Cradled among the towering trees of Mill Valley, Calif., is a home that is as dramatic as the forested backdrop that surrounds it. Made of solid redwood beams, weathered barn siding, and glass, the $1.8 million property evokes a certain sense of arboreal living, much like that of the tree house found in the 19th-century novel turned Disney flick "Swiss Family Robinson," if only more contemporary and refined.

Built in 1976, the Marin County home offers some 2,745 square feet of rustic living space, with four bedrooms and three bathrooms.

Cradled among the towering trees of Mill Valley, Calif., is a home that is as dramatic as the forested backdrop that surrounds it. Made of solid redwood beams, weathered barn siding, and glass, the $1.8 million property evokes a certain sense of arboreal living, much like that of the tree house found in the 19th-century novel turned Disney flick "Swiss Family Robinson," if only more contemporary and refined.

Built in 1976, the Marin County home offers some 2,745 square feet of rustic living space, with four bedrooms and three bathrooms. A great room with vaulted ceilings and walls of glass forge a connection between the interior and exterior of the home, while a vaulted loft shows off the architectural flair of the designer. Other highlights of the property include numerous wood built-ins and nooks, a sauna, and an expansive second-story deck area that features a hot tub.
