You can have your own Hobbit float home in Delta

Anyone interested in the float home is asked to make an appointment and advised not to go on the property without a realtor present. That cautionary advice may or may not be given because of the possible unannounced appearance of the wizard Gandalf.
Hobbit House
So, how serious are you about buying a house? Serious enough to think about living along the water, in a cozy enclave that could be Bilbo Baggins, the Hobbit’s home?

The price is enticing for a float home located on River Road in Ladner along the Fraser River. It’s listed for only $259,000, (with yearly taxes at $240) has a large deck with a view of the North Shore Mountains and, as the Real Estate Weekly describes, “a passing parade of wildlife … ducks, herons, seals and otters.

“The original-owner was a genius with wood … hand-carved outdoor shingles and barn wood kitchen cupboards,” the realtor adds, noting it is akin to a hobbit house.

In addition to mortgage costs, there’s also a marina moorage fee of about $1,400 a month. Pets are okay, but kids are not at the 566 sq.-foot home.

That cautionary advice may or may not be given because of the possible unannounced appearance of the wizard Gandalf; or the possibly ribald parties that may occur with the unexpected arrivals of the 13 dwarfs as they return to Middle earth.
