53 Hobbit Huts in Latvia

Hobbit Huts in Latvia

Posted on August 25, 2009 by


A Latvian billionaire implemented a fantastic project nearby Cēsis town in Latvia. If you’ve believed there is no Sun City, only Sin City, now you can see that you’ve been totally wrong. There people live according to special rules and have a routine different from those of common human beings. The three-storey houses are constructed of green materials and are located on various height so that the dwellers don’t see other houses from the windows of their own. If you want to live in a hobbit hut, you know now where to head.

    Looks great.

      I tried very hard to find at least one weak spot – and I did :D
      a) The stairway on picture 5 and the solution of the ground floor is very probably uselessly heavy. The Cyclopean stone structures are natural in mountains, on their steep slopes, but they seem overkill in Latvia.
      b) The chimney on 2nd photo is less than perfect. The stone plating (if used at all) definitely should not be ending some 50 cm above the roof.

    I want a planned retirement community like that when I retire

  4. Mike says:

    Nice, but some of those roofs are not “green”, and LATVIA ISN’T RUSSIA!

  5. John from sunny central PA says:

    Wow, that’s… pretty impressive!

  6. QAW says:

    Impressive indeed, and those look pretty darn expensive houses. Everything out of ordinary always costs a lot, even in eastern europe.

  7. daniel says:

    Ok, we need to hear from Hobbit! Where are you?

  11. 李钦 says:

    really fantastic

  12. ewrty says:

    The houses which have thatched roofs are 70% of the total cost of the house(and i mean building cost not market sale). I do love the thatched roof as it lasts for 15-20 years if it’s properly done and you don’t have to worry about anything. but in my opinion only couple of houses look nice, others are medicore and vulgar because they don’t mix in with the nature as there’s too much windows/glass and stone/rock… should have more lumber as it mixes in with all the Estonian, Latvian, Lithuanian area from the past times(history).

  14. pimp says:

  15. Robert says:

  16. Hobbit says:

  25. caku says:

    wow…these houses are really cool…and I have to say that these millionares in Latvia are a little bit different from our in Slovakia….because ours would never live in such a nature.
