The ultra-cool, multi-story, big-people’s tree house on Bob Shortridge’s property in Powhatan stands ready to party or receive overnight guests. Three sets of stairs take you down to the lake for a dip, up a bit to the large screen porch, or up-up-up to the single-room efficiency.
The single-room guest quarters in the tree tops includes a wraparound porch, and comes complete with full-size day bed, tidy living space, and hot-and-cold air conditioner. A make-shift dining space includes a small dining table and built-in bar overlooking the lake. The kitchen is comprised of a small refrigerator, microwave, toaster oven, and water cooler. For bathing, it’s a quick trip outside, a run down to the lake, or sponging off from an antique pitcher and chamber pot.
This timber frame tree house is back-to-basics at its best, and another must-see when you visit our Sales Office in Powhatan, Virginia.
