What Houzz contributors are saying:
Location: Chester County, PennsylvaniaSize: 600 square feetThis Pennsylvania homeowner and collector of Tolkien books and artifacts worked closely with architect Peter Archer throughout the design and build of this hobbit-inspired cottage. Archer and his team constructed the house to look as if it had risen organically from the stone wall.
An 18th-century stacked stone wall on the property made this site, a short walk from the main house, a natural choice for the Hobbit House. From the beginning, Archer envisioned a structure built to look as though it had risen from the wall. "Other materials were selected for their colors and textures, timelessness and compatibility with the stone," Archer says.A stone path leads from the main house to the cottage's front entrance.Stonework: Ted LeMastra, Allentown, Pennsylvania
