PHOTOS: Go Inside the Most Beautiful Real-Life Hobbit House You’ll Ever See

With an all-new J.R.R. Tolkien adaptation soon to be released to a theater near you (on December 17), we were excited to come across this beautiful hobbit house hidden on a beautiful parcel of land in Chester County, Pennsylvania. Take a peak inside and you’ll find extremely low ceilings, curved woodworking, and all sorts of charming amenities.

The tiny abode was created by architect Peter Archer. His mission was to create a space in which he could house a very rare collection of books and Tolkien inspired memorabilia. Plus, it is a great hangout spot for family members and friends.

In Archer’s own words, his passion project was taken very seriously:

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.
