How would you like to live in a treehouse? Now you can, you just need a cool $7.4 million.

The ultimate tree house in far North Queensland is now officially on the market.

It’s called ‘The Edge’ – and for good reason. The luxury residence sits atop Port Douglas’s highest peak on Flagstaff Hill overlooking aqua blue ocean, tropical rainforest and misty mountains.

Designed by Charles Wright Architects, the property won the Eddie Oribin Award for Building of the Year given by the Australian Institute of Architects.

Port Douglas real estate agent Barbara Wolveridge told the Cairns Post the owner of the stylish abode is selling to move closer to her family.

“It’s an extraordinarily impressive home,’’ Ms Wolveridge said.

“It has a marvellous feel about it and that’s before you look out to see the view”.

Treehouse Lounge to view

The property boasts 180 degree views across Four Mile Beach, to Double Island and Mossman Gorge, and a 10m wet-edge swimming pool.

“It’s the best home I’ve ever seen in my life – it floats above the canopy,” she said.

The innovative design was conceived as a cantilevered living platform to make use of the site’s steep landscape. Masterful hydraulics and structural engineering mean the hilltop home will withstand cyclones (let’s hope so for $7.4 milliion).

For my money, I’d be hoping for a few more bedrooms – there are just two – one main bedroom and one guest bedroom. The rest of the house is the lounge, dining room and outdoor living and entertaining.

If you don’t want extra bedrooms when the grandkids come to visit, this could be the perfect tree house for you.

Let’s not forget the 10 metre wet-edge swimming pool and the suspended sun bed on the balcony.

  1. The house looks magnificent , but at 7.4 mill would expect 3 bedrooms, of course u could always throw down a few mattresses here and there, ( but u would need storage of same) I’d like the $7.4 million to have in my mittens mmmmm do lots with that amount of $$$$$ heeheehee

  2. I was going to buy it but only two bedrooms, come on!!! What stunning views in love with the engineering of it some ppl are very clever.

  3. No, after living in semi rural Perth on acreage for nearly thirty years I am over living in a bush fire prone area. We had a nasty one on Saturday, midnight, very close and it took a massive amount of engines over 6 1/2 hrs to get it under control. I fell asleep exhausted at 4.30am after changing my bore water to soak around the house and livestock and packing my car with ‘must saves’ as the fire got closer. Can’t wait to get away from all the flammable trees.
