'Hobbit House' found in Pennsylvania

Architecture firm Archer & Buchanan took on a project that would open the eyes of many while raising the cheers of worldwide fans of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. Biblo Biggins the hobbit would have been proud.

Hobbit House

Located in Chester County, about 50 miles from Philadelphia, this 600 square-foot stone cottage belongs to one of the most hardcore fans of author J.R.R Tolkien - the creator of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. House owner Donovan had wanted a worthy repository to house his massive collection of hobbit collectibles which he had amassed over 30 years.

Hobbit House

The round Spanish cedar door is a heavy 200-pound door that opens with a single hinge, made possible by a Maryland blacksmith. Stones taken from an collapsed 18th-century low wall were used for the structure. The roof was made of handmade clay tiles from France. Butterfly windows, which opens from the centre pushing the two halves outwards from a centre hinge, serves as a strong complement to the door. Wirings from the heating, cooling, security and electrical systems were cleverly hid away too.

While this hobbit cottage currently stands as the best Tolkien house some we have seen so far, there might be another work to contest it's podium ranking soon. The same architect is now working on another secretive project with an area of 1500 square-foot which far surpasses the 600 square-foot size of this cottage. More room for the freeplay of fantasy interior design and architetural marvel. We can't wait.
