A hobbit-style eco-home could be yours for £1.75million

This quirky property, Three Oaks, is one for anyone who loves The Lord Of The Rings and The Hobbit.

Why? Because it’s a house that looks like it could be straight from Middle Earth.

The four-bedroom house is in Grinshill, in Shropshire, and one of the current owners had the house built in 2017.

It has a living roof, solar panels, borehole and bio-mass boiler that all make it highly sustainable.

The living roof improves the home’s thermal performance by reducing the temperature in summer and locking heat in during the winter.

The roof also creates a natural habitat for flora and fauna.


The property has more than 7,000sq ft of space, with a large entrance hall, kitchen/breakfast room, music room, four bedrooms and four bathrooms on the ground floor.

Upstairs there is a library, sitting room, drawing room, dining room, kitchen and two store rooms.


There is also an oak-framed triple garage with two large store rooms. The house sits in just over an acre of land with a manicured lawn, large terrace and a separate garden room ideal for entertaining.

It is within walking distance of Grinshill Hill and has access to local bridleways and footpaths.

Alastair Summerfield, from property agency Strutt & Parker, said: ‘The owners used to own a neighbouring property, which they sold and retained this plot of land at the bottom of their garden and built Three Oaks.

‘It’s really eco-friendly. The biomass boiler brings down your heating bills, the electricity bill is less with the solar panels and the borehole is used for irrigation and car cleaning and the green roof helps reduce your carbon footprint.

‘There is still some mains electricity and water usage but generally bills are lower here.

‘The location is great. Grinshill is a really popular village, it’s not far from Shrewsbury but you’re surrounded by countryside here.


‘The property is completely unique. In Shropshire there’s lots of period and character properties but we don’t get a tremendous amount of modern, stylish architectural houses so this is quite rare for us.

‘The owners have thought about how they want to live in it as a modern family so it has a huge open plan living space.

‘It is a great entertaining house, one of the best I have seen, and quite private with long, uninterrupted views.

‘If you like a modern style it really does work.’
