As much as we love writing about treehouses in rural areas, the fact that there’s such a dearth of them in the big city is a bit disappointing. That’s why we were so delighted to come upon this Fort Greene townhouse that fulfills our urban treehouse desires with an oasis-like backyard and roomy wooden perch amidst the leaves.

The fortunate renters of this charming triplex townhouse will also be able to save some money on furniture because it comes fully furnished. The home’s historic elements have been maintained, but are modernized. There’s also a space-saving Murphy bed for your guests to stay the night in the third-floor lounge.

But let’s get back to that treehouse. Below it, there’s a grassy area big enough for a dining table, fire pit, and plenty of room for landscaping. All of this goodness does come at a premium though and there is one catch. The home is renting for a six-month period for $8,500 a month.
