Precarious purchase

This lighthouse treehouse sits on a site the experienced a devastating landslide back in 1996 but that’s maybe not the primary concern with the property. The owner has been locked in a battle with the city about the treehouse, which is listed for $109,000 on a .26-acre lot. The treehouse is only accessible by boat or walking during low tide and still needs a soil test to remain in place. There is no bathroom, electricity, heat, or running water. Instead, it relies on a system that catches rainwater, filters it, and turns it into potable water.
