Asheville, North Carolina is known for its thriving arts and cultural community. Nestled in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains, the homes have a picturesque vista of riverside trees. And 4,000 feet above sea level, you'll find an extraordinary house.
It's a three-story castle called the Hobbit House.
Although the castle is anything but cramped, the entire home comes in at just 850 square feet.
It was “The Lord of the Rings” spirit of the Shire that inspired this gorgeous house.
Its rustic balcony overlooks the scenic Wolf Ridge Ski Resort.
Inside, the living and kitchen area are downright cozy.
A fireplace and French doors keep this home perfect for all seasons.
The layout makes perfect sense for everyday living in a small space.
Even though the home is small, full-sized appliances make up a sizable kitchen.
The stairs offer some inspirational words on the way up to the second floor.
At the top of the stairs, you'll notice the gorgeous wood detailing and stained glass windows allowing for maximum light.
Don't you want to just snuggle up with a book in this bed?
The second room has custom-built bunk beds and a foosball table for keeping visitors entertained.
The bathroom has a granite-walled shower in warm earth tones.
And the grill was brilliantly located for prime sunset viewing.
Hot tub? Yes, please.
With a stone turret, arched doorway and flagstone entry, you'd be sure to feel like a king in this micro-castle.
