Style and Design
A classy little tower playhouse with a compact footprint and quality finish, the Charlie Tower is an ideal tower playhouse for the smaller garden where space is limited. It's basically a Charlie wooden playhouse securely mounted on a robust platform of pressure treated timbers with step ladder access to the side. The ladder features wide steps for secure footing and overall the Charlie Tower is of safe, sturdy construction with a balustraded balcony to the front of the playhouse. There's a split, stable style door and three windows to ensure a bright interior.
The playhouse, including the roof and floor is constructed in 12mm tongue and groove cladding on robust 44 x 44mm framing. Windows are glazed in safety styrene. The stand consists of a strong frame of stilts with a sturdy stepladder for access.
The playhouse itself measures 5'1'' (1.56m) high at the apex of the roof giving plenty of headroom for growing children. The height at the eaves is 3'8'' (1.11m) with the door opening an accommodating 3'4'' x 1'7'' (1.02 x 0.48m). The playhouse is raised on an 88cm frame.
The timbers of both playhouse and tower are pressure treated, removing the necessity for annual treatment. A 15 year rot free guarantee applies.
Attractive scalloped fascia boards, window boxes and shutters are available at an additional cost.
The Charlie Tower is delivered ready for assembly by the purchaser.

The Charlie Tower wooden playhouse was new to the market for 2016 and is a welcome addition to the world of tower playhouses. It compares nicely with its nearest competitor the Bunny and we think it definitely has the edge with its tongue and groove construction throughout and, perhaps more importantly, its pressure treated finish. It's a little pricier, but as long as you have the budget we think the extra is money well spent. In particular the pressure treatment removes the requirement for regular maintenance, saving you both time and money. As bare wood, even with pressure treatment, can quickly take on a worn, weathered appearance though, we'd still recommend you apply a decorative finish at the time of construction and renew this when necessary. As you can see the illustrated example has been finished in appealing dark green with white trim.
