House in the Hill0

Those of you familiar with The Lord of the Rings  (films or novels) probably hold a special place in your hearts for Hobbiton, a small town in The Shire.  I know I do.  How can you not fall in love with a town that is so ecologically in tune with the world that it builds houses inside of hills instead of on top of them?
