Home of the Day: A tree-topped retreat in Beverly Glen

Reclaimed timber beams, irregularly shaped windows and a metal chimney stack add an air of playfulness to this tree-topped retreat in Beverly Glen. Originally a cabin built in 1910, the house was renovated and expanded in a more contemporary style in 1987 and has a chef’s kitchen and a sound-proofed office. At the entrance to the home is a fountain feature fashioned out of a producing well.
