Truly Bizarre Chelsea Hobbit Grotto Gets a Little Cheaper

New, 22 comments

In a hole in the ground in West Chelsea there lived a hobbit... one presumes, because how else do you explain this incredibly strange garden duplex? (In reality, the place is the work of serial weird-apartment-designers Colin and Pamela Rath.) The uniquely laid out pad hit the market last June asking $4.15 million, and later had its price chopped down to $3.55 million. As of last week it has been pricechopped for a second time, albeit slightly, down to $3.37 million. That might still seem like a lot of money, but keep in mind that you can make some of it back by finding a subletter during the six months of the year that you'll be on a quest with thirteen dwarves and a wizard.
