But actually you read right, this beautiful building is not a sought-after family home about to go on the housing market but in fact an incredible garden wooden play-house complete with climbing wall, swing area and slide. It's been built by a talented American contractor called Adam Boyd of ATB Building Group. And he'd be happy to build one for you too. If you live in the Detroit area of the USA that is.
Designed and created for this two young daughters, Mr Boyd has gone all out to build a whimsical, wow-factor playhouse that is sure to make his girls the envy of all their friends.

Outside, trendy teal-green cladding looks smart against fresh white window frames while the veranda and balcony are kept stylishly natural. Hanging ferns on the balcony and potted flowers on the porch only add to its luxurious and homely look. The girls can play for hours on the natural wooden bridge 'extension' complete with winding tunnel slide, swings, climbing wall and net ladders.
Inside, the playhouse continues its draw-dropping appeal ready for plenty of imaginative play. The colourful kitchen diner has a sugary pink and pretty purple colour scheme.
After dinner, the girls can relax upstairs in their pretty lounge or get creative on the well lit (yes, that's an electric light) chalk-board wall.
If all that art, or outdoor play gets tiring. Up the traditional wooden ladder stairs, an elavated mezzanine bedroom / den is waiting with cuddly toys to cosy up with.
The attention to detail has not been spared in this fabulous play house, and Adam Boyd most probably hopes it will give his luckiest girls hours of outdoor play for years to come as he has lovingly marked his masterpiece for them to remember what a super DIY dad they have.
Look whimsical places? Could this be the most idyllic fairy-tale cottage to rent ever?
