As diverse as the rosy-cheeked Hobbits themselves, every smial, as Hobbit-holes are known, reflects the unique personality of its inhabitant and nestles into the hillside amid a sea of lush greenery.
Winding along the Water’s edge the Lakeside path was home to fishermen, net-makers and other hobbits living upon the banks of Hobbiton’s lake. Where the snaking road cut back inland and began to climb the Hill was nestled the only dwelling in the village without an iconic round front door. Number 34’s arched doorway was painted a rusty red, with views back towards the end of Bagshot Row and the swampy fens.
Each an individual dwelling, the Hobbit holes lend themselves splendidly to creative placement in your cabinet. With a flat back and shallow depth of only 55mm, they can be placed on mantles, cornices, shelves and in windows.
This gorgeous little environment is an exacting miniature replica of the movie set that can be visited at Hobbiton in Matamata, New Zealand. It was designed by the same artists and craftspeople who worked on the movie.
34 Lakeside is an Open Edition piece.
