“One home to rule them all, one home to find them, one market to sell them both and in the darkness buy them,” is close enough to the Black Speech of Mordor, right? If you’re a fan of Lord of the Rings, then do we have something precious in store for you. Elijah Wood, the actor who played Frodo Baggins in the famous trilogy, is selling his Venice, California home for almost $2 million. The home, a total of 1,408 square feet, includes two separate bungalows making it the perfect place to either Airbnb or use as a detached, single-family retreat. The bungalows each include one bedroom and bathroom, full kitchens, and natural hardwood floors. Tucked away behind its beautiful landscaping makes the home feel like a hobbit’s paradise, but you can also get out of the house since it sits right near the popular Abbot Kinney Boulevard.
The first bungalow includes vaulted ceilings with wood accents and an eye-catching bright red craftsman door. Situated on either side of the front door is a nook that offers more seating space with windows providing natural light. The cork flooring continues throughout the main living space while the bedroom features black wooden planks. The shotgun kitchen includes stone countertops, stainless steel appliances, and yellow wood cabinetry. The back deck is stained a rust red and overlooks the property’s second bungalow.
With the perfect entertaining space, the second space includes a dining space that flows into the kitchen divided only by an open bar. Painted hardwood floors flow from room-to-room while pops of color from the green countertops and red wooden accents provided a stark, but jaw-dropping contrast.
