This interesting a 3,500-square-foot multilevel home was built in 1975 by Ian Morrison, who took inspiration for the design from Tolkien’s “Lord of the Rings.”  In case you wanted to compare the house to the Lord of the Rings again click here and find savings on the books and the films. The house is set atop a hill in Barbados, which is an independent continental island in the western Atlantic Ocean. There are distant views of ocean and mature trees, a patio, a pool and a gazebo sheltering a bathtub.

The property is in St. Joseph, a parish that extends from the center of the island to the eastern coast. Shopping, nightlife and public beaches are a 25-minute drive away in Holetown. The airport is about an hour drive.

Most of the properties in Barbados, where swimming is not recommended, houses start at about $1 million. In general, inland property, where this home is situated, is 30 to 40 percent cheaper. The most desirable properties are found along the calm western beaches known as the “Platinum Coast.” There, 900-square-foot one-bedroom condominiums start at $850,000.

The majority of foreign buyers in Barbados, formerly a British colony, are from England. In recent years, the strength of the British pound provided favorable exchange rates. American and Canadian buyers also own homes in Barbados.

  1. The design of the house is marvelous,both interior and exterior. However, I am not sure how much is related with LOTR thematic.

  2. You do realize that “Lord of the Rings” is a book that came out long before the movie, right? Obviously, the designer of this home did read the book and was able to visualize certain aspects of the book and incorporate them into his home. I see a lot of “elven” influence as well as “hobbit” in the rooms.

  3. Hey, this guy is my uncle. We moved to Australia so I
    have only seen him once since I was 4, but wow I wish I had some of his talent!

  4. I see more actual southwestern american/mexican style architecture in this home than anything else. I have read the tolkien books over 100 times, and the porch with the table (The Council of Elrond) is the only thing I see that might resemble anything from tolkien’s novels. This home is clearly an open air oasis, but I see nothing tolkien about it. Sorry. It’s beautiful and scerene, and it is very lovely, but not tolkien.
