Billionaire Builds $194k Playhouse For His Kids

A billionaire has treated his two children to the ultimate Christmas present – a $194,000 playhouse which costs as much as a three-bedroom home. The two-storey timber ‘home’ is a replica of the family’s chalet in the foothills of the Swiss Alps, having been built in Britain. It cost $194,000 and 2,000 man-hours to build, while a further $38,000 to $64,000 was spent on transport and installation – making it the world’s most expensive playhouse. The building – by Norfolk-based company Flights Of Fantasy – comes with double glazing, solid pine flooring and bespoke carved Swiss eaves, while lighting is provided by more than 400 decorative bulbs. The living room has a stone chimney, illuminated by led lights, and is packed with bespoke furniture and TV equipment.” w/ photos. LINK
