J.R.R. Tolkien fans brace yourself because we no longer have to go to New Zealand to see the Hobbit’s Shire.
Someone in Islamabad has built a 11 kanal Hobbit-themed farmhouse. We’re wondering if its open to the public?
A Great Replica of the Hobbit House from the movies
The replica of Bilbo Baggin’s hobbit house from the Lord of the Rings franchise surfaced recently in Islamabad (whoever made this, we appreciate it).
In the movie, the hobbit house is miniature and cute even with all its space. That cottage would only be fit for a hobbit (Gandalf can stand just fine in the interiors though).
This same cottage has been reproduced for a life-size person. it covers a mammoth distance of 11 Kanals (fit for a big hobbit family or to host a band of dwarves).
Its for Sale
If you’re a die hard fan of LOTR/The Hobbit franchise then you can even live in this estate for real. Word is that the owner of the property is reportedly selling it in Rawalpindi/Islamabad (could go to the open house to see it for real).
Don’t worry, the house is built with contemporary needs in mind with a kitchen and bathroom (complete with indoor piping and electricity).
The hobbit farmhouse is located just a few minutes away from Bahria Phase 8 near Zarrar garrison on Adiyala road that connects Baharia town with DHA.
This road also connects to a gated community of over 65 farmhouses. That gated community of farmhouses is actually where this LOTR/The Hobbit inspired hobbit farmhouse is located.
While the exterior of the Hobbit farmhouse is pretty spot on true to the film set, the interior is more contemporary. The farmhouse interior has some impressive modern features.
