If you’re a fan of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, you’ll be interested to know that some of the things from the books are actually real. Okay…sorcery and elven magic sadly still don’t exist, but one aspect of the books really is coming to life.
Green Magic Homes is a company that’s looking to make homes reminiscent of the Hobbit holes that are in the books and movies. They’re built into the sides of rolling hills, and they’re absolutely amazing.
If you fantasize about living in the Shire, now you can.
They’re beautiful and offer magnificent views of the countryside. They’re also eco-friendly, which is always a plus.
Not only are they gorgeous on the outside, but they’re awesomely cozy on the inside.
Check out how amazing this living room is!
Their designs range from simplistic and small…
…to a bit larger and more sophisticated.
And some are incredibly elaborate.
If you want one of these homes, you can head over to their website for a pricing guide, and also to have a look at some of the designs they have to offer. Looks to me like this would be an awesome investment!

This incredible little home is the ‘Hobbit House’, a hobbit themed cottage designed by architect Peter Archer for a lifelong J.R.R. Tolkien fan. It’s located in Chester County, Pennsylvania, a place dotted with picturesque barns and rolling fields, yet is surprisingly close to Philadelphia.
The Hobbit House was built for the sole reason of being a personal museum, a private place where one fan of the famous author could store all his Tolkien-inspired memorabilia. A 30 year collection of books, figurines and other collectables.
Exterior views of the Hobbit inspired house in Chester County, near Philadelphia:
Wouldn’t be a hobbit home without a small round wooden door.
The inside is just as cosy as you’d imagine.
It even has a Tolkien inspired chess board.
Archer, who had little knowledge of Tolkien’s work before designing the Hobbit House, explains:
Upon starting the project I read the book The Hobbit and watched the Lord of the Rings movies, but more importantly, looked at the range of writings by Tolkien, including amazing sketches he had done to illustrate his work. I remember at the start saying that we would be happy to design the structure but we were not going to do a Hollywood interpretation. We wanted it to be timeless. It was built in 2004 but looking at it, you could think it was from 1904 or 1604.
Now all I want to do is get comfy in that little hobbit home and smoke a pipe by the fire…that is until some pesky dwarves come knocking on my door wanting an adventure.
