Now that the British Pound has taken its first real hit in recent memory, you might start thinking about buying up some real estate in England. This 4-bedroom, 4,000-square-foot home called Underhill is a steal at $917,000. It comes with a detached garage, enough parking for 6 cars, and almost an acre of rolling green hills in West YorkSHIREland. Oh, and it looks like a Hobbit-hole.
Designed by architect Arthur Quarmby, Underhill has won multiple awards for its unique "Earth-Sheltering" construction. The house is built partially underground so it blends in with the surrounding landscape, but its interior arches and skylights still manage to turn out rooms with high ceilings and floods of daylight so your Hobbit-hole tenure won't feel just like the one you spent living in your mama's basement.
