The Tree House
For 100 years the Oak Tree stood alone. Its lot remained vacant until just five years ago when the 2-story home was tucked behind it. Now branches surround the large windows of every second-floor room. The new owners/builders carefully blended old and new, with craftsman woodwork, wainscoting trim, and reclaimed hardwood floors throughout. Antique light fixtures, including the stairwell Swarovski crystal chandelier and three copper street lights hung upside down, join period replicas to illuminate spacious high-ceilinged rooms.
