Live Like a Wall Street Exec for a Fraction — The Tree House in Kessler, Under $500K. Candy Sale of the Week

Share News:

Someone ought to send this post to Occupy Wall Street: this home is proof you can live like a billionaire without spending $5 million on a house! Last week I wrote about that glorious, one-bedroom Tree House in Highland Park that darling David Nichols has listed for $5,750,000. Just. Love. It. But, it’s a wee bit pricey for some of us. Welcome to a version of that home for one-tenth the price. This tri-level treehouse at 1623 Nob Hill in Kessler Park offers privacy and relaxation on a gorgeous wooded lot with topography. There is a wrap-around “trex” deck (with a life span of 30 years) and stone patios for amazing entertainment space. Kitchen is decked out with requisite granite counters, breakfast bar. The water heater is tankless. The master is decked to the nines with acres of Ann Sacks tile, double sinks, marble counters, seamless glass shower with 2 huge heads, and a see-through fireplace. And everywhere you look, there is amazing architecture and windows windows windows.

The house was built in 1987, not all that old. Unlike it’s $5 million Highland Park counterpart, it has four bedrooms (versus one) and 3 baths. Square footage is 2384 on a fifth of an acre in Kessler Woods. You’ll get surround sound speakers in the lower living room, backyard speakers, electric gate from alley to access the garage, custom exterior lighting, and in-ground hot tub.

Guess how much you’ll pay for this Tree House? $485,000. I kid you not. Darling agent named Robin Sweet who, with that name, seems to be right at home here on Candy’s Dirt, has it listed.

Go ahead, put your feet up, Robin, but will you consider guest-posting?
