hobbit house alberta

This $1.4 million home in Alberta looks like it belongs to the hobbits of Lord of the Rings

Have you ever wondered what it might be like to live in the hobbit house from Lord of the Rings? Well, if you're in Alberta, this dream is not far away. 

Located just outside Calgary and priced at a whopping $1.4 million, this earthen home has all the Tolkien vibes you could ask for. 

The house comes with a lovely outdoor patio.                 CIR Realty photo

The home, which is known in the community as The Hobbit House, was built in 1971 in an enormous pasture and even features beautiful views of the Rocky Mountains

If that isn't enough, the house is also surrounded by forests and natural ponds where you'll be able to see a ton of wildlife.

With 160 acres of land, the only way to spot this grass roof house from the air is by its massive outdoor patio.

While there is only one bedroom and two bathrooms, the unique interior includes winding narrow hallways that truly don't waste any space as there are beds built inside the walls. 

There is room for tons of guests to stay over with these beds built into the wall.     CIR Realty photo

Although it was originally built to host large events, this house is the perfect escape from the city.

Not only will you be secluded from almost everything and everyone, but you'll also get to be one with nature (mostly because the house is literally built into the earth).

Besides this, you can also take up some tennis on a private outdoor tennis court.

It has an incredible view of the Rocky Mountains.             CIR Realty photo

If you're ready to live like Bilbo and Frodo, this is the place for you.
