Magic Home

Located in Surrey, England, "The Magic Home" treehouse by Blue Forest looks to be straight from the Harry Potter movies. In addition to the unique play area outside, there's a secret spiral staircase hidden behind a revolving bespoke bookcase, which leads up to a playroom with a dormer window and glazed balustrade. "Giant books have been stacked to one side to create a creative writing desk, and a moon light hangs down from the ceiling. You might think that a small wardrobe is an odd thing to find in a children's secret playroom but just like the wardrobe in Narnia, if you open the doors you'll discover the entrance to the tube slide which curves all the way round the treehouse to the sandpit outside," said its creators.
