Glass treehouse home featured on HGTV hits the market for $1.2M

(DH Photography/Compass)

If you've been dreaming about the glass treehouse home featured on the HGTV series "Look What I Did" since it aired in 2007, you'll be excited to know the home just hit the market for $1.2 million.


For those who aren't familiar with this unique home, it blurs the line of indoor and outdoor living with 30-foot glass walls and 11 sliding doors. Located near Lake Travis at 2803 Manitou Dr., the home is hidden among the trees off a cul-de-sac.

This architectural gem is two stories with one bedroom but makes up what it lacks in indoor space with outdoor space—a second lot included in the sale opens up the opportunity for a pool, storage or guest home.

The home sits in a prime location in the hillside, with access to the Indian Creek hiking trail, a spring-fed creek and waterfalls. It's also a short drive from downtown, Lake Travis and Lake Austin.

It was originally built in 2003 as an architect's personal residence by John Allen. He sold it in 2007 to the current owner.

Aside from getting some screen time on HGTV, the home was also recently used as the central filming location in an upcoming film, the online listing says.
