TREEHOUSE FOR SALE, $1.5 MILLION (Well…. property too)


Most of you know about the world-famous Horace Burgess  Treehouse which, for many years was an attraction that brought people off the Interstate along Cook Road to Beehive Lane.  Well Horace is selling the treehouse and all the land that goes with it.

The treehouse stands at 97 feet tall and is built on an 80-foot tall White Oak tree with a 12-foot diameter base. The tree house became too much of an attraction in 2012 and was closed by the Tennessee State Fire Marshal for fire code violations over the protests of many local residents and Mr. Burgess…since there are no building codes for ‘treehouse’.  Currently, any visitors to the treehouse who are caught on the property face criminal trespass charges.

Here’s the official listing for the treehouse and property.
