Always cavort in the forest with this fantastic home in the Wisconsin woods.

This “hobbit house” looks like a fantasy novel setting, but not only is it real, it’s also for sale. However, it now looks pretty close to having a new owner. After just eight days on the market, he would be under contract and no longer accepting screenings.

“There are a lot of split levels in the Midwest, but nothing like this,” real estate agent Sara Cappechi says ABC7 of the River Falls property, which amounted to $315,000. “What’s really cool about walls is that [it’s] spray foam insulation that they painted white.

The two-bedroom, two-bathroom domed home is sunk into a hillside and set on 3 acres of private woodland. It has three wood-burning fireplaces, five skylights, two Google Nest-controlled ovens, and a striking resemblance to Bilbo Baggins’ address in “Lord of the Rings.”

Its rustic appearance has made it a hit online, where its popularity has attracted interested buyers from far beyond its county. “We had agents touring Kansas this morning. Someone from Milwaukee. We had someone from Oklahoma,” said Cappechi, who admitted never having seen “The Lord of the Rings,” while acknowledging that she “probably should have had it before listing this property.”

The ‘bermed-earth-sheltered’ home was built in 1972 and comes with a two-car garage, is ‘surrounded by nature and privacy’ and is particularly energy efficient, according to his list.

While one of a kind for the area, the complex is far from the only real estate to look like something straight out of a “Hobbit” sound stage: In 2020, a similar earthen structure in the middle of Vermont listed for sale for $220,000.

“Our country is so attached to studs, to drywall, to plywood, to drywall,” property architect Bob Chappelle told a local news publication. “All you get is a box.”

In her home, residents enjoy a “fairytale home with multiple open rooms, skylights, a huge wooden tub, a cherry dining room table, a cherry kitchen screen, a gorgeous cherry headboard and rough-hewn granite floors and walls,” according to the listing at the time.
