Tree House Listed for $3.6 Million

Tree houseThis article was originally featured on Quicken Loans Mortgage News.  According to Zillow, a Hollywood Hills home once owned by Ellen DeGeneres and after that, the late Heath Ledger, is now for sale for $3,695,000. This home is affectionately named the “Tree House” because of its private wooded area and forest-like views. Unlike other celebrity mansions, this house only measures to be 1,861 square feet. It has two bedrooms and two full baths, and boasts a Shangri-La remodel.

In case you didn’t know what a Shangri-La remodel would look like, this term was first invented by James Hilton in a novel that described a fictional place with a mythical Himalayan utopia. Apparently in this case it would refer to a peaceful, nature oriented architecture, as the house literally opens up to the tops of trees.

For under $4 million, you can buy this luxurious getaway, and enjoy the cozy comforts of a small but Zen habitat. For more information, check out Zillow’s original article, as well as our previous mentions of extraordinary homes. (Photo courtesy of Zillow.com)

This all ended when President Obama’s neighbors decided to sell their house. While social media and online marketing has long been used by corporations (i.e. Sony’s Stop Writing on My Wall Campaign), this is one of the few times we see individuals using media to sell their house.

According to zillow.com, the Grimshaws (owners of the house next door to the Obamas) tried to market the fact that their house is next door to the President’s house. The couple hired the Matt Garrison Group, a sales team within Coldwell Banker, and created a website promoting the sale of this house.
