literally a tree house

Did you ever fantasize about living in a treehouse?

Two of my favorite movies growing up were Swiss Family Robinson and Star Wars: Return of the Jedi.  While vastly different in story and genre, both movies prominently featured treehouse living that made me want one so badly.

If you want to live completely surrounded by trees – 5340 Quail Run is just what you need!

The Robinson family built their elaborate treehouse out of salvaged wood from their ship.  In Return of the Jedi, the Ewoks lived in a village built high in the trees on the planet Endor.

There is just something so fascinating about being surrounded by trees and greenery while hanging out in your home.  There is a sense of privacy and certainly peace that accompanies a treehouse. And that’s what you get at 5340 Quail Run St.

The Texas Society of Architects recognized the TreeHouse store in The Hill development at the northeast corner of Walnut Hill and Central Expressway in its recent design awards. The design was intended to be not only aesthetically appealing but also energy positive and environmentally friendly.

“We love the challenge as architects,” LRK architecture and design firm partner Craig Henry said. ““We’re proud to work with clients who share our values for placemaking and sustainable design.”

Initial planning for the building began in the fall of 2015.  It was a joint effort between TreeHouse, LRK, San Antonio-based deign architect Lake Flato, and Cypress Equities, the developer behind The Hill Shopping Center.
