Homes With Great Play Spaces for Kids

15 Spring Valley Drive, Wimberley
For sale: $392,000

Sometimes kids want the real thing -- or as close as they can get. This Wimberley playhouse is made to look like a general store complete with a sign and rocking chair on the front porch. The main residence is also suited for a family with three bedrooms and a large eat-in kitchen.

16698 Agate Pass Road NE, Bainbridge Island
For sale: $465,000

5 Mansfield Court, Mendham
For sale: $775,000

This Mendham playhouse has some definite curb appeal all on its own. A shingled roof, front porch and white trim are complemented by a manicured lawn and Adirondack chairs — not a far cry from homes in The Hamptons.

2821 Maryland Hills Drive, Henderson
For sale: $995,000

Palm trees and sand -- what more could a kid want? Try a swingset complete with a climbing wall, slide, fire pole and more. The property also has a pool and water slide for escaping the hot afternoon sun.

Seemingly out of a cartoon, this green-and-purple treehouse is a fun addition to this Miami Mediterranean. The backyard also features a resort-style pool with a cascading waterfall.
