Designing and installing the latest automated systems for luxury homes throughout the Home Counties is all in a day’s work for MDfx. However, this year, with the help of Crestron, it created two outstanding treehouses in the grounds of a property in Windlesham, generously kitted out with an Xbox ONE, a wall-mounted 46-inch Full HD 3D TV, wireless speakers, multi-room sound system and subwoofers for an entertainment system many houses would envy.
A NEW LEAF
The initial transformation of this luxury Surrey home began in 2011, when MDfx was commissioned to install a top of the range home automation solution. For this they chose a Crestron control system which included full lighting control, audio distribution throughout, a home cinema and comprehensive fire and security systems. Then, earlier this year, the homeowner looked to them again to complete another project at the house, but this time they were asked to provide something rather different and definitely unique. Working with well-known luxury treehouse-builder, Blue Forest, MDfx transformed two of the property’s stunning treehouses, set in the stunning grounds at the rear of the house, into Crestron-controlled media and games rooms, both of which cost over £100,000 to create.
Each tree house is connected to the main house and its Crestron control system, which gives them full-access to all of the media sources in the house, including a film server, Sky HD, digital radio and high-speed broadband connection. All of the different technological functions are cleverly controlled by touch panels on the wall and wireless Crestron remotes.
Both treetop dwelling is also equipped with its own bathroom, the obligatory fireman’s pole, a climbing wall, slide and a suspended bridge to connect them.
Enouhg to turn anyone reading this green with envy, though these new additions to the world of installation were built just for the children, it’s more than obvious that the big kids of the family undoubtedly enjoy these extras too!
