Luxury treehouse fitted with hot tub and fireplaceChris Walley spent seven months and £60,000 building the Treehouse Hideaway.






  • If man has built what he claims is the tallest habitable treehouse in the UK, which comes kitted with a Jacuzzi and 60-inch cinema screen.




    Chris Walley has spent a whopping £60,000 on the Treehouse Hideaway, which sits 20 feet off the ground and overlooks animal enclosures at Druidstone wildlife park, near Canterbury.
    The 54-year-old used scrap wood from builders' merchants and driftwood from a nearby beach to construct the home.
    Walley started designing his second home nine months ago. When it came to actually building it, he chose not to use any scaffolding – he simply shimmied up and down the tree using ropes instead.
    Scroll through the picture gallery above to see the building in progress and take a tour of the finished home.


    Fully-kitted home
    Walley’s treehouse has both plumbing and electricity, so you get all the amenities you’d expect to find in a normal home – loo, gas hob and even a dishwasher. But what really caught our eye was the romantic log burner, which sits below the giant cinema screen we mentioned earlier.
    Walley told The Sun that he embarked on the ambitious project because he was bored and needed something to do.
    “I said [to my wife] I wanted to build a treehouse at the top of the garden and that was it,” Walley explained. “I built it from scratch. It was a bit ambitious and I’m glad it’s over — it’s half-killed me. There are several treehouses in Britain, but none that are habitable.
    “People often have to go abroad to France if they want to stay in one. We have had nothing but good responses so far.”
    Is it better than the hobbit house?
    We love quirky self-built homes here at MSN Money. Immediately upon seeing the masterpiece above we were reminded of another home we covered a while back.
    Dubbed the Hobbit House (pictured below), Simon Dale’s creation is actually built into a Welsh hillside.
    Although it has far fewer features than the treehouse, it did cost markedly less to build – Dale says he spent just £3,000 from start to finish
