Treehouses are cool and all, but a secret garden hideaway? Now that's dreamy. If you always dreamed of having a hidden hangout in your garden—be it for yourself or for your kids—good news: You can now buy one pre-made on Etsy. Well, if you have $13,000 to spare, that is.
This magical, Fabergé egg-inspired, wrought iron structure is made with steel bars that have been double welded at every joint for extra sturdiness, and features a steel ring around the base so it can be anchored into a concrete pad. It measures 13 feet and six inches high and 9 feet in diameter at its widest point. Climb the spiral ladder and you'll find a loft inside made with solid cedar planks that measures about 8 feet in diameter, and the bottom portion features a diamond-shaped doorway so you can use the space below as well.
Not only is this arbor pre-made (seriously, all you have to do once it arrives is secure it and add your favorite climbing plants), but since it's spacious and sturdy, it's great for kids and adults alike, too. Turn the lower portion into a private, gazebo-like area where you can entertain friends and family, while the upper loft portion is the perfect treehouse-like retreat for the kids. And that trellis structure isn't just great for ivy and other trailing plants—it's also just right for weaving fairy lights for an extra stunning touch.
There's only one available on Etsy at the moment, so if this is the backyard addition you've been looking for, act fast. It retails for $13,500 with free shipping, so if the price tag is too steep for your budget, feel free to join me in daydreaming about it instead.
