Temple Botanica

You’ve never lived in a giant treehouse overlooking a city before? Well, now is your chance. The architectural masterpiece situated on the mountainous garden slope of a large property is a fully equipped two- storey house with a balcony jutting out over the garden below. There’s plenty of private space, access to the pool and garden, and a mountain walk accessible to guests. The two-minute walk from the parking area to the tree house is worth it if it’s just for the views. If you’re lucky you might wake to an owl eyeing you from its eyrie in the trees outside your window.
