Stone Cottage Design Inspired by ‘The Hobbit’


Are you a fan of The Hobbit series and of J. R. R. Tolkien? If the answer is yes, you are going to love this next design. The Hobbit House was created by a company located in Pennsylvania, called Archer and Buchanan and they managed to recreate the entire house from the popular firm series. As you can tell just by a look, the owner is a huge fan of The Hobbit and the talented architects managed to build him the house of his dreams. Each and every detail is carefully executed, but the most eye-catching one is the circular door. This particular piece took a lot more time to make, as it was first estimated as no craftsmen seemed to be suitable for the task. Luckily, the architects have found an open minded ironworker, who able to create the perfect door. Take a look at the pictures to convince yourself of the genius of Archer and Buchanan and to discover all the hidden treasures of the house. Sadly, no one is going to live inside the Hobbit House as it will host the owner’s collection of Tolkien collectibles.

    OMG, this is totally gorgeous!! My husband wants to build another house, and this is the only way he’d ever get me out of our present home that he built 32 years ago. I LOVE this!!! I’d love to find plans??

      Take a look at They have a book you can order with very similar styles of homes with floor plans. Small and large homes with floor plans. I agree with you. I’d love a home like this!

    its just a house… its not anything spectacular.. it mighta taken a lot of time and effort.. but it is still just a house with a round door

  20. Celtcgrrl says:

    It is such a shame they won’t let people stay here. Imagine being a super rich dude/lady that created such a thing for people with terminal illnesses to visit or something. Now that would be freaking cool.

    The fittings for the round window are brilliant!

    Stout wood up the center, beautiful decorative hinge in the middle and discreet ones at top and bottom, so the two sides of the window open out like butterfly wings. Truly impressive iron work.

  28. Mary Beth Henkel says:

    Is so grand,yet peaceful and serene.Very inspiring,not only the home,but the outside surroyndings. I have dreamt of going away to a quiet,place like that,full of beauty,peacefulness,to relax,enjoy,and to do my writing. As a place and home such as that,is so inspiring! I would absolutely get my books of poetry put together,as well as write my entire book. YEP,DREAMIG BIG, BUT NO OTHER WAY TO DREAM. I will one day finish,just not in such an awesome inspirational home or surroundings as that!
