Even as adults many of us willingly admit that having a treehouse would be awesome, and the Garrison Treehouse, designed by the NYC-based studio Sharon Davis Design, is better than we imagined. This 200-square-foot playful retreat is quaintly situated amongst the meadow, forest, orchards and hills of the Hudson River Valley in Garrison, New York (where Davis herself has an eco-retreat), and includes fire poles, a twisty slide, a balcony and even a writing desk.

Designed to withstand the various weather conditions experienced in the Hudson River Valley, the house is made of polycarbonate, steel, and white cedar. The finishing are constructed from steel and wood and were designed off site by a local furniture craftsman. The nets on the playhouse, however, were fashioned on-site.

The netting located on the front of the structure functions as stairs leading up to the trap door and ladder. A second net inside the house provides seating and access to the firehouse escape poles. The upper level balcony houses a fold-down mahogany desk from which sitters enjoy views to the meadow and adjacent apple orchard, as well as a winding slide connecting the roof deck and main space.
