If a child’s treehouse could grow into adulthood, the home at 88 Stoney Lea Road in Dedham gives an idea of what that might look like.

And that sizable treehouse is for sale.

Listed at $1,050,000, the home, built in 1969, includes four bedrooms, three full bathrooms, and one half bath with about 4,000 square feet of living space. It sits on 1.19 acres of land and has four parking spaces.

Seller and artist Lisa Houck put her own personal touches into the home, listing agent Hope McDermott said. These include sandblasted glass doors plus the yellow and black tiles around the family room’s fireplace. The roof was also replaced when she bought the home, and she decided on stripes using two different colored roof shingles, according to information on the home provided by McDermott.

The family and living rooms each have a fireplace and deck access. The kitchen features granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, the listing says. The home office has its own separate entry. Plus, there’s an exercise room.

With four levels total, the bedrooms occupy the third and fourth levels. The master bedroom has a full bathroom, a walk-in closet, and access to one of the home’s decks, according to the listing.

The home also includes many windows and decks, allowing for residents to appreciate the woodsy setting. The decks on the second level are actually set at the same height as nearby treetops, McDermott said.

“[Houck] loves the breezes that are created through the large sliding glass doors, the natural setting,” McDermott said. “She does feel like it’s like being in a treehouse.”

The home also feels “very open,” according to McDermott. Some rooms feature high ceilings, and there’s interesting angles.

“It has a central staircase that the house kind of wraps itself around, and the views, it invites the outside in,” she said.
