Now I don't know the *exact* specs on Bilbo's or Frodo's hobbit house, but I'd guess the home for sale in Hudsonville for $399,900 has a *bit* more space at 1900 square feet.

Aside from just looking cool, or if the owner is a HUGE fan of the The Lord of the Rings books and movies - why build a house into the side of a hill?

Well, to that last bullet point above, it's eco-friendly.

According to Rocket Homes, "Hobbit Homes" also know as "earth-sheltered homes" or "bermed-earth homes", exist all over the world because they’re a cost-effective housing alternative. The soil surrounding the home helps to insulate it; Rocket says, "a thoughtfully designed hobbit house can be extremely energy-efficient."
