Underhill is an innovative new home in Huddersfield, England that beautifully and deftly brings together Lord of the Rings architectural sensibilities with the kind of modern luxuries that many people have come to expect these days.

This home in Huddersfield is partially buried in a hill using innovative earth sheltered construction, where the earth is utilized as a thermal mass in order to make it possible to stabilize the temperature. The home is fitted with four spacious bedrooms, a kitchen, a study, dining room and a gorgeous stone cave complete with a fireplace.

This hobbit-inspired home is a great example of the kind of fairy tale-style design infiltrating the architectural world, although what makes it impressive is the fact that it still manages to integrate luxury amenities.
