The Joshua Tree Boulder House is a project developed by American landscape architect Garett Carlson and is apparently “glued” to some boulders. Well, there are faux boulders made for integrating the house into its natural surroundings from Joshua Tree National Park, which is well known for its rugged terrain and interesting boulder shapes. Being a huge LOTR fan, I can’t stop thinking about the resemblance between Bilbo’s warm home – which is integrated into a hill – and this real house, which blends in perfectly with the surrounding boulders and trees that shelter it, going almost unnoticed if you look at it from certain angles.
Being protected by boulders, fake boulders and vegetation, the home offers a nice amount of privacy and loses itself in the greatness of its surroundings. The house holds a close connection to its environment, being made from natural materials such as wood, concrete, metal and glass. The interior is very spacious and modern, holding two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen, dining and a living room. The house opens to a patio that has a little pond at one side and a fire pit on the other. This intriguing residence is for sale, so if you love it and you have $975,000, may it be yours.
