We've all wanted to live in a hobbit dwelling, with those beautiful round doors leading into a grassy hill. Now a Swiss family has recreated the Shire. They've built an underground house in the Vals region, packed with hobbit style.

The house is actually made of concrete, so it mixes the concrete aesthetic of bunker life with some cute hobbity features like a high ceiling criss-crossed with wood. Because the structure is mostly underground, it rarely needs heating or air conditioning. And it has a great hot tub out there on the circular patio. Plus the house is located right near some famous mineral springs. It was esigned by the architects of SeArch and Christian Müller.
