Middle-earth is a lot closer then you think, like right here in the US… in Chester County, Pennsylvania. Meet architect Peter Archer, and he is the designer of this real life ‘Hobbit House’. The owner is a huge J.R.R. Tolkien fan, and wanted the house so he could store his 30 year old collection off Tolkien inspired memorabilia.
The house is roughly 600-square feet and nestled in a dense thicket of beautiful trees. It almost feels like you are in the Shire. If lived here I don’t think I could ever leave.
There are currently hundreds of houses built similar to this one in the US and other countries. Just goes to show how popular his books were. Make sure to share this on Facebook by clicking the button below. (h/t Viral Nova) (Photo credits – Matt Rourke/AP)
