Priced at £4,575,000 ($5.93 million USD), the residence is where Tolkien lived from 1930-1947. The 4,000 square-foot home, which was built in 1924, has six bedrooms, high ceilings throughout, and windows that provide ample natural night.

Realtor Breckon & Breckon is selling the home--you can see more pictures and get additional details at the official listing here.

Tolkien published The Hobbit in 1937, after which he began work on The Lord of the Rings. Presumably he did at least some writing in this home, which no doubt increases the value of the estate.

No further Lord of the Rings movies have been announced, but Amazon is spending a lot of money to make a new Lord of the Rings TV show. Just recently, it was announced that the actor who played Benjen Stark on Game of Thrones has been cast in the Lord of the Rings show.
