime rendered walls, traditional local sourced slate roof and arched windows to complement the surrounding historic buildings. Inside it is spacious and light with the octagonal shape allowing dramatic use of lots of Scottish oak and with a whole oak tree to support the roof. The open-planned living space encompasses a kitchen, sitting area and dining table, with a separate double bedroom and bathroom. Half the main room is made up with a gallery, offering a great spot for children to sleep in, or an area to gaze down on the rest of the house and appreciate the details within.
Stepping onto the decking outside will find you amongst a canopy of trees, and like the building, immersed in this enchanting private spot.
The Tree House is ideal if you are looking for something different for a special holiday, honeymoon or weekend break. It is the perfect escape for those looking for a quiet and relaxing break, an idyllic romantic retreat, or just a base for walking and exploring the local area. This well equipped property is spacious, quiet and warm, offering guests a magical and quirky experience.
The gardens boast a huge variety of specimen plants, woodland walks and seating areas, tennis court and table tennis facilities, and BBQ area.
