A ‘Hobbit House’  in Chester County, Philadelphia was designed by Architect Peter Archer, containing a world-class collection of J.R.R. Tolkien manuscripts and memorabilia, according to Associated Press reports, December 16, 2012.

Based on reports, this ‘Hobbit House‘ belongs to a lifelong fan of author J.R.R. Tolkien who wanted a worthy and private repository for the rare books and Tolkien-inspired memorabilia he has collected in 30 years of travel in the US and abroad.

“We wanted a single structure, a relaxing place that was diminutive in scale, for the owner to come and hang out and just be in solitude with his collection,” architect Peter Archer, speaking on the owner’s behalf, mentioned in a statement.

Moreover, the $150,000 cottage has no bathroom, no kitchen, no bedroom and no plumbing and the only thing to do in here is imagine.

Based on reports, like Bilbo Baggins from ‘The Hobbit’ Movie, the house is quiet and modest.

“Someone had seen this and wanted to build a proper house, and it’s under construction in Tasmania, the other side of the world, as we speak,” Peter Archer added.
