Tucked away in the English countryside, a charming home of literary proportions has hit the market and it’s asking for offers in the region of £700,000 ($920,000).
The 4,000-square-foot, four-bedroom “earth sheltered house” is fit for a hobbit – or, we supposed – a regular sized family too.
Dubbed “Underhill”, this subterranean home sits on almost an acre of land and thankfully the interiors are a little more modern than Middle Earth.
According to the listing the home comes with a large family recreation area, which consists of a swimming pool and various lounge and seating areas, a music room, a dining area, a playroom, a master suite and a stone vaulted cave with a peat fire – the perfect place to host wizards and fellowship meetings. Plus the views are pretty fantastic.
“Underhill” was constructed by the architect Arthur Quarmby and his family has lived at the property for 41 years.
WM. Sykes & Son has the listing.
