This Modern Colerain Township Treehouse is a Secluded Nature-Filled Escape 


A fascinatingly unique abode just hit the real estate market, offering modern appeal melded with the cozy comfort of nature.

Nestled among a wooded property in Colerain Township, this treehouse-style home (11723 Bank Road) was built for Bill Whetstone, a longtime designer and engineer at Formica Corporation, as his personal residence, and includes built-ins and details designed by Whetstone himself, according to the property listing.

The 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom home was built in 1975 and is situated on a private lot spanning 2-acres. The exterior of the home features cedar and stone which complements the home's natural surroundings, along with several sprawling decks bordering the house.

The first floor features an open floor plan with vaulted ceiling and large clerestory windows that overlook the property's nature. The custom kitchen was designed by Whetstone and offers plenty of storage.

Both the second and third bedrooms inhabit the first floor and feature beautiful wood-lined walls and ceilings. The vaulted master bedroom and bathroom is located on the second floor and overlooks the main level, with a walkout deck.

In the basement, there is a wood shop and art studio along with a three-car garage.

The home is priced at $349,000 and will be available beginning Oct. 20. For more info, reach out to listing agent Susan B. Rissover.
