The ‘hobbit home’ in Bridgnorth, Shropshire, hides a cave and features vaulted ceilings and 24 pillars – it is on the market once again, now for £295,000
A popular ‘hobbit home’ with a cave conversion is back on the market – for nearly £100,000 more than when it last sold.
From the outside, the property appears to be a typical terrace home with two bedrooms and one bathroom. However, it boasts a secret cave in the basement made of sandstone.
The humble home in Bridgnorth, Shropshire, features vaulted ceilings and 24 pillars. It was previously owned by eccentric artist, Anthony Dracup.
Dracup, who died in 2002, hand-carved and built the cave in the mid-90s. The medieval-style feature also has a long wooden table fit for a banquet, with old-fashioned candle holders and ropes hanging from the ceilings.
The quirky decor continues into the rest of the Tardis-like home with ceiling-to-floor artwork and a rustic-style bathroom.
The home, which is situated on a railway street, is kitted out with train station signs.
In the kitchen, there is a lit-up entryway to the cave. The living room has been kitted out with wacky art pieces, signs and an old-fashioned telephone.
The property, which is currently being run as a holiday home, was previously listed in 2016 for £200,000. However, it is now being re-sold for £295,000 on Rightmove.
The description reads: “Dracups Cottage can only be described as a ‘museum’, in homage to the former owner, the eccentric artist Antony Dracup who lived here between 1980 and 2000.
”Located on Railway Street just a short stroll from the bustling High Street and currently used as a high-end holiday let attracting people from all over the world.”
This isn’t the only property to hide an impressive interior.
A house in Doncaster is tricking people with its relatively plain-looking exterior – but inside it looks ‘frozen in time’ and boasts an amazing kitchen that doesn’t appear to have been touched since the 1960s.
But it’s not putting people off – with prospective house hunters saying they wouldn’t change the unique interior. They have dubbed the semi detached property “so retro it’s in style again”.
The old fashioned kitchen appears to not have been touched for at least 50 years, and has wooden walls, retro benches, mid century units and kooky orange tiles.
he house in the South Yorkshire city also boasts a funky bright green bathroom, which people have said they would keep if they bought the property, which is for sale for £140,000.
