If you’ve always wanted to live in a treehouse, this Somerville penthouse may be for you.

The industrial-style penthouse at 70 Howard St.  is the last unit left in this three-story Davis Square building overlooking Linear Park. Built in 2017, the unit is solar-powered, designed with sustainability in mind. One of three garage doors opens to an expansive, private roof deck with butterfly and vegetable gardens. Another opens to an outdoor shower.

Ashley Rose of Compass has listed the one-bedroom, one-bath penthouse for $1,599,000.

The 1,006-square-foot home’s wood-deck ceilings, paneling, and timber-and-metal frame build add to its earthy look. The home has polished-concrete floors with radiant heat and comes with one garage parking space.

Rose will host open houses from 12:30 to 2 p.m. on Saturday, May 11, and Sunday, May 12.
